Call for tenders for a landscape and cost analysis of data repositories

The SNSF, together with the programme «Scientific information» (P-5) of swissuniversities, launches a call to develop a concept that analyzes the current need for data repositories, shows the existing types and describes different funding scenarios. The submission deadline is 2 July 2018.

The report should deliver a multi-layered overview of national and international data repositories, their features, ways of operation and financial flows. Conclusions should contribute to possible solutions for supporting the establishment, repurposing or expansion of data repositories and contribute to their visibility.

The call is public and aimed at institutions specialising in issues related to research data management and data storage. The submission deadline is 2 July 2018.
