Reusing data in research
You can reuse open data in your research. Commonly used data repositories for your discipline are a good starting point, but you may also look for other data sources for interesting combinations. Data with a licence or restricted access may have conditions for reuse, check the OpenAIRE guide to learn more about how licences affect reuse.

Reusing open cultural heritage data
Open cultural heritage means content or data available in digital format free of charge and openly licensed to use, share or modify. These are not reached by search engines, but with just a few of the largest aggregated digital cultural heritage services you can reach millions of digitised works from around the world.
