LUPOP (Lund University Population Research Platform) is an infrastructure at Lund University with the aim of facilitating sharing of population data for scientific research.
Population data is information that can be directly or indirectly linked to a specific person. It may comprise age, sex, and address, but also sensitive data such as ethnicity and medical details. Handling of such data is regulated in e.g., the General Data Protection Act (GDPR). Therefore, it may not be made open access. However, it can still be made accessible.
LUPOP provides expertise to support functions at Lund University whose role it is to help researchers handle research data, e.g., Data Access Unit (a network for the faculty libraries). However, the main mission of LUPOP is to enable maintenance of population research data in such a way that it can be re-used in research.
