University of Copenhagen - Electronic Research Data Archive (UCPH ERDA or just ERDA) is a storage, sharing and archiving facility provided by University of Copenhagen to employees and students. For now it is limited to the faculty of Science, but it may be extended to all of UCPH in the future to support the general UCPH Data Management Guidelines. ERDA delivers centralized storage space for personal and shared files in addition to archiving of e.g. PhD theses and research data for safe-keeping and publishing. It also comes with a file synchronization service similar to Dropbox, but with the data stored locally at UCPH.

Sensitive and Personal Data (GDPR)

Please note that while ERDA comes with a strong security focus, it is only a solution approved for general scientific data and not for highly sensitive data. In particular it is not for personal data classified as sensitive in the EU Regulation 2016/679 (General Data Protection Regulation). In case you need to work on such sensitive data we recommend the ERDA sister facility SIF, which is intended and approved for exactly that purpose.
