SND – Swedish National Data Service

Swedish National Data Service (SND) is a research data infrastructure that supports accessibility, preservation, and reuse of research data. The SND Search function makes it easy to find, use, and cite research data from a variety of scientific disciplines.

SND is present throughout the Swedish research ecology, through an extensive network of around 40 higher education institutions and other research organisations. Together, SND and this network strive to create a distributed system of certified research data repositories, with the SND main office as a central node. The certification means that SND ensures that research data are managed, stored, and made accessible in a secure and sustainable manner, today and for the future. SND collaborates with various international stakeholders in order to advance global access to research data.

SND is governed by a consortium of nine Swedish universities: University of Gothenburg, Chalmers University of Technology, Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Lund University, Stockholm University, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Umeå University, and Uppsala University. University of Gothenburg is the host university, and subsequently the SND head office is located in Gothenburg. The SND operations are primarily funded by the Swedish Research Council and the consortium universities
