Knowledge Infrastructures Research Group

Knowledge Infrastructures are “robust networks of people, artifacts, and institutions that generate, share, and maintain specific knowledge about the human and natural worlds” (Edwards, 2010). Covering concepts, implementations and applications, the TIB Knowledge Infrastructures Research Group advances software artifacts in their ability to support researchers in the generation, sharing, and maintenance of scientific knowledge.
