The Data Support at the University of Helsinki - Support for the research data life cycle

The Data Support at the University of Helsinki assists researchers in the management of research data. Researchers are offered tools, services, and training regarding the management, use, access to, and sharing of research data. Via  Data Support researchers can reach the data management specialists at the Helsinki University Library, IT Services, Central Archives, Research Affairs, Personnel Services, and Legal Affairs.

We will search together with the researcher or research group for the best solutions for managing the research data during its whole life cycle. Researchers do not need to know which university services to contact. The Data Support network aims to find the right specialists to assist the researchers. Only contact us at the Data Support.

Researchers are the experts on their own research data and the management of it. The Data Support is not responsible for managing the data nor does it give support regarding research methods.
