The Research Data Centre (FDZ) of the Federal Employment Agency at the Institute for Employment Research

The FDZ mediates between data producers and external users. We also control for compliance with data protection regulations.

New mode of remote data execution
FDZ will introduce a new web interface for remote data execution. With "JoSuA" (Job Submission Application), users will be able to submit jobs and access the corresponding results after data privacy control via a web interface. There will also be a preview mode that will make results available faster. For usage of the JoSuA platform, FDZ’s data use agreements need to include several new provisions As a consequence, the currently running contracts need to be revised. FDZ will successively contact users and will provide a revised data use agreement to be signed. Many thanks for your understanding!
