Research data management (FDM) is one of the important prerequisites of scientific activity, is a requirement of many funding agencies, and part of good scientific practice. FDM concerns all phases of the research process to process, document, and store data according to the FAIR principles - Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. 

Subject-specific standards and tools are developed to ensure sustainable research data management within the National Research Data Infrastructure consortia. The RPTU Kaiserslautern-Landau is involved in four of these consortia as well as in a basic service project.

The University Library the Computer Center and the Research Department support our scientists in research data management. The library provides advice on topics such as publishing research data, licenses, or data management plans. The Computer Center offers software tools, e.g., for data analysis and electronic lab books, and there are also various options for archiving data. The Research Department advises on the presentation of research data management in the context of third-party funding applications and supports data management plans in cooperation with the UB.
