Digital Transformation of Research (DiTraRe) – Leibniz ScienceCampus Karlsruhe
Research results are increasingly being shaped by digitalisation processes - this applies both to research methods and to their communication in science and society. At the Leibniz ScienceCampus "Digital Transformation of Research" (DiTraRe), we are investigating the effects and potential of the increasing digitalisation of scientific work.
In four different research clusters, we investigate approaches based on use cases from different disciplines, and develop concrete solutions, which are then generalised together. The "Protected Data Spaces" cluster is dedicated to the handling of sensitive data in sports science. "Smart Data Acquisition" deals with intelligent data acquisition using the example of "smart laboratories" in chemistry. The "AI-based Knowledge Realms" cluster is researching the effects of artificial intelligence in biomedical engineering. We are furthermore investigating the influence of new forms of publications based on large amounts of data using the example of climate research in the "Publication Cultures" cluster. At a meta-level, we reflect on the effects of digitalisation on the security of scientific work as well as the changed perception within and outside the scientific system.
