Research Data and Data Science

In the lead project "Research Data Management (RDM) and Data Science", the initiatives of the members in these areas are bundled and synergy effects are used for joint activities. To meet the massive demand in science and economy, data literacy as well as competencies in research data management and data science are strengthened in the U Bremen Research Alliance. The consortia developing a National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI), in which member institutions are involved, are offered a platform to network and their developments and services are integrated into the RDM-ecosystem in Bremen.
