ProjectbwFDM-Info II

Research data management information and tools for scientific praxis

Research data management (RDM) supports researchers with simple handling and sustainable storage of all types of research data. Based on the needs identified in the completed State project bwFDM-Communities, bwFDM-Info provides researchers with bundled information on a wide range of questions about the handling of research data. The project is structured according to multiple core objectives: the creation of an information portal, the provision of a planning tool for data management (DMPT), and finally the bundling of State e-science initiatives related to FDM.

The follow-up project bwFDM-Info II primarily focused on raising awareness of the information channels and tools developed in Phase I, thus ensuring the establishment of sustainable operations.
