Research funders such as the DFG (= German Research Foundation), BMBF (= Federal Ministry of Education and Research) and the EU increasingly require you to provide information on how you plan to handle research data as soon as you submit a project proposal. In order to support the scientists at Justus-Liebig University Giessen in meeting these new requirements, the university has created the new position of Research Data Consultant in November 2016. The position is located at the university’s library and is working together closely with the HRZ (University Computer Center) and the StF (ger) (Research Staff Department).
