Sharing Data with External Collaborators


Collaboration Projects

For help with collaboration projects please email or call 0117 394 1732 / 0117 394 0199. Create project file space that can be shared securely with your collaborators.

  • Supports both read only and read/write access for collaborators via SFTP.
  • High security: traffic is encrypted, only accessible by registered collaborators.
  • Supports resumption of interrupted file transfers.


SFTP read/write sharing is only available from a different type of project space on the RDSF called a Collaboration Project. This must be requested via a revised version of the Application for Access to Research Storage.
