Q. Do I need to pay for sharing my research data via the University data repository?

The current one-off charge for long-term curated data storage at the University of Cambridge data repository is £4/GB for datasets above 20GB. This cost should be budgeted into all future grant applications.

This charge of £4/GB will cover the cost of:

  • Storage in a curated and managed server
  • Hardware and curation
  • Providing a display and search mechanism for your data
  • Backing up your data at three different locations
  • Protection, storage and sharing of your data for as long as it is required by your funder (or for as long as your data are used by others).

Please note that this price is being regularly reviewed and might change in the future. If you have any questions, please contact us.
