The participation of the research community and the integration of users are the basis for the activities of KonsortSWD. Each field of action within KonsortSWD therefore explicitly establishes a connection to the scientific community and involves it in the development and implementation of its services and activities. KonsortSWD considers the structural, i.e., organisational involvement of the research community to be inseparably linked to its claim and mission to improve research data management.
Among the disciplines represented by KonsortSWD there are those that are characterised by a grown and rich culture of data exchange. However, there are also other communities within the same disciplines that follow different research data paradigms. KonsortSWD aligns its services to the needs of all these communities.
