Data Access Unit (DAU)
The SND network consists of the Swedish higher education institutions and public research institutes that have agreed to create local units for managing research data (Data Access Units, or DAUs). The main task for a DAU is to assist researchers in their respective organisation in making research data as accessible as possible, in accordance with the FAIR data principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable). This includes to offer training and support to researchers in data management and accessibility, as well as to publish the researchers’ metadata in SND’s national research data catalogue, and to ensure secure storage of the data.
