As a Partner in multiple projects and expert reports, BAW is both a consumer as well as a producer of large volumes of data and information. In this light, BAW has set the goal to provide access to metadata and data. Among other things, this supports the Freedom of Information Act.

With this goal in mind, Datenrepository-BAW has been developed as access for clients such as WSV, business partners in research and development projects, other research institutions and the general public. Datenrepository-BAW serves as quality-assured source of information and as a standardised access to data. It is conceived as a long-term and dedicated tool for research and access to data.

BAW also has an interest in the publication of its data and products. In the context of public discourse, the general public competent information. While scientific publications are only noticed within small circles, the impact of publicly available data should be promoted from all sides.
