Priority Initiative "Digital Information"

The Priority Initiative “Digital Information” is a joint initiative of the Alliance of Science Organisations in Germany that aims to improve the provision of information in research and teaching.

The Priority Initiative, which was launched in 2008, will continue through 2017. Its main goals are:

  • to guarantee the broadest possible access to digital publications, research data and other source materials and thus ensure that they can be used in other research contexts

  • to create an optimal framework for the international distribution and reception of German publications and research data

  • to ensure the long-term availability of the digital media and contents that have been acquired from around the world and their integration in the digital research environment

  • to support IT-based research by means of innovative information technologies and digital methods.
