Since its inception, EUDAT has been working with various European research communities to identify the types of services that researchers commonly need for handling research data and then developing the most relevant of those services. EUDAT is currently offering a range of services for:

  • Data storage: B2SHARE (primarily for storing very large sets of data) and B2DROP (mainly for storing long-tail research data during ongoing research collaborations)
  • Searching for data: B2FIND (searching based on metadata descriptions of data stored in EUDAT data centres and in other data repositories)
  • Authentication and Authorization (AAI) of users: B2ACCESS (enables users to log in using various identities – for example, an identity from the research organisation they work for or with a Google account).
