RDC is the base for empirical and computer-based (numerical)
theoretical research at CRC 649. It supplies information on research results,
events and provides access to data and network services to all
participating researchers. The goal is to establish a communication network
concentrated on the empirical research of risk and economics in order to enable
researchers to exchange data whilst being located at different places.
