Research Data Repositories

An overview of research data repositories and portals with Helmholtz participation is realized by the Helmholtz Open Science Office with the help of re3data - Registry of Research Data Repositories.

Research Data Infrastructures in Helmholtz

The Helmholtz Open Science Office has been actively involved in the operation of re3data - Registry of Research Data Repositories since 2011. This global service offers researchers, funding organizations, and other stakeholders an overview of digital research infrastructures for making research data accessible. As of April 2022, the directory lists over 2,800 repositories, databases, and portals.

Funding agencies such as the European Commission recommend researchers use the service to implement the open science conditions in Horizon 2020 as well as the new Horizon Europe funding program. re3data also provides information for the Open Science Monitor of the European Commission and OpenAIRE’s Open Science Observatory. The National Science Foundation (NSF) recommends re3data for researching suitable research data repositories. The European Research Council (ERC) also lists re3data among its recommendations for Open Science, and the German Research Foundation (DFG) refers to the service in a checklist for handling research data in DFG projects.

Since January 2020, the registry is being further developed as part of the DFG project re3data COREF.

List of Research Data Repositories with Helmholtz Participation

The following list documents the research data repositories in the Helmholtz Association. Further information can be found in the re3data registry:
