In large-scale collaborative research projects, be it national or cross national data collections, each project phase - study planning, fieldwork, data processing and documentation, and data depositing - require a careful data management and a good coordination among different teams. The web-based data management portal will provide a virtual collaborative work space for researcher teams and different stakeholders of projects. By including modularised management tools, the platform will support research projects according to their requirements, allowing an easy, structured, time saving, and secure communication, workflow and data transfer, no matter in which phase of research life cycle the project is. We will present the final concept of this infrastructure with fully fledged user cases, which was developed based on the evaluation of a) practices in existing data management portals (EVS, ISSP, ESS), b) researcher needs (European Election Study, Eurofund), c) and the recommendations we worked out together with the project managers and principal investigators.
