Information infrastructures provide science and research with systematically collected and formatted information such as texts, pictures, biosamples, audio recordings or crystal structures.
e-Infrastructures (also called „Computing, Data and Cloud Infrastructures“ enable researchers to address their scientific objectives by means of processes that require large data volumes and/or computing power.
Large-scale equipment and research platforms encompass complex measuring devices, specialist laboratories and equipment facilities. They deliver data and information to answer central research questions on the basis of empirical measurements.
Social research infrastructures
Social research infrastructures are meeting points for the world’s leading scientists to exchange ideas about the most recent developments in their field, initiate new projects and connect with users and young scientists.
