The client was facing many challenges such as:
Many independent research groups have their own data and infrastructure, with little visibility across the institute
No way to assist with or enforce best practices for data stewardship(e.g. identifiers, metadata etc.)
In order to provide a collaborative environment and secure data catalog for their researchers, they needed an infrastructure supporting data sharing, which would enable maximum use and reuse of data under secure and controlled conditions.
Understand which data is available to be shared in the institute
Improve compliance to regulations (GDPR) and best practices (i.e. FAIR)
Manage the full data lifecycle
