Research Data Lifecycle

Research data typically undergo several stages. Moreover, the current view is that the life span of research data is not restricted to the research project for which the data were created initially. Potentially, the data will be supplemented, edited, analyzed again and reused by other researchers.

Epic for research

Many data items that are collected specifically for research purposes are best collected through Epic, as capture can be integrated into the care process. This saves time, effort, money and leads to more complete data sets.


The FAIR data principles are a set of principles that enable reuse of data by humans, and by machines. Data should be made Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. Radboud University and Radboudumc have established minimum requirements for sustainable findable (“F”) and Accessible “A” research data.


Radboudumc offers a unified DMP template for all types of Radboudumc research (both human-based research and non-human, fundamental research), providing tailored institutional guidance, example answers and guidance from funders. The institutional DMP template has been approved by the two most common national grant providers: ZonMw and NWO.


CliniQuest is an application which allows you to extract Epic data for your study, without the need for access to Epic and without access to privacy sensitive information.

Castor Electronic Data Capture

Castor is a web-based Electronic Data Capture tool used for clinical research. The tool provides user management including specific user roles, a randomization module, development and management of surveys, support for multi-center trials, easy import and export of data.

Labguru Electronic lab journal

Labguru is an electronic lab journal in which users can organize their research projects and sample management in an easy, accessible way. It is a web-based application where you can manage your experiments, work together, track and report research progress.
