Maintaining metadata, finding data – we make everything FAIR.

This field of action bundles the information technology expertise of the consortium partners in order to offer comprehensive services that promote the sustainability and FAIR conformity of the research data infrastructure. It provides tools for FAIR data exchange, helps to ensure and improve the FAIRness of (sensitive) data, and coordinates the standardisation of data and metadata to achieve interoperability between different data types and the academic disciplines represented by KonsortSWD. All digital services are developed according to user requirements and consider the data’s sensitive nature as well as the needs of the RDCs.
