DataHub Initiative of the Research Field Earth and Environment


The DataHub of the Research Field Earth and Environment is a joint initiative of all centers of the Helmholtz Association participating in the research program 'Changing Earth'. Three SubHubs (ATMO, MARE and TERRA) assigned to the compartments of the Earth system jointly form the DataHub.

The DataHub brings together the (Earth system) data in the research area Earth and Environment. This process requires a consistent implementation of the FAIR principles and opens the data to the outside (openness).

It thus represents an offer to all researchers and other users of the data to gain new insights.

Within the DataHub, data management tools are developed and made available, and data products are offered in thematic viewers. The continuous and long-term development process of these solutions is the DataHub's task. Furthermore, networking of the DataHub with other national (e.g. NFDI) and international initiatives (e.g. EOSC, RDA) takes place.
