Hessian Open Science Portals (HeOSP)

Brief description

The ULB Darmstadt is involved in the project “Hessian Open Science Portals” (HeOSP). The goal is to create open access to information about Hessian university research, to develop a mission statement for Open Science and to expand existing Current Research Information Systems (CRIS) into central Open Science Portals and information systems from science for science and society. The Directorate VI – Research Services & Technology Transfer is in charge of this project at the TU Darmstadt. The overall project is coordinated by the Philipps-Universität Marburg; other participating universities are the Goethe-Universität Frankfurt and the Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen.

A component of a CRIS is also data on the research infrastructure. This information is not yet systematically recorded at the TU. Therefore, the ULB will establish a TU-wide online database for the research infrastructure (RI-DB). The goals of the RI-DB are primarily:

  • Provide better access to state-of-the-art research equipment and outstanding methodological expertise
  • Make available equipment and methods visible and accessible in a regulated manner across disciplines and departments
  • Promote interdisciplinary exchange and strengthen the culture of collaboration, including on resource issues
  • Enable effective resource management. This includes easy location, regulated access, optimized collaborative use, and secure monitoring of available resources
