Research data management

The State and University Library Bremen offers information and advice on all aspects of research data management.

We support both in the search for suitable data for your research and in the search for suitable repositories for your research data, in the creation of data management plans and in all other relevant questions on this topic together with the University of Bremen and the Bremen University of Applied Sciences.
