Academic research is increasingly based on digital tools and technologies, leading to growing data production and new requirements for data preservation and sharing. Various services have been set up within the University to support researchers facing these developments, such as the digital services catalog, workshops on data management plans (DMP) and a website for research data. The University aims to provide researchers with extensive and coordinated support for data storage, data stewardship, sharing, support and funding mechanisms, as well as legal aspects.
In service since June 2019, Yareta (https://catalogue-si.unige.ch/en/yareta) enables from now on researchers from all Geneva’s Higher Education Institutions to archive and preserve their research data in the long term. In full compliance with the FAIR principles (www.go-fair.org) that are required by Funding agencies regarding Data Repository.
