Research Data Service of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity

We support researchers concerning all re­search data handling questions.

The Service Team Research Data Management (RDM) of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity supports researchers of all departments and subject cultures in the sustainable and comprehensible handling of re­search data.

You can contact us via our central e-mail address.

The management of re­search data can confront researchers with great challenges: Growing volumes of data, due to increasing digitalization of re­search processes in all disciplines, increase the demands on management and data protection. Research data and software code must be kept available and traceable for at least 10 years; likewise, data is increasingly shared for re-use or published in separate data publications.

You can meet these requirements and challenges by applying the concepts of re­search data management. We give support in the development and implementation of RDM strategies to make your re­search data findable, understandable, and usable for at least 10 years according to the principles of re­search data management and good scientific practice at TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity.

We support you with:

  • The creation of data management plans
  • The re-use of re­search data
  • The organization and structuring of re­search data
  • Secure storage and archiving
  • The documentation of re­search data through metadata and electronic lab books
  • The publication of re­search data

In addition to individual RDM advice, we also offer train­ing courses for chairs and institutes in which we convey the concepts of the RDM. If you are interested, please contact us.

The following tools are available:

  • Research data storageinfra­structure for the storage and archiving of re­search data
  • RDMO – collaboratively create and update data management plans. For access to RDMO please contact us.
  • B2DROP – cloud solution for science, enables sharing of re­search data
  • Sciebo – NRW cloud solution for researchers to work collaboratively on documents and exchange re­search data
  • Confluence – collaborative editing and versioning of documents. Organization of knowledge in a Wiki-like structure
  • Sciformation – electronic laboratory notebook and laboratory in­for­mation and management system

This is how to get in touch:

We made a central e-mail address available for you, so that there is no necessarity to think about the right contact person for your RDM related requests. The RDM Service Team will process your request immediately to find a customized solution for you.

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is “Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen” (closer to South Cam­pus), and from B 1 / A 40 “Dort­mund-Dorstfeld” (closer to North Cam­pus). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from North Cam­pus to South Cam­pus by car, there is the connection via Vo­gel­pothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at North Cam­pus and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.

TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity has its own train station (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät”). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dort­mund main station (“Dort­mund Hauptbahnhof”) and Düsseldorf main station via the “Düsseldorf Airport Train Station” (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 15 or 30 minutes). The uni­ver­si­ty is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duis­burg.

You can also take the bus or subway train from Dort­mund city to the uni­ver­si­ty: From Dort­mund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station “Stadtgarten”, usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At “Stadtgarten” you switch trains and get on line U42 towards “Hombruch”. Look out for the Station “An der Palmweide”. From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dort­mund main station to the stop “Dort­mund Kampstraße”. From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop “Dort­mund Wittener Straße”. Switch to bus line 447 and get off at “Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”.

The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dort­mund Airport (DTM) to Dort­mund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dort­mund Central Station, you can continue to the uni­ver­si­ty campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of in­ter­na­tio­nal flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the uni­ver­si­ty station.

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity. There are two stations on North Cam­pus. One (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”) is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the “Technologiepark” and (via South Cam­pus) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at North Cam­pus and offers a direct connection to South Cam­pus every five minutes.

The facilities of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity are spread over two campuses, the larger Cam­pus North and the smaller Cam­pus South. Additionally, some areas of the uni­ver­si­ty are located in the adjacent “Technologiepark”.
