SND is a coordinated national infrastructure that aims to facilitate preservation and access to high-quality research data from a number of scientific disciplines, for example by providing and developing standards for documentation and storage of research data. SND currently receives research data direct from researchers or research teams, and makes them accessible via SND’s metadata portal and repository.

To meet future demands for open access to research data, the operation is being developed into a distributed large-scale model in collaboration with a number of Swedish higher education institutions. SND is Sweden’s service provider in CESSDA-ERIC.
