Published: 28 September 2021

The Swedish National Data Service (SND) has been awarded funding for an additional grant period, 2023-2026, from the Swedish Research Council’s call Grant for research infrastructure of national interest.

SND is a national research infrastructure for open access to research data, run and co-financed by a consortium of nine universities. SLU is a member of the consortium and contributes with expertise in climate- and environmental data. Nearly 40 higher education institutions and research organisations are part of the SND network.

The SND Research Data Catalogue can be utilised by researchers and environmental monitoring and assessment staff at SLU for publishing data or to find data published by others. With this continued funding, SND has been given the opportunity to further develop its e-services and collaborations nationally and internationally.

SLU staff are welcome to contact Data Management Support (DMS) regarding data management issues. We at DMS look forward to continue assisting researchers and environmental monitoring and assessment staff at SLU in data publication via the SND Research Data Catalogue.

Note: As of July 1st the Data Curation Unit (DCU) and the Unit for Data Management Guidance and Development (‘Miljödatastöd’) have merged and formed a new unit called Data Management Support (DMS), as described in this news item.
