The InvenioRDM project is an open source collaboration with two main goals: build a turn-key research data management (RDM) repository platform based on Invenio Framework and Zenodo; and grow a community of research institutions, private companies and individuals to sustain the platform going forward.


InvenioRDM is an open-source community made up of research institutions (very broadly defined) with a need to manage, curate and disseminate digital resources such as scholarly works, research data/software and cultural heritage across disciplines and user communities.

The two key principles on which Invenio products are developed is:

  • User Experience. Invenio strives for top of the class user experience so that we can provide services that users love.
  • Scalability. Invenio focuses on supporting large-scale digital repositories that scale with you from a single record to 100 million records.
