Research Data

Research Data

Research data is the backbone of our research. Results from measurements, observations and experiments as well as from extensive calculations are available as data in different formats. The processing, maintenance, structured storage and archiving are indispensable for efficient and innovative research, often based on a comparison with previous results and further development. In collaboration with other working groups and universities, the exchange of these research data, often also in open access, is becoming increasingly important.Andreas Timm-Giel. Präsident TUHH

Research Data Repository

Since February 2019 a repository for research data is available at the TUHH: TUHH Open Research

The repository is available to members of the TUHH and ensures a permanent and reliable storage of research data generated at the TUHH. The repository is institutional and not discipline-specific. It is thus primarily available for the research data for which no suitable discipline-specific repository is available. The data is stored according to FAIR data principles to ensure that data is searchable, accessible, interoperable, and usable. The data is usually open access and is provided with a license for the after-use. It is possible to restrict access to user groups to the point of storage without public access.

Research Data Management

At the TUHH, support for the management of research data is to be set up throughout the complete data life cycle.

  • Data Creation
  • Data processing
  • Data analysis
  • Data archiving
  • Data access
  • Data Recovery

Digital research data, its organization, usability and archiving, are becoming increasingly important in the planning and publication of research projects in all scientific disciplines. The main focus of the information platform is an introduction into various areas of research data management by means of practical articles on individual aspects, which are repeatedly shown in research.
