Connect your data sources

Coscine integrates the Research Data Store (RDS.NRW), an S3-compatible object storage, and will also integrate Gitlab repositories in the future to display all project-relevant research data at a glance.

Manage your Metadata

Coscine can describe data from different sources with metadata, so that external repositories also meet the requirements of modern research data management. Coscine allows metadata schemas to be defined per data source in order to assign precisely fitting metadata. The selection of metadata schemas is continuously extended.

Give your project partners access

Collaborative projects require easy, shared access to project-specific data. In Coscine, partners from different institutions can access research data jointly and easily. Registration via ORCID and DFN-AAI allows cooperation across universities and national borders.
