The project bwFDM-Communities establishes a direct contact to the scientific communities at the universities of Baden-Württemberg to record in detail the specific needs for data services, infrastructure and support in handling research data. The results of interviews of different research groups found the basis for a sustained development of expertise and know-how in research data management at all universities computing centres, libraries and other research institutions like Collaborative Research Centres in the state of Baden-Württemberg. This will allow to provide the scientific communities in the long-term with an according environment which enables them to accept the challenges of the digital knowledge competition. The project is funded by the Ministry for Science, Research and the Arts Baden-Württemberg.
