Partners are the TU Berlin and FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure. The German Research Foundation finances the work over a period of three years.

Historical building research measures, draws, photographs, analyzes and interprets buildings and thus generates large amounts of research data. So far, there is no subject-specific research data infrastructure. is intended to remedy this. Designed for the German-speaking area, the platform is to be used on an interdisciplinary basis. Three modules are planned: baureka.index as a contact point for researching research data and for archiving, publishing and citability of research data. In the medium term, baureka.publications is planned as an online journal.
