Open Research Data (ORD)
USI aims at implementing an Open Research Data strategy according to the Confederation’s initiatives on Open Research Data and Open Access. (For further information on Open Access at USI visit the dedicated USI Library webpage)
The Research Data Manager collaborates to this implementation and makes sure that research data are organized and maintained according to the FAIR (Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, Reusability) principles.
Furthermore, USI is eligible for swissuniversities' funding on ORD-related projects as part of the implementation of the Swiss National Open Research Data Strategy.
