VerbundFDB as part of KonsortSWD

VerbundFDB is participating in the development of the national research data infrastructure for the social, behavioural, educational and economic sciences within the framework of the German National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI).

VerbundFDB has joined other partners in the development of  KonsortSWD – Consortium for the Social, Behavioural, Educational and Economic Sciences. As one of many subject-specific consortia, KonsortSWD is part of the  German National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI), which has been funded by the federal and state governments with approximately 70 million euros per year since 2020.

KonsortSWD cooperates with many research data centres (RDC) and institutions - also from the field of educational research – to develop services that support researchers in sharing, using and managing data. An excerpt:

  • RDCnet: In this work package, conditions of access to sensitive, non-anonymised data are improved by networking visiting scientists' workplaces.
