RWTH has had its Research Data Management Team, RDM Team for short, since 2016. The team is composed of experts from the University Library and the IT Center and its members work closely with Department 4.0 – Research, part of the Central University Administration.

The RDM team is responsible for considering, pooling, and reviewing the needs of researchers and research funders. From this, they develop central offers of infrastructure, processes, and continuing education measures for the University. In addition, the RDM team strives to sustainably anchor RDM in the daily research routine of researchers at RWTH. The RDM team is available as a single point of contact for all topics relating to RDM and NFDI via the IT Service Desk.
