Qualification Goals

In this module, students engage in intensive study of specific solutions to the management of research data in the humanities and social sciences. This engagement takes place in small groups at larger research projects and institutions (e.g., MCDCI's partner institutions), each of which stores, archives, and processes different types of research data.

After completing the module, students will be able to develop concrete solutions for the management of specific research data and to implement them technically. They will be able to apply necessary data transformations and present data standards, especially also for meta and norm data. They can outline the tasks of data management for concrete use cases along the data life cycle. Students will also be able to design and document data management plans for concrete scientific or science-related contexts.
