Welcome to the Data Repository

NKN is now Research Computing and Data Services (RCDS)!

We provide data management support for UI researchers and their regional, national, and international collaborators. This support keeps researchers at the cutting-edge of science and increases our institution's competitiveness for external research grants. Quality data and metadata developed in research projects and curated by RCDS (formerly NKN) is a valuable, long-term asset upon which to develop and build new research and science.
