Research Data Centers

Data Access for Science and Research – the "Research Data Centre" success story

The German Data Forum has created the research data centre as a model solution for flexible and comprehensive access to sensitive data for science and research. Since their inception, the research data centres have played a pivotal role in the social, empirical and economic sciences and strengthened the international competitiveness of the German research landscape.

Researchers have a highly evolved and sustainable research infrastructure at their disposal, which is a result of independent initiatives from within the scientific community. A decentralized network of 38 data centers provides researchers with user-friendly and cost-efficient access to a wide range of relevant data.

All of the following data centers have been accredited by the German Data Forum (RatSWD) according to uniform and transparent standards.
