Investigación Tecnológico de Monterrey

It is time to ignite science to create and share knowledge to solve high-impact problems. It is time to form a community of interdisciplinary talent to help us find the best answers to the major problems we face in the world today.

Interdisciplinary solutions for a world with complex problems

Through research, innovation and entrepreneurship, we have the potential to solve problems affecting society today. This is why we created three high-impact interdisciplinary institutes to help us generate better ideas and solutions to do our bit for a better society.

Research Data Hub

An Open Data Hub is an online data repository that preserves research data over time and helps other researchers to find it.

At Tec de Monterrey we have the Research Data Hub (RDH), an open research and innovation platform for dissemination, which allows us to publicize the research being done at the institution. Here you will find research data from all areas and disciplines of knowledge generated in schools and institutes.

Are you a researcher at Tec de Monterrey? You can deposit your research data in the RDH to be preserved, used and cited by other institutions.
