FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz-Institut für Informationsinfrastruktur

FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure is one of the large non-academic infrastructure institutions in Germany and member of the Leibniz Association.

Our Profile

By “information infrastructure” we mean the entire set of content, technologies, methods, processes, and associated services that make it possible to generate, distribute, and maintain knowledge. The information infrastructure is part of the research infrastructure; it is becoming increasingly important in the course of the digital transformation of science.

With our activities, we contribute significantly to the information infrastructure: We provide information to researchers in science and industry worldwide. To this end, we develop very large volumes of patent and research information from a wide variety of sources. For precise research and intelligent analysis of these data, we develop and operate innovative information services and e-research solutions, e.g. for research data management and digital preservation. We advise our customers so that they can use our services competently and efficiently. (source: FIZ website)
