Data Services

In close cooperation with the Zentralbibliothek Zürich and S3IT of the UZH, HBZ supports researchers of all disciplines in the handling of data: From writing workshops and individual advice to the provision of legal advice on copyright issues.


We advise you individually in the handling of your data. We give feedback on your data management plan or arrange specific contact points, e.g. regarding legal questions.
For advice on EU applications, please contact our OpenAIRE Helpdesk.


We offer regular courses to promote data literacy. You can also attend workshops on data management plans. The aim is to provide security, increase efficiency and successfully use and re-use data.
