TKFDM ("Thüringer Kompetenznetzwerk Forschungsdatenmanagement") is a contact partner for researchers of all Thuringian universities and colleges as regards research data management. This encompasses all aspects of data handling that emerge during research.

The TKFDM connects the Research Data Management Helpdesks of the Thuringian universities (University Erfurt, Technical University of Ilmenau, Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena, Bauhaus-University Weimar) and provides its services to all Thuringian colleges. We offer consulting and training regarding all aspects of the topic research data. Please contact us!

The competence network was founded in October 2018 and is funded by the Thuringian Ministry for Economy, Science and Digital Society (TMWWDG) as part of the Thuringian Strategy for the Digitalisation of Colleges for 2 years with a seed funding. Furthermore, the Thuringian universities contribute to the funding of the competence network.

The coordination office of the competence network is located at the Research Data Management Helpdesk at the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena.
