Research data can be generated for different purposes and through different processes. By interpreting and processing the data a meaning will be added to them. They will be translated into useful information. To facilitate this process and to enable high quality en secure data research a UMCG Research IT Programme is in development in collaboration with the University of Groningen (RuG).
The Programme aims to develop and combine facilities for data management and research and to provide researchers with useful support(tools). There will be special concern for good data stewardship throughout the whole data cycle, from the collection of data up to long-term archiving.
