All research data management (FDM) activities at the RWTH are managed and designed under the auspices of the IT Center. To this end, the role of FDM Coordinator was created. The main task is to establish FDM 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 FDM.
The IT Center operates one of the fastest high-performance computers in Germany for researchers at the RWTH and the state of NRW, but also for students within the framework of teaching. The High Performance Computing (HPC) working group offers further training and methodical support for the efficient use of the central high-performance computing facilities. In research and teaching it deals with methods, tools and productivity of parallel programming and in particular with performance and correctness analysis. PHOTO: Dieter Both
