Expert interviews with funding institutions

During the first DDP workshop with external experts in January 2020, members of the DDP project team had interviewed researchers and research data management officers about their requirements for the development of domain data protocols for empirical educational research. As continuation of this assessment, the project team conducted interviews with staff from German funding institutions in October and November of this year.

The interviews began with an introduction of the DDP concept. Subsequently, research data management in general was addressed, as well as requirements of the funding institutions in particular. In the following discussion on the DDPs, the interviewees pointed out possible elements that, in their experience, could be helpful for researchers, e.g. templates for consent forms. During the interviews, the DDP team received a number of helpful comments for the further development of the DDPs.
