Research infrastructure refers to large-scale equipment and multi-user facilities, for example, in the area of light microscopy or mass spectrometry. It also refers to supercomputing centers, scientific collections, data archives, and libraries. In their various ways, they all play a major role in the development of knowledge and technology and contribute to the entire spectrum of scientific and scholarly endeavor.
Research infrastructure is key to excellent research at Universität Hamburg. First-rate infrastructure provision should be effective and conserve resources. To these ends, Universität Hamburg is strengthening its commitment to establish core facility platforms and further develop its collections and libraries.
- core facility platforms: e.g., core facilities at the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf
- large core facilities: e.g., cryo-electron microscope facility at the CSSB
- IT infrastructure: Sustainable Research Data Management, Regional Computing Center
