Services for researchers

The Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences supports its researchers throughout from the planning and application of a research project to its implementation and completion. Various resources are provided for this purpose.

The Service Centre Research and Transfer provides support for questions relating to externally funded research and transfer activities.

Within the framework of centralised research funding, both subject-specific and interdisciplinary research projects are funded within the university. Research structure funding is used to support research-related networking and the formation of focal research centres.
Please contact the head of the SFT with any questions you may have.

For researchers, direct access to information services (DE) and funding databases (DE) is offered centrally for enquiry on funding programmes, calls for proposals and deadlines.

Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences has been organising various meetings and conferences for many years. The conference office of University Communication (DE) is available for the organisation.

The Service Centre Research and Transfer supports networking with cooperation partners. If you have any questions about financial support for your conference, please contact the head of the SFT.

The Hochschule Darmstadt supports Open Access publishing. Information is available directly from the library of the Hochschule Darmstadt. As part of the EUT+ Alliance, all members of the participating institutions also have access to the EUT+ Academic Press, an own university publishing house, where they can read and publish free of charge.

The library of the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences operates the repository h_docs (DE), on which members of the university can publish academically. Under the umbrella of OpenAire, the repository is also part of the shared repository of all EUt+ partners. In addition, research data can be archived and published using the cooperative HeFDI service TUdatalib. Further information is available directly from the library.

The University of Applied Sciences Darmstadt is the first German HAW member of the ORCID DE consortium since 2019 and supports the use of these IDs for the allocation of publications. The use of an ORCID provides a permanent digital identifier that identifies researchers.
