Section S.3 coordinates and advises the management and the divisions of BAM on scientific issues regarding digitalization in all fields of research. Modern scientific experiments are characterised by a hitherto unknown wealth of data, so that according to empirical aspects, theory and simulation many fields of research are at a transition to a data driven science.

An interesting aspect in this context – also for BAM – concerns the integration and analysis of multimodal data (from different measuring equipment or entire sensor networks), whose temporal and spatial correlation hold a high information content.

BAM supports the transition to data driven science by two competence centers “modelling and simulation”, “data analysis” as well as by the section “eScience”.
