Research Data Life-Cycle Management (DLCM)

Aim of the project

Creation of sustainable and concrete solutions at national level for the management of research data throughout the entire lifecycle.

Description of the project

The main goal of the project is to create sustainable and concrete solutions at national level for data management throughout the entire lifecycle of research data (Research Data Life-Cycle Management). The challenges range from the efficient processing and storage of large amounts of data and the prompt documentation of connections and dependencies all the way to the publication and long-term archiving of relevant data. Not only does this require effective technical solutions, but also clear and comprehensible standards for best practices.

Synergies and context

The project is conducted within the programme "Scientific Information: Access, Processing and Safeguarding" (P-02) (external link) of swissuniversities and the Swiss University Conference (SUC).

Cooperation partners

The project is headed by Dr Pierre-Yves Burgi (Université de Genève). His deputy is Dr Bernd Rinn, Head of the Department of Scientific IT Services of ETH Zurich's IT Services.
