The research platform is the public section of our research information system FIS (Forschungsinformationssystem) – a web-based databank which collects and stores all information regarding the university’s research activities and provides context information on the projects. After a long trial phase, the research information system went live on January 1, 2022 as specified by the service agreement from December 15, 2021. The system collects data, i.e. metainformation, on the following research activities:
Our goal is to:
The introduction of the research information system at our university benefits both our scientists and our research administration.
HeFIS is a cooperation of Hessian universities with a strong research focus who have joined forces to coordinate the collection, introduction, use and development of research information systems (FIS).
As part of the joint project, each university implements a customized research information system. At the same time, the coordination within the network is meant to create synergies, for example by establishing a mutual basic data model.
HeFIS is the first cooperation of research-based universities in Germany with the aim to professionally communicate research and development activities to the broader public.
