Scientific Library Services and Information Systems (LIS)
Funding Programme: "Information Infrastructures for Research Data"
Quality assured research data is one of the main cornerstones of scientific discovery. Ensuring its sustainable availability, processing and usability are therefore important aspects of the science policy that the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) supports through its funding.
The funding programme aims to support science and the humanities in drawing up and implementing specific and needs-oriented requirements for future structures, or structures undergoing further development, for the improved handling of research data and research data repositories.
This programme is directed at scientific information-infrastructure institutions such as libraries, archives, computing and media centres in cooperation with researchers.
