The topic of research data has steadily gained momentum in recent years and is now widely perceived in everyday university life. Nevertheless, the process of establishing standards and best practices is far from complete. This guide attempts to provide stakeholders with current practical recommendations on options for action in the area of governance, rights management, and quality of research data, while at the same time contributing to the discussion on standardization of RDM processes and structures at the various levels moving forward.

The RDMG will discuss the recommendations together with the new Prorectorate for Research and make proposals for implementation on campus. To this end, it is already in contact with the individual faculties and stakeholders. The guiding questions already sent to stakeholders can also be found in the RDMG forum.
