The central objective of the RDM project is the long-term archiving of research data that enables both a reusing of research data as well as a later verification of research results.

Activities include workshops and discussion rounds (also with extrnal experts) on data management and the creation and implementation of data management plans for each project and/or individual researchers. In order to implement this project, the SFB 1199 has established the position of a data curator. This position is co-funded by the German Research Foundation and Leipzig University. The data curator supports the projects in the creation of data management plans and in their implementation. She organizes data storage and sharing during the project phase as well as long-term archiving of research data. The RDM project is closely connected to the activities of Thematic Group 5 which serves as a laboratory for collaborative data sharing and analysis. The RDM project is supported by the working group on research data (AG Forschungsdaten) of Leipzig University. The AG provides advice concerning the handling of research data in line with the FAIR principles.
