Service Center Research Data Management


What we do

In Germany, handling research data in a systematic and efficient way is considered part of good scientific practice. German universities are therefore required to set up and develop RDM support services for their researchers.

TU Berlin’s Research Data Management Service Center was established in 2012. It is a collaboration between the University Library, Campus Management (ZECM) and the Research and Technology Transfer Department (Dept. V).

The Service Center’s activities follow the FAIR principles and include information and tips, training and consulting, tools and services, and innovation and networking.
