Digital data has been an integral part of research processes for a long time. However, handling such research data in a sustainable manner presents challenges at a technical, organisational and semantic level: large volumes of data, documenting of experiments and field tests, the legally compliant handling of sensitive data and options for the publication and subsequent use of data – to name but a few.
