INF - Research Data Management and Integrative Statistical Analysis

Building on established structures and reliable workflows from the first phase, INF further develops the concept of a comprehensive research service and embedded support unit. INF provides integrative support for the complete life cycle of research data ranging from data management strategies to the provision of a sustainable technical research infrastructure up to research enhancement. INF facilitates the integrative statistical analysis of the research data collected in the CRC 990 with courses and consulting as well as development of statistical tools and methods. Integrated in the scientific projects of the CRC, INF seeks to increase the data quality and its durability, to foster the sharing and reuse of datasets, and to advance the analysis and synthesis of the collected research data. The core components are a modular research infrastructure including the information system, an overarching data management and curation service concept, and broad statistical expertise offering consultancy, methods development and analysis.
