Trusted Research Environments

Help researchers to exploit your data securely.

What is a Trusted Research Environment (TRE)?

A TRE is a secure environment that brings together:


Approved researchers


Appropriately selected and redacted datasets


Analytical tools and computing power

Benefits of TRE

  • Who is our Trusted Research Environment for?

    Organisations with valuable data (governments, universities, health services, charities and others) can make best use of it.

  • Why do we use a Cloud storage system?

    Cloud is a key component of many TREs because it provides global secure accessibility with unlimited compute and data storage that can be provided as needed, scaled and removed when new insights have been gained.

  • World-leading solutions

    AWS has built an open-source TRE environment that takes advantage of its world-leading Cloud computing environment. This solution is in use in a number of UK universities and other institutions.

  • Collaboration is key

    Digital Space has worked closely with AWS on TRE and can help you gain the benefits of this new platform.
