Research data management & Open science working group

The Institute-wide Research Data Management & Open Science Working Group was set up by the Institute's Board of Directors in 2018 and is dedicated to the collaborative development of RDM and Open Science practices ever since.

It includes representatives of various research areas, organizational units, and career stages. Given the multidisciplinary nature of the Institute’s research and the highly diverse data sets produced, a broad variety of perspectives seems ideal.

The group consists of approximately 20 members and meets every 10 weeks to discuss new developments, generate workshop topics, and share insights from relevant events. Since Open Science thrives on exchange, the working group joined the German Reproducibility Network, an interdisciplinary consortium of various research institutions in Germany that aims to increase the trustworthiness and transparency of scientific research through joint initiatives.
