Research Data Management

Digital research data, their organisation, reusability and archiving are becoming increasingly important in the planning, implementation and publication of research projects in all scientific disciplines: Research data management is therefore an important aspect in all project steps from application planning, implementation of a research project and publications to the subsequent use of the resulting research data.

Research data management at the University of Erfurt, is part of the competence network Research Data Management at Thuringian universities, embedded in state and national developments and enables coordination on international trends in the field of research data management.

Digital Humanities

The University of Erfurt is pursuing the goal of stimulating and supporting the development of research in the humanities and cultural sciences, which is increasingly digitally supported.

Digital methods enable faster, more effective and more precise results. They can be used to carry out research questions that would not be possible without digital methods. This opens up new questions, but also new methodological considerations.

Digital Humanities is thus specifically about the development, application and systematic research of digital techniques, methods and media to answer questions in the humanities. Related terms are eHumanities (= enhanced Humanities), digital humanities, Computing in the Humanities.
