Research Data WG

Objectives and tasks

The joint Forschungsdaten von DINI e.V. WG (founded in 2014) and nestor share the goal of supporting interdisciplinary and inter-institutional liaison, as well as the coordination of activities related to the topics of research data and research data management in the German-speaking countries. The insights of experienced specialists and institutions should feed into the management of research data and be disseminated, thereby helping to support the so-called small sciences or smaller infrastructure facilities. The WG cooperates locally, nationally and internationally, as well as on a discipline-specific and interdisciplinary basis with other initiatives to advance research data management in Germany in a coordinated manner.

Key topics include

  •     Long-term preservation of research data
  •     Research data policies
  •     Data management plans
  •     Qualification of / training for different actors
  •     Institutional use of persistent identifiers
  •     Discussion of legal framework in collaboration with the alliance initiative
  •     Cooperation models
  •     Selection and evaluation of research data
  •     Metadata for research data in cooperation with DINI-WG KIM
  •     Research data as an integral part of virtual research environments

The DINI/nestor WG provides a platform in two ways: it uses and participates in the Web-based wiki platform and it is also a platform in the sense of a communication network for the staff involved.
