Open EM Data Network

The Open EM Data Network (OpenEM) is a consortium of Swiss electron microscopy facilities working together to:

  • Improve Open Research Data (ORD) practices in the Swiss EM community
  • Provide an open and FAIR repository for Swiss EM data not hosted elsewhere
  • Standardize EM metadata & automate collection at Swiss EM facilities
  • Follow a consistent data lifecycle when collecting data at different facilities
  • Streamline publication of EM data into open repositories like EMPIAR, EMDB, and the PDB
  • The Open EM Data Network project has a website here.

    It also has a Slack channel. Ask others to be included there.
