Open access to research data promises to generate new knowledge more quickly. A comprehensible quality of the data is a central prerequisite for its use beyond the original purpose. On behalf of SWITCH, SATW surveyed experts in Switzerland as to which aspects and measures are particularly important in this respect.
Open Science promotes the creation of new knowledge and access to research results. The management of research data is a major challenge. Together with SWITCH, SATW is analysing existing standards and measures to simplify the exchange of data among researchers.
