The Göttingen eResearch Alliance offers consultation on eResearch related aspects for research projects and research proposals for third-party funding. Since our start in 2014 we have consulted over 50 project proposals at the Göttingen Campus, mainly for DFG coordinated programmes, i.e. in particular Collaborative Research Centers, Research Training Groups and Research Units. In our consultation process we closely collaborate with the university's Research Office (Abteilung Forschung).
Our consultation topics cover all research data management aspects such as data storage, data exchange and data preservation as well as data formats and metadata standards up to data sharing options. Furthermore, we provide recommendations for publication strategies and Open Access, tools and services available at the Göttingen Campus, and also on funding requests for IT hardware and research instrumentation. We ensure that research proposals adhere to the Research Data Policy of Göttingen University as well as guidelines of funding bodies such as the DFG.
In addition to this, we actively support researchers in planning and conducting research data management and offer or mediate training workshops and educational material. If you have any questions on eResearch related issues in your research project or in your project proposal, please contact us.
