At present, numerous people within the university are concerned with research data management. Many work in scientific projects, others in the support facilities or in the administration. Events in this category are meant to boost experience exchange. They also offer persons engaged in data management related activities an opportunity to get to know each other.

  • Second half of April 2020: University-internal experience exchange: RDM in institutes and joint projects

    Villa Simon (Dezernat 4), Brühlstraße 27, room SR -102 (UG)

    The experience exchange takes place every six month, approximately. The event targets the personell reponsible for data management in joint projects or institutes. It offers participants an opportunity to call attention to practice examples, to debate unresolved issues and perhaps to even trigger cooperation across projects.


    Please note: The event is held in German. To see the agenda and related documents please switch to the German version of this webpage.


Introductory courses are designed for persons with little prior knowledge regarding research data management and usually take place at least once per semenstre. Some courses are offered directly by the research data support team and others via the professional development programme of Leibniz University Hannover, via the training programme of the graduate school or via the inter-university course programme.


In these courses specific aspects of research data management are regarded in detail. In each new course the theme will change. Participants are expected to already have some basic knowledge.
