Over the next three years, University Library Braunschweig, University and State Library Darmstadt, the TIB - Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology and the Fraunhofer Information Centre for Planning and Building will set up a specialised information service (FID) for the fields of civil engineering, architecture and urban studies, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG).

FID BAUdigital, which started on 1.September 2020, supports a widely distributed and increasingly interdisciplinary research community, which deals with the development of digital design, planning and production methods in the building industry.

The FID BAUdigital focuses on

  • an innovative web service platform for research in the fields of civil engineering, architecture and urban studies,
  • the development of a BAUdigital thesaurus as linked open data,
  • the retro-digitisation of 2D and 3D objects as well as the development of a 3D retro-digitisation service,
  • supporting of the community by making available research data under FAIR data principles,
  • digital preservation of selected research data,
  • supporting of researchers regarding networking and sharing information,
  • the improvement of literature supply and publication services with an emphasis on Open Access.

 

The actions of the specialised information service BAUdigital are actively supported by a scientific advisory board. The members of the scientific advisory board are well-known scientists from the various professional communities in the field of building industry with a close connection to digitality, which reflects the wide range of our research fields. The scientific advisory board reviews the services of the FID in relation to community Needs and the state of research. At the same time it  not only plays a significant role regarding the FID's networking with these professional communities but also is a starting point to promote networking within these communities themselves. The highly professional members of our scientific advisory board could be introduced as follows:
