Research Infrastructures: in the service of science

Top scientists and researchers rely on high-quality scientific infrastructures. These include information infrastructures to manage all kinds of content (data, objects, media), research-based services, resources such as data or archive collections, and social infrastructures, such as conference and meeting centres. Numerous Leibniz institutions specialise entirely or partially in providing such scientific infrastructures.

Numerous institutions in the Leibniz Association maintain archives with important and fascinating collections. The spectrum of archived items ranges from manuscripts and photographs through technical drawings and historical maps to software programmes and merchandising articles. The major tasks of the archives are to preserve these valuable sources of living cultural history and to make them available for research. The archives are also always looking to track down more collectible items.
