Organisation

A local infrastructure for supporting researchers RDM work is under construction at the university. Several services and support functions is already in place. The coordination unit is the university library. Coordinator is Thomas Kieselbach.

In addition to the library, the Legal affairs office and ICT Services and System Development are important actors within the field of RDM with specialist competences within the field. The work is coordinated through the university research data group.

The university is also a member of the Swedish national data service consortium (SND) and is actively contributing to the construction of a national infrastructure for RDM within this framework. SND provide information materials, training, support and events within the field.

SND is also the organising entity for the domain specialists of Sweden, who are tasked with supporting their colleagues on the subject of RDM within specific domains of research. Three of the domain specialists are affiliated with Umeå university, all specialised on RDM within the field of register-based research. The domain specialists are also members of the university research data group.
