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

We can support you in creating research data management plans, as well as in archiving and publishing your data. Furthermore, we are pleased to answer all questions regarding research data management in third party (external) funding projects.
