We offer consulting on everything related to digitalization in research for researchers from all scientific disciplines. We provide support from the application process to the end of the project.

Our consulting services are tailored to the individual needs of each researcher, research group or project. The following topic examples are intended to give an impression of the possible range and are not an exhaustive list.

  • Guidelines and principles to be aware of and follow
  • Information on data management in funding applications
  • Creation of data management plans (DMP) and software management plans (SMP)
  • Data storage, including data organization and data security
  • Porting and scaling of research software
  • Description of research data and software with metadata
  • Questions regarding the reuse and publication of data or software (e.g., licenses, publication media)
  • Archiving of research data

We also provide advice on the selection of tools, repositories, etc., as well as on the necessary resources. Additionally, we support the search for suitable cooperation partners for relevant methods at the location.

In addition to scheduling individual appointments, feel free to join our monthly meet-up for individual hands-on support.
