Welcome to FREYA

Connected Open Identifiers for Discovery, Access and Use of Research Resources

The FREYA project

FREYA is a 3-year project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme. The project aims to build the infrastructure for persistent identifiers as a core component of open science, in the EU and globally. FREYA will improve discovery, navigation, retrieval, and access of research resources. New provenance services will enable researchers to better evaluate data and make the scientific record more complete, reliable, and traceable. By engaging with the global community through the Research Data Alliance and other research infrastructures, we work together to realise the vision of fully and effectively accessible data. FREYA follows on from the successful THOR project. Read more about what we do here.


Meet the FREYA partners: PANGAEA

Many different organisations are involved in FREYA and in this blog post series we take a closer look at the partners and their work. This time you can read about PANGAEA, an Open Access library aimed at archiving, publishing and distributing geo-referenced data from earth system research.

The PID Graph within the RDA: FREYA/RDA UK Node Workshop

On Tuesday 16 July, FREYA and the RDA UK Node teamed up for a workshop on persistent identifiers. With almost 70 delegates, hosted at the Wellcome Trust, the event provided a great opportunity for a UK audience to engage with FREYA's work and the role of the project within the RDA and beyond. This event was the second workshop arranged by the UK node of the RDA which is co-ordinated by STFC and JISC.
