Digital research data is diverse and is generated in various disciplines during scientific activities, e.g. through measurements, surveys or source work. This includes, for example, laboratory data, audiovisual data, simulations, bibliographies, survey results, texts or software used. The aim of research data management is to make the data accessible, reusable and verifiable for the research community over the entire life cycle in the long term and independently of individuals.

Planned dates November 2023 - March 2024
