The UK Catalysis Hub (UKCH) is designing and implementing an infrastructure to facilitate the management of research data produced by researchers, the Catalysis Data Infrastructure (CDI). The CDI is proposed to encompass the presentation of research outputs (publications and data) in a digital repository that brings together an array of heterogeneous data types. The CDI is designed to hold references to research outputs, maintains links between them and promotes publishing and sharing of data. The proposal is to create persistent relationships between the different types of data and publications complying with FAIR data principles (findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reuse). In this paper, we will discuss how the elicited requirements for data management are being incorporated in the design of the CDI. The prototype has been used in discussion with researchers and in presentations to the UKCH community, generating increased interest and providing ideas for further development. Additionally, the CDI prototype and its code are publicly available for further analysis.
