Trusted Research Environment (SafePod)

A standardised safe setting


The University of Aberdeen is part of the SafePod Network (SPN) which aims to “significantly improve the quantity and diversity of public benefit research by providing researchers with equitable and secure access to data through the provision of a network of SafePods across the UK."

In Aberdeen, it is located in the Interdisciplinary Hub at Crombie, meaning you can book dates and times that are convenient to you.
