Research Data Management at UoC

Research data are [...] understood as data resulting from a scientific project, e. g. through source research, experiments, measurements, surveys or interviews.

DFG 2009

Research data management refers to the handling of this data (also: primary research data) over the entire data life cycle. This ranges from the collection, evaluation, (further) processing to archiving and, if possible, publication and reuse of the same.

Sustainable research data management requires new processes and competencies in research and teaching. The Cologne Competence Center for Research Data Management (C3RDM) bundles the expertise on campus and offers numerous information services in order to provide scientists at the University of Cologne with comprehensive support in research data management.

In addition to events and individual consulting offers by the C3RDM-Team, the guideline on the handling of research data at the UoC provides you with a first orientation for you and your working group.
