Coordination for research data management


In accordance with the Rectorate's decision, all research data management (RDM) activities at the RWTH are controlled and designed under the auspices of the IT Center. To this end, the role of RDM coordinator was created.

The main task of the RDM Coordinator is to establish RDM processes and continuously develop them further. In this context, cooperation projects between the RWTH and other universities and non-university research institutions are being expanded within the framework of the RDM.

In addition, the FDM coordinator represents RWTH in the core team of the Consortium for Engineering Sciences and is responsible for implementing the decisions made there at RWTH.

The RDM Coordinator reports directly to the Director of the IT Center and also represents the RDM topic externally on his behalf, e.g. at scientific conferences.
