Research Data Management

Research data management (RDM) refers to the organization, storage, preservation, and sharing of data collected or generated during a research project. Eurac Research supports its researchers with their RDM through both advisory and technical research data services. Our aim is to ensure that our researchers are supported through the whole research data lifecycle.

RDM Roadmap

The Research Data Management (RDM) Roadmap sets objectives and delivery targets for research data services in Eurac Research. The RDM Roadmap is a coordinating tool that brings together different stakeholders and establishes a common work plan for research data management service development. It is a living document developed collaboratively by the RDM Working Group with feedback from institutes, centers, and service departments. In addition, two Eurac Research wide surveys about our collaborators’ research data management behaviors, carried out by the Research Support Office together with the Statistics Office in 2017 and 2019, inform the RDM Roadmap.

The first Eurac Research RDM Roadmap, developed in early 2021 and referring to research data service objectives from mid-2021 to 2023, focuses on institutional RDM strategy development, training and awareness raising, as well as objectives around active data management and data preservation.

RDM Working Group

RDM service development is a multi-stakeholder effort. The Research Support Office works closely together with institutes and centers, the ITC, the Legal Office, and the Statistics Office on RDM. The Research Support Office also convenes the RDM Working Group that brings together all these stakeholders and permits a regular exchange of ideas and information.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
