JRA3 FREE Data - Facilitating the Re-use and Exchange of Experimental Data


Facilitating the Re-use and Exchange of Experimental Data


The main aims of ‘FREE Data’ are to develop tools and protocols for the effective sharing of data that allows effective flux and exchange with numerical modelling and field case studies. As part of the work we will test and demonstrate these tools and protocols with a range of datasets, starting with relatively simple cases and building up to the most complex and most interdisciplinary datasets that will be generated in HYDRALAB+: those produced by work on ecohydraulics.

This Joint Research Activity will develop new methods for sharing and exchanging experimental results to encourage greater data flux and will demonstrate how the exchange of data between laboratories, numerical models and the field environment provides comprehensive solutions to climate change adaptation.

Achieving this will lead to the creation of a free market in open data, which can be used, reused and redistributed by anyone (
