The RMDS has been building and serving data and research communities since 2009. With a global community of more than 40,000 members, the RMDS Lab was created in 2019 to serve its members and partners, and to be owned by its members and partners worldwide.

RMDS Lab created the world’s first NFT marketplace for science IPs, in combination with its RMDS Ecosystem to solve the four big problems all scientists face: funding difficulties, high project failure ratios, low IP utilization, and the replication crisis. Our RMDS platform allows RMDS to serve scientists worldwide to make them more impactful, while also serve investors and collectors of science and technology IPs.

The RMDS Lab has also been empowering businesses with affordable data science, machine learning, and blockchain solutions since 2019.

Our Mission

Our Vision

We seek to radically affect change in the scientific and business world with Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain.
