Research data centres (in alphabetical order)
Since their inception, the research data centres (RDCs) have played a pivotal role in the social, empirical and economic sciences and strengthened the international competitiveness of the German research landscape.
Researchers have a highly evolved and sustainable research infrastructure at their disposal, which is a result of independent initiatives from within the scientific community. A decentralised network of 42 data centres provides researchers with user-friendly and cost-efficient access to a wide range of relevant data.
All of the data centers have been accredited by the German Data Forum (RatSWD) according to uniform and transparent standards.
