Costs

Data archiving

The costs for depositing data are € 4.50 per GB. Every researcher can upload up to 10 GB of data per year to the 4TU.ResearchData-archive free of charge. By default, this data will be available via Open Access and be stored for a minimum of 15 years. It can also be extended for periods of 15 years at the same rate. Your data will be stored in three different locations to ensure its safety.
