Measures to Increase the Efficiency of the Research Data Centre of the DZHW in the Areas of Data Ingest, User Requests and Communication

Start of the project: 01-Jun-2017 - End of the project: 31-May-2019

The project “Measures to increase the efficiency of the rdc.DZHW in the areas of data ingest, user requests and communications” is a sub-project of the Research Data Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies of the DZHW (rdc.DZHW), funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The project aims to optimize and expand existing processes of the Research Data Centre, focusing on the following areas:

  • Development of software aided process-related survey documentation (exemplified through future surveys of the DZHW, e.g. Student Life Cycle, National Academics Panel Study (NACAPS))
  • Standardisation of processing procedures and documentation of DZHW surveys
  • Setting up a service portal for efficient processing of data use requests
  • Concept development for public relations at the rdc.DZHW as well as coping strategies concerning temporary additional expenditure in the public relations area during the initial phase of the rdc.DZHW (e.g. participation in international conferences, conceptualisation of user surveys)
  • Concept development concerning the ingest of external surveys
  • Concept development for user training courses and implementation of an exemplary user training course
  • Concept development for user conferences and implementation of an exemplary user conference
