Information stand and presentation on Research Data Day - June 18, 2024

Researchers from all areas of qualitative empirical social research are cordially invited to the Research Data Day, which will take place in Bremen on June 18, 2024. This event is organized by the member institutions of the U Bremen Research Alliance and offers all researchers insights into best practices and current challenges in dealing with research data.
Various information stands, workshops and lectures on the topic of research data management will be offered on the campus of the University of Bremen (central area / boulevard) from 9 a.m. onwards. Participation in the Research Data Day is free of charge.

In this context, the Research Data Center (FDZ) Qualiservice will be represented with an information stand in the “Glaskasten” on the boulevard (opposite the SuUB) from 10 am to 3 pm. Here you can find out about the services offered by the FDZ Qualiservice and talk to us about the requirements for processing and archiving qualitative research data for secondary scientific use.

The FDZ Qualiservice archives qualitative social science research data from all disciplines and makes it available for scientific reuse in research and teaching.

There will also be a lecture on Sharing Qualitative Research Data with Qualiservice from 13:00 to 13:45 in the SuUB. This will inform you about the legal, methodological and ethical principles and challenges surrounding the processing of qualitative data types (e.g. interview transcripts, observation protocols, ethnographic materials, audiovisual data). In view of sensitive and personal content, qualitative data will not be made available online as “open data”, but will be contextualized by a study report and extensive metadata, which are accessible on the website Registration at

From 17:30, a public evening event will take place in the Haus der Wissenschaft (Sandstraße 4-5, city center), where data experts and representatives from industry and science (e.g. NFDI; ZBW; BIPS) will discuss the ethical and social implications of using research data under the motto “Using data responsibly - research data for society”. Limited number of places - registration required
