Information Infrastructure serves central research related services at SWP. Our task is to enable the researchers to concentrate on their central responsibility – which is their research and consultation work.
Our staff are integrated directly into the SWP research divisions and project groups, where they provide collaborative support with professional and digital expertise to the research and quality management processes. Information Infrastructure is divided into the two units Information Services and Digital Library. Information Services includes the Monitoring and Research, Data and Statistics, and Fact Check teams; Digital Library includes the Library and Publication Services teams.
SWP also coordinates the German Information Network for International Relations and Area Studies (FIV), which provides information infrastructure services at the national level.
