A paper authored by researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory studies the success of the Energy Materials Network Data Hub—a secure, customizable scientific data sharing platform. Initiated in 2016 and now representing seven EMN consortia, including HydroGEN, the EMN Data Hubs function as customizable virtual laboratories to accelerate research breakthroughs on even the toughest materials challenges in the energy sector. They accomplish this by providing a common infrastructure that teams can use to share and leverage resources—saving time and money in the process. The paper, published in the International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications, outlines the specifics on implementing, operating, and collaborating using EMN’s Data Hub platform.
