The FBM offers its researchers a support service tailored to their needs.
PlaTec is the satellite at UNIL of the Data and Service Center for the Humanities (DaSCH), an institution of the Academy of Human and Social Sciences, for French-speaking Switzerland. DaSCH ensures the long-term accessibility and archiving of SHS research data as part of a digital infrastructure and service centre deployed at the national level.
PlaTec supports researchers in the management of their research data and databases. It provides researchers with the DaSCH infrastructure (Knora, Salsah, Sipi) and other services (supervision, support, evaluation, etc.).
FORS is the Swiss Centre of Competence in Social Sciences, hosted by UNIL (Geopolis). It produces data from national and international surveys. The centre also provides tools for information infrastructure and a consultation service for researchers.
FORS covers the entire research process for social science researchers with services ranging from conceptualizing the questionnaire to developing a report dedicated to presenting the results:
UNIL is currently working with FORS and UNIZH to develop a repository of thematic and generalist data to manage the research data produced at UNIL (SWISSUbase).
