Network Research Data Education (Pilot project) Securing and Using Further the Data from the BMBF Framework Programme for Empirical Educational Research

DIPF, GESIS and IQB will collaborate in developing strategies for saving and re-using research data from the Framework Programme for the Promotion of Empirical Educational Research. The project targets the permanent storage of research data and enablement of data re-usage. Data will be stored in the research data centers hosted by DIPF, GESIS and IQB and indexed in a central reference system. It will be described by metadata in a web portal with search and browsing facilities. Together with the projects responsible for the original studies, the partners further aim to develop measures for a reliable re-usage of data.

In cooperation with:

  • German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF)
  • Leibniz Institute for the Social Sciences (GESIS)
  • Institute for Educational Quality Improvement (IQB)

Project management: 

  • Doris Bambey (DIPF)
  • Reiner Mauer (GESIS)
