KonsortSWD - Consortium for the Social, Behavioural, Educational and Economic Sciences

VerbundFDB participates in the development of the national research data infrastructure for the social, behavioural, educational and economic sciences within the framework of the NFDI.

Together with other partners, VerbundFDB is engaged in the development of  KonsortSWD, the national research data infrastructure for the social, behavioural, educational and economic sciences. As one of many subject-specific consortia, KonsortSWD is part of the  National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI), which has been funded by the federal and state governments with approximately 70 million euros per year since 2020.

Within KonsortSWD, VerbundFDB is involved in two work packages:

KonsortSWD collaborates with many RDCs and institutions – also from the field of educational research – to develop services that support researchers in sharing, using and managing data. An excerpt:

  • As part of the    RDCnet work package, access conditions to sensitive, non-anonymised data are being improved by networking guest researcher’s workstations.
  • The work package    RDC Support supports the diverse landscape of RDCs in standardising and harmonising their work processes and offers.
  • The work package    RDM Skills aims to support research data management advisors and research data management staff by providing an online platform for teaching and information materials on research data management.
