Financial Data Repository (FiF)

Project Start:04/2018
Status:Ongoing
Researchers:Stephanie Collet, Horst Entorf, Dennis Gram, Lennart Kraft, Uwe Risch, Uwe Walz
Category: Data Center
Funded by:DFG

The project is funded by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG)

The aim of FiF is to set up a data repository to support and enhance research on finance. The project is a joint initiative with the Goethe University’s Library the Hessian Library Information System HeBIS. The new research data repository called FiF (“Forschungsdateninfrastruktur für Finanzdaten”) will be tailored to the needs of researchers in the field of finance as there is, in contrast to many other academic areas, no extensive and widely accessible research data infrastructure available. To fill this gap, the project partners will build a data sharing platform where research data are described and archived, so that researchers from Germany and abroad can identify and use them for their research. The repository will be compatible to existing structures and standards in the social sciences in order to allow for connectivity with respect to similar services worldwide.

The project combines SAFE’s expertise in financial research with the competencies of its partner institutions in the usage, storage and provision of scientific data. The funding is provided by the Scientific Library Services and Information Systems (LIS) program of DFG.
