The Environmental Information Data Centre (EIDC) is part of the Natural Environment Research Council's (NERC) Environmental Data Service and is hosted by the UK Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (UKCEH). We manage nationally-important datasets concerned with the terrestrial and freshwater sciences.
Our staff help researchers in ensuring that the data they produce are curated appropriately for the long-term, guaranteeing their security, accessibility and re-usability for the user community.
The EIDC is certified as a trusted repository by CoreTrustSeal.
We accept environmental data in re-usable formats for curation, including long-term storage and public dissemination. Priority is given to data generated as a result of funding by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), however, data generated through other funding sources will also be considered for deposit at the discretion of the EIDC.
Our team provide advice on best practice for data management during a project's lifetime and assistance in depositing data with the EIDC for long-term curation.
