Research services

RDS is in the process of developing its service and is growing the support available for accessing the wide range of datasets accessible from public sector organisations.

RDS welcomes enquiries from private-sector organisations to discuss the datasets which would be of interest to them. RDS is working during a pilot period to 31 March 2022 to establish the more specific basis on which private sector companies can access public sector data.

Our initial service offering is focused on the creation of a Data Catalogue which proves oversight to data as well as building researcher support services.

Over the next 18 months RDS and its partners will roll out new services and functionality to help researchers and analysts to unlock value from public sector data.

These will include a linkage ready data holdings portfolio, a catalogue of various public sector datasets and metadata, researcher triage support, data analysis and data controller services.
