Research infrastructure and support services

In order for good research to flourish, it requires a solid basis of support, advice and infrastructure that researchers can rely upon in order to make the best success of their research projects. To this end, Bielefeld University engages with important topics such as third-party funding, research data management and the promotion of young researchers, as well as providing advice on aspects of research ethics and science communication.

Bielefeld University regards the support of young researchers as a strategically important and long-term task, which it promotes through a broad range of advisory and career development opportunities for talented researchers.
