The aim of the ELKH Data Repository project is to establish the basis for a repository infrastructure service that supports the continuous, long-term management of research data for the whole ELKH research network. It will provide a solution for the secure, digital storage, usage and sharing of research data, as valuable data assets, for research and also, for example, the commercial sector. 

The project will also ensure the dissemination of knowledge on the use of data repositories, the establishment of the policies and regulations on data management necessary at ELKH and institutional level, and the dissemination of national and international standards and recommendations for data and metadata management and storage, including best practices. The ELKH Data Repository will ensure the implementation of the internationally agreed FAIR – Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable – principles for research data within the ELKH network.

At institutional, technological and direct data connectivity level, the ELKH Data Repository will facilitate the integration of Hungary into European initiatives with similar objectives, the most important of which is the EOSC (European Open Science Cloud) pan-European research infrastructure.

The establishment of the ELKH Data Repository will contribute to the achievement of the objectives set out in Hungary’s Research, Development and Innovation Strategy (2021-2030), which include better exploitation of research results produced by public research institutions, the expansion of knowledge flows and knowledge production capacity.
