How it works?

Browse the POD catalogue and request your required datasets. Samples of each data collection are available for you to view. There is a small charge to cover the data retrieval, depending on the size or complexity of the request, and this will be calculated after we have received your request.

When you have chosen the data collections and time periods you are interested in we will ask you to briefly describe what you intend to use the data for. When you have submitted your request, we will endeavour to respond to you about the delivery of your request within 3 working days.

Get in touch

If you cannot find a data collection here that meets your research needs or you want to make a general enquiry, then please get in touch with us at ORE Catapult.

We will work with you to understand your requirements and see how our research programmes and data repositories can help you.
