Abstract for Symposium (IMCW 2014 Antalya)
Research Data Management – Roles and Responsibilities

Research data in today’s global science are produced in huge amounts. Their availability is the key to more efficient local research. However, because of missing local infrastructures the access to research data is still unavailable in many disciplines. The management of research data is fundamental for data sharing and re-using. Some universities in Germany have identified this issue and started to deal with this complex issue and to establish support services. The lack of joint strategies makes is even more challenging to handle this topic. This is due mainly to federal structures in Germany as opposed to centralized structures in e.g. UK. This presentation gives an overview of RDM in German universities with a focus on the University of Hanover. Furthermore, it discusses different roles and responsibilities concerning the whole lifecycle of research data and their management.
