At the end of April, Dr. Benjamin Erb from the Institute of Distributed Systems officially received start-up funding for young researchers from the Ulm University Graduate & Professional Training Centre. The internal funding program supports researchers at the beginning of their researching career.
The funding will support the prototypical development of a novel digital research platform that will meet specific privacy requirements. The platform uses technical protection mechanisms to implement pre-defined empirical studies and to secure the study data collected in the process. This makes the platform suitable for psychology and other empirical disciplines - especially when highly sensitive and sensitive private data have to be collected, stored and processed as part of the study.
