Newly developed technologies and methods for the purpose of controlling uncertainty in technical systems must be proven and validated against reliable experimental studies. The availability of descriptive metadata is mandatory to enable long term usability and sharing of such experimental research data. This article introduces a concept for a software independent solution for managing data in collaborative research environments. The proposed approach leverages the advantages of capturing

The article presents a prototype implementation of the proposed approach and discusses its application on the demonstrator test rig of a collaborative research centre in the field of mechanical engineering.
