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:
- Univ.-Prof. Dr. Jakob Beetz (RWTH Aachen Universität, Fakultät Architektur, Fachgebiet Computational Design)
- Prof. Dr. Rainer Danielzyk (Leibniz Universität Hannover, Institut für Umweltplanung, Abteilung Raumordnung und Regionalentwicklung)
- Dr. Maria Effinger (Universitätsbibliothek Heidelberg, Zentrales Projektmanagement u.a. Fachinformationsdienste arthistoricum.net, Propylaeum)
- Junior-Prof. Dr. Norman Hack (TU Braunschweig, Fakultät Architektur, Bauingenieurwesen und Umweltwissenschaften, Institut für Tragwerksentwurf)
- Prof. Dr. Katharina Klemt-Albert, Institut für Baumanagement und Digitales Bauen (Leibniz Universität Hannover, Institut für Baumanagement und Digitales Bauen)
- Prof. Dr. Piotr Kuroczyński (Architekturinstitut der Hochschule Mainz)
- Dr.-Ing. Katja Piesker(DAI Berlin, Wissenschaftliche Direktorin & Leiterin des Architekturreferats)
- Akad. Rat Tobias Schwinn (Stuttgart Universität, Institute for Computational Design and Construction)
- Prof. Dr.-Ing. Oliver Tessmann (TU Darmstadt, Fachbereich Architektur, Fachgebiet Digital Design Unit)
- Dr. Sabine Weck (Institut für Landes- und Stadtentwicklungsforschung, Stellvertretende wissenschaftliche Institutsleitung)
Online survey on "Open Access and Research Data" launched
The public kick-off event of the FID BAUdigital – the specialised information service (FID) for the fields of civil engineering, architecture and urban studies – on 2 March 2020 was a success with 200 participants. The statements of the scientific advisory board and the presentation of the first use cases made the heterogeneity and complexity of construction clear. The participants used the opportunity to address their needs to the FID BAUdigital.
Take part: Online survey on the topic of "Open Access and Research Data"
The kick-off event also drew attention to the planned community survey on "Open Access and Research Data", which has now been launched. The survey is primarily aimed at researchers in the disciplines of civil engineering, architecture and urban studies, but also representatives from academia and industry are invited to participate. The aim of the survey is to determine, on a needs-oriented basis, which services and information offers are important for the subject community.
Answering the questionnaire takes about ten to 15 minutes and is anonymous. Participation is possible from now until 30 April 2021.

Scientific work in the digital world is barely conceivable without interdisciplinary networking. New digital methods and technologies in civil engineering, architecture and urbanism (BAU) are closely linked to complex digital models, processes and data of the research objects.
In this context, the specialised information service (FID) BAUdigital is being created - funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) - as a sustainable digital platform to support the scientific communities in terms of networking, research data exchange and publication.
The event is open to the public and registration is free of charge
