The Digital Information and Research Infrastructure department (DIFI) researches and develops digital infrastructures and tools for international educational media research. It is also responsible for data management and the GEI’s IT infrastructure.
The department develops and implements digital products and provides support and maintenance services as well as being responsible for the long-term archival of GEI research findings and the results from digital humanities projects.
Working closely with researchers, the department processes internally and externally generated data and provides tools for further development and analysis. This enables new research questions to be generated and investigated. The long-term archival of research data in the GEI repository ensures that data is available for transfer activities and future academic use.
