Contributing to the research data effort - re3data.org and OpenAIRE sign MoU 
during Open Access Week
October 2013 - Athens and Karlsruhe
In order to foster the sharing of research data in science and humanities, 
digital research infrastructures need to be in place to ensure the permanent 
accessibility and re-use of research data. A number of these infrastructures, 
often referred to as research data repositories, have been, or are in the 
process of, being developed  at both institutional and discipline levels.
With this Memorandum of Understanding, OpenAIRE and re3data.org - Registry of 
Research Data Repositories - agree to work jointly to facilitate research data 
registration, discovery, access and re-use. By their joint effort, the two 
partners will contribute to the development of a vital data-sharing ecosystem, 
that supports scientists in their efforts to meet the growing demand of Open 
re3data.org provides an overview of existing research data repositories. Since 
2012, re3data.org has indexed research data repositories offering researchers, 
funding organizations, libraries and publishers an overview of the 
heterogeneous research data repository landscape. An innovative icon system 
helps researchers to easily identify a suitable research data repository for 
the storage of their research data. re3data.org is funded by the German 
Research Foundation (DFG).
OpenAIRE is an open access infrastructure, which promotes open research and 
measures the impact of funding streams. This is done both through its 
Europe-wide network of National Open Access Desks and via services for data 
deposit and discovery through its data repository ZENODO. Moreover, through 
harvesting repositories and mining techniques OpenAIRE infers links between 
publications, research funding and research data. This enables discovery and 
re-use, as well as monitoring and the ability to provide metrics. OpenAIREplus 
is funded by the EC 7th Framework Programme.
As a first step re3data.org and OpenAIRE will exchange metadata to enable the 
easy identification of appropriate research data repositories for the access 
and storage of research data. OpenAIRE will integrate data repositories indexed 
in the re3data.org registry and in turn return information about usage 
statistics for datasets and inferred links between data and publications. 
Moreover OpenAIRE and re3data.org will intensify their dialogue on 
best-practices and possible standards and guidelines for the emerging research 
data repository landscape.
