The tasks of the Center for Research Data Management have spanned a wide range. With the move, the technical and non-technical employees are now physically closer together. In this way, communication within the team can be intensified, thus facilitating the sometimes challenging translation of IT language into user-friendly implementations.
By hiring five new project members for the digitization project FAIR Data Austria, our team has grown considerably and needs more space. The project provides the impetus for the TU-wide expansion of research data management infrastructures. For example, it is planned to provide the members of the TU Wien with a TU-owned data repository and an institutional GitLab instance in the second quarter of 2021. The project also plans to develop a machine-actionable DMP tool and a central contact point for questions regarding the FAIR principles, which will be offered in a timely manner. The conception of a repository for databases or for complex, dynamic data sets is also on the project agenda.
FAIR Data Austria
The FAIR Data Austria project is one of the selected digitisation projects at public universities which are funded by the BMBWF between 2020 and 2024. It contributes to strengthening the knowledge transfer between universities, economy and society and supports the sustainable development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC, opens an external URL in a new window). The implementation of the FAIR principles, opens an external URL in a new window plays an essential role in this context.
FAIR Data Austria provides complementary building blocks for the projects Austrian DataLAB and Services and RIS Synergy, which together with FAIR Data Austria form the project cluster Research Data.
