Evidence-based medicine is subject to specific requirements e. g. in the area of ethics, data protection (special categories of personal data) and other regulatory requirements (e.g. the German drug and medicinal product laws or the Medical Device Regulation). Therefore, we offer dedicated counsel and data management services geared toward meeting these regulations for all members of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.

The University of Oldenburg is currently in the process of preparing the introduction of a Current Research Information System (CRIS) designed to create a reliable central data and information base for mapping the university's research activities. To achieve this, it will bring together pieces of information from various sources (e.g. on projects, publications, or events) and connect them both to each other and to individuals and organisational units.
The CRIS will increase the quantity of the information on the university's research activities while also improving its quality. Various interest groups stand to benefit from the CRIS - researchers can use it as a central tool for presenting their research, e.g. by creating publication lists and scientific CVs for websites, but the CRIS can also be used to streamline or establish workflows between science and administration.
The aim is to incorporate existing data into the future research information system as effectively as possible, to reduce the number of multiple entries and coordination processes, and to enable multiple uses.
