The German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) is one of the leading research institutions and think tanks for global development and international development policy worldwide. The institute is based in the UN City of Bonn. DIE builds bridges between theory and practice and works within international research networks. The key to DIE’s success is its institutional independence, which is guaranteed by the Institute’s founding statute. Since its founding in 1964, the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) has based its work on the interplay between Research, Policy Advice and Training.

The Institute’s Postgraduate Training Programme is concentrated on courses dedicated to development-related themes and issues bound up with shaping the process of globalisation as well as with improving trainee communicative and social skills. The cornerstone of the Postgraduate Training Programme – field research carried out by small interdisciplinary groups in a developing country – serves to provide trainees with an opportunity to gain practical experience with what they have learned by participating in concrete policy advice-oriented research projects. Once they have completed the Postgraduate Training Programme, the graduates find career opportunities with development organisations in Germany and abroad.

In addition to the Postgraduate Training Programme, the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) offers young professionals from selected partner countries of Germany’s international cooperation the participation in the Global Governance School. The highly qualified participants from Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico and South Africa work in governments, Ministries, Universities, policy-orientated Think Tanks or research institutions. The Training and Dialogue Programme of the Global Governance School is the practice- and research-oriented component of the Managing Global Governance Programme, implemented jointly by the German Development Institute and GIZ. This unique exchange and learning opportunity supports the creation of a sustainable, equitable and effective global governance architecture.

The German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik is headed by Prof. Dr. Dirk Messner (Director). At present, the Institute has a staff of 110, more than two-thirds of whom are researchers.

Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC)

The core business of the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) is to conduct large-scale, policy-relevant, social-scientific projects for public-sector users, non-governmental organizations and international development agencies. The HSRC does this in partnership with researchers globally, but specifically in Africa. Not only their commitment to cutting-edge research which supports development nationally, in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) and in Africa, but also the dissemination of that research is evident.

As the national social science council of South Africa, the HSRC wishes to serve as a knowledge hub to bridge the gap between research, policy and action; thus increasing the impact of research. This is achieved through collaboration with key constituencies, including government, other research organizations, multinational agencies, universities, non-government organizations, and donor and development organizations.

IANUS - Research Data Repository for Archaeology & Classical Studies 

IANUS is a project funded by the DFG to establish a national research data centre for archaeology and classical studies in Germany. IANUS aims to respond to prospects and challenges arising from work with digital data and methods which increasingly shape archaeological research. 

It is planned to collect, to describe, to catalogue, to migrate and archive digital research data from archaeology, classical studies and other related disciplines and - as far as possible – to provide it freely available online. Thereby it is intended to improve the verification of research results in terms of good scientific practice, to enable a long-term data-reuse, to work against the impending loss of primary and secondary content and to facilitate exchanges of research outcome.

In addition, researchers and institutions are supported in the creation, description, processing, conservation and transmission of digital data. In case of existing national or international technically relevant archive systems and data storage, co-operation with these is intended.

Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies

The Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS) is one of the largest and most traditional non-university research institutes of its kind in Germany. It combines historical and economic expertise in interdisciplinary research foci. These are aligned in a transnational and comparative way. South East Europe and the area of the former Soviet Union are prioritized.

The long-term knowledge horizon of IOS research is pursued in the medium-term along three main topics, representing a productive perspective on the contrast between path dependence and change; in addition, the three themes highlight areas of high social and thus political relevance:

  • Governance between personalization and formalization
  • Dynamics of exchange (migration and trade)
  • Forms and relations of work during change.

At the IOS work (economic and social data), migration and biographical data are collected, processed and provided.

Institute for Educational Quality Improvement (IQB)

The Institute for Educational Quality Improvement (IQB) is a scientific institute, which supports the Federal States’ quality development and quality assurance in the school system. Educational standards that have been adopted by the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Länder in the Federal Republic (KMK) form the starting point and basis for this work. These educational standards define what skills pupils should have developed up to a certain point in their school career. The IQB’s main task is to regularly monitor to what extent German schools achieve these goals (Education monitoring). In addition, the IQB supports the Länder to implement the educational standards, which are to serve as the central framework for all actors in the education system (implementation). Furthermore, the IQB is one of the most important institutions in Germany actively participating in the area of empirical educational research (research).

The IQB is a registered association that bears the name "Institute for Educational Quality Improvement - Wissenschaftliche Einrichtung der Länder an der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin e.V." according to the statute and operates as a research institute at the Humboldt University Berlin.

Research Data Centre of the Halle Institute for Economic Research (FDZ-IWH)

The IWH-Research Data Centre provides external researchers with the opportunity to access different data sets collected by the IWH. Founded in 1992, the roots of the IWH lie in the empirical research on transition processes. Since 1993, the institute has been conducting regular company surveys as part of panel studies, which can be used to promptly describe development trends in the manufacturing and construction sectors and to analyse the causes of these developments. In addition to economic indicators, the surveys also collect data on structural features and behavioral dispositions during the transition from a planned economy towards a market economy. The FDI micro database contains survey data on multinational companies in post-transition regions. The way in which the data may be accessed (scientific use file, on-site use) depends on the data set. Signing a user data agreement is a requirement for data access.

Furthermore, the FDZ-IWH offers a number of additional services. These include, among others, consulting (potential) data-users in regard to supply and access of data, supporting researchers in their handling of complex data sets, clarification of data protection issues and setting up specific workplaces for guest scientists.

Further information can be found on the websites of the FDZ-IWH: IWH-FDZ.

Research Data Center of the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories (FDZ-LIfBi)

The LIfBi Research Data Center releases rich longitudinal data on competence development, educational processes, educational decisions, and returns to education in formal, nonformal, and informal contexts for empirical educational research. At the center of this research infrastructure lies the National Educational Panel Study (NEPS) providing information from six samples being surveyed at yearly intervals (newborns, children in Kindergarten, fifth graders, ninth graders, students in higher education, adults). These data are supplemented with context attributes collected from parents, child-care workers, and teachers, as well as heads and principals of educational institutions. Besides designing and carrying out NEPS, LIfBi is involved in the cooperative longitudinal study PIAAC-L (Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies) in Germany and in research projects with a regional focus, such as BiLO (“Bildungslandschaft Oberfanken” [Educational Landscape of Upper Franconia]).

All data are carefully edited, factually anonymized, and documented in a user-friendly way in two languages (German and English). They are available free of charge to the national and international scientific community in the form of Scientific Use Files. Signing a user data agreement is a requirement for data access. Furthermore, the FDZ-LIfBi offers comprehensive services—for example, user trainings, easy-to-use research support, as well as modern and flexible access to the data (download, remote, on-site).

The FDZ-LIfBi is accredited by the German Data Forum (RatSWD) and complies with their Criteria of the German Data Forum (RatSWD) for the Establishment of Research Data Infrastructure.

Further information and contact details can be found on the website: http://www.neps-data.de/.

PsychData makes certain that the data is in relevant information systems and manages data access. Information events, conference presentations and user consultation round out the services offered.

Due to the sensitive nature of psychological data, contracts are required for both data providers and data users. Research data is later anonymized if necessary. The data encompasses all areas of psychology with a special focus on datasets obtained from clinical, developmental, educational, gerontological as well as occupational/industrial and organizational psychology gathered through longitudinal studies, large-scale surveys and test developments. More information on the datasets can be found in German and English on the PsychData homepage including the latest information under "News".

The metadata is freely available and searchable on the Internet. Access to research data is strictly contractually regulated. Usage is restricted to trained, professional, scientific research and teaching. Once a contract has been agreed, the data and related code books will be sent on unalterable long-term storage optical disks compliant with all data storage regulations. The PsychData homepage contains information and updates on the legal conditions and data catalogue. A contract for data usage can be filled out directly online through the website.

Bielefeld University Library

Bielefeld University Library represents with its collection of about 2 million books and journals not only the central library of Bielefeld University which was founded in 1967, but also one of the most important general libraries of the whole region of East Westphalia-Lippe.

Since the end of 2013 Bielefeld University Library offers its faculties and institutions – as a complement to disciplinary inter-university providers – an infrastructure for the archiving and publication of research data. This connects to the central publication server of the University of Bielefeld (PUB). Thus, research data has a similar status such as book and magazine publications.

Personal and business-related interests and licensing aspects are adequately taken into account when publishing in the PUB. At the same time, the university encourages their researchers and scientists to link the data that is already published in discipline-specific research data archives (such as e. g. GESIS, Dryad) with PUB to achieve the maximum visibility of the research output within and outside the university.

World Values Survey Association

The World Values Survey (WVS) is a worldwide network of social scientists studying changing values and their impact on social and political life. The WVS is coordinated by a central body, the World Values Survey Association (WVSA). The WVSA carried out representative national surveys in more than 100 countries containing almost 90 percent of the world's population. These surveys show pervasive changes in what people want out of life and what they believe. In order to monitor these changes, the WVS has executed six waves of surveys, from 1981 to 2013.

The Zentrum für Literatur- und Kulturforschung (ZfL)

The Zentrum für Literatur- und Kulturforschung (ZfL) is a humanities institute for literary studies in interdisciplinary contexts that draws from a cultural studies framework. Its methods also engage with the structural transformations within historical-hermeneutic subject areas that have taken place in recent decades. In contrast to the study of literature at universities, predominantly organized by nationality, the ZfL fosters a broad concept of literature, but also uses interdisciplinary tools to fundamentally question the etiology of various literary concepts, their potential for the future, and the relationship between literature and other arts or cultural practices. This is done in the four research areas History of Theory, World Literature, Knowledge of Life, and Tools of the Trade and Thought-Styles. Literature remains a primary object of investigation in all areas, opening up new epistemological fields, new modes of knowledge, and new sets of questions in other disciplines. The overarching project explores the development of alternative descriptions of modernity and how they fit in to a broader historical scope. As a relatively small, independent institute, the ZfL sees itself as a vital contributor to national and international research communities, but also as a critical observer of an ever-changing academic landscape.

Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT)

The Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT) aims to provide a scientific basis for the protection and sustainable use of tropical coastal ecosystems.

The protection of these ecosystems requires interdisciplinary concepts that will meet the needs of the tropical countries. There is a lack of the necessary scientific information on these ecosystems in order to develop concepts concerning their structure, function, resilience to change, and how they interact with the adjacent marine and terrestrial systems. This is where the ZMT's activities come in. The overall objective of its research is to analyse tropical ecosystems in their complexity and to establish the necessary scientific base for the development of concepts for Integrated Coastal Zone Management.

Centre for Contemporary History (ZZF)

The Centre for Contemporary History (Zentrum für Zeithistorische Forschung – ZZF) is an interdisciplinary research institute based in Potsdam, Germany. The Centre’s focus is contemporary German and European history. It was founded in 1992 in the wake of the German unification process and has been an institute of the Leibniz Association since 2009.

The institute’s academic research is currently organized in five departments:

  • Communism and Society

  • Economic and Social Change during the Twentieth Century

  • Changing Concepts of the Political

  • Regimes of the Social Sphere: Mobilisation, Welfare State, and Rationalisation during the Twentieth Century

  • Contemporary History of Media and Information Societies

The ZZF places great value on sharing and mediating its topics and research results with an expert audience, as well as the transfer of knowledge with memorial centres and museums. With the Centre’s web portal Zeitgeschichte-online (Contemporary History online) the ZZF provides German-language specialist information on contemporary history on the internet.

Zeithistorische Studien (Contemporary Historical Studies) is the ZZF’s house journal, published since 1993. The Centre also publishes the electronic magazine  Zeithistorische Forschungen (Studies in Contemporary History). The journal is available in a free-of-charge online format and as a print edition. Starting in 2010, a new series was launched entitled Geschichte der Gegenwart (History of the Present). Additionally, since 2005 the spectre of publications of the ZZF was extended by an annual almanac ZeitRäume. The volumes contain lectures, essays and other pieces devoted to contemporary history which staff and guest researchers have addressed over the course of the year.

The ZZF's web portal Docupedia-Zeitgeschichte is a reference work designed for Internet use, covering key terminologies and concepts, research institutions as well as methods of contemporary research.
