On 03 March 2020 the KickOff Workshop of the Helmholtz Metadata Collaboration Platform (HMC) took place in Berlin. At KIT, the Steinbuch Centre for Computing (SCC) and the Institute for Automation and Applied Informatics (IAI) are involved in the development of the platform.
HMC is an incubator of the new research field "Information & Data Science" of the Helmholtz Association.
In a Community-wide process, the Community's diverse expertise in this future-oriented field is being pooled, to create innovative, interdisciplinary networks for future topics and technologies. HMC in particular will be responsible for Research processes and tools that standardize, create and establish the handling of metadata.
In HMC, SCC-DEM is responsible for the development of metadata services, which technically implement the FAIR principles and will serve as the basis for the entire platform. The results will be integrated into the scientific research data management of the KIT and many international research projects directly.
