The Alliance for Research Data Management was founded in January 2013 by KIT, University of Cologne and Gesellschaft für wissenschaftliche Datenverarbeitung in Göttingen (GWDG) as an association across institutions and scientific disciplines. The founders combine their research competences to protect and to preserve the most important and valuable research data. Logo

The Alliance pursues the objectives:

  • Collaborative research and development to provide new technologies for long-term research data preservation and distributed data management
  • Provisioning of a distributed data vault in which the data is replicated to all three locations to ensure the preservation even in case of demolition of a local infrastructure, e.g. by fire or natural disaster.
  • Establishment of joint competences in software development for research data management.
  • Consulting and training.
