The Aalto University Data Hub aims to facilitate research, teaching and studying activities at Aalto University. We make research data across different schools and research fields easier to find and discover by providing neatly structured information about different data sources: data sets, databases, vendors, repositories, and other data providers. Additionally, we offer support for accessing as well as working with the data to further promote the reuse of costly datasets.
