„eResearch – Management of Research Data “
Intelligent management of data is a current topic in many areas. This especially applies to sciences which increasingly evolved from experimental and simulation-based to data-driven research. This is not only true for the natural sciences but also for life sciences, social sciences and humanities. A common question is the efficient management of large-volume of data as well as the analytics associated with it. “Cloud Computing” and “Big Data Analytics” are current topics in computer science to facilitate this kind of research. This includes the support of the typical lifecycle ranging from capturing data to analytics, archiving and re-use. The talk shows examples from the Goettingen Research Campus how different disciplines are supported in this endeavor and how research data management is established as a strategic institutional objective as part of the campus research infrastructure.
