We support your research data management!

The Research Data Service Center supports RDM throughout the entire research process – from research project planning and application filing to the publication and archiving of research data.

We help you implement your RDM in line with the good research practice, the FAIR principles, and open science. The Service Center provides advice and designs basic, general RDM services for academics all across the University.

The promotion of an Open Science culture is an important pillar of the Excellence Strategy of the University of Bonn.

Open Science comprises a series of measures aimed at ensuring transparency, traceability and reproducibility are met by the increasingly digital scientific community. By incorporating structured research data management into your work, you ensure that your research data are understandable and reusable, also beyond your current project.

In addition to the Research Data Service Center, the Open Access Service Center supports you in making your research results openly accessible.
