Who we are

As part of the NFDI, the RatSWD and KonsortSWD develop a research data infrastructure for the social, behavioural, educational, and economic sciences.

Who does the RatSWD represent?

The RatSWD represents the interests of researchers in the fields of social, behavioural, educational, and economic sciences. It is committed to improving access to research data and the research data infrastructure.

I have data, where can I go with it?

All data is special and valuable. The repositories of KonsortSWD’s partners and many research data centres accept and curate research data.
