Like many other Universities, Loughborough faced a number of challenges in meeting the expectations of its research funders, in particular:

  • publishing the metadata describing the research data it holds
  • where appropriate providing access to the research data
  • preserving the research data for a minimum of ten years since last accessed.

In addition to these challenges, the University also wanted to further promote its world-leading research and believed that one method of doing so, was by exposing the underlying data that supported the research to its peers, future collaborators and the public at large.
