(Published on 05.11.2021) At the beginning of October, the first four sections were established in the association. In the meantime, all of them have published their section concepts.
You can find all four concepts on our zenodo community page:
- (Meta)daten, Terminologien und Provenienz (section-metadata)
- Common Infrastructures (section-infra)
- Training & Education (section-edutrain)
- Ethical, Legal & Social Aspects (section-ELSA)
The four cross-cutting topics will be addressed across the boundaries of the consortia. Representatives of different consortia are active in each section. Through close cooperation, synergy effects can be exploited.
NFDI offered its own Satellite Event at the Joint Conference of Digital Libraries (JCDL) 2022 on 23 June. A total of five groups from different consortia organised workshops on the topic of research data management. The event was rounded off by a panel discussion on “Everything FAIR and Open? Restrictions on data publications” and a keynote speech by NFDI Director Prof. Dr. York Sure-Vetter.
The European Commission has presented a draft implementing regulation regarding the availability of public datasets. As part of a feedback process, the sections Ethical, Legal & Social Aspects (ELSA), Common Infrastructures (infra) and (Meta)data, Terminologies and Provenance (meta) commented on the EU draft. The statement is the first that several sections have jointly drafted.
We invite you to the virtual NFDI Satellite Event at the Joint Conference of Digital Libraries (JCDL) 2022 on 23 June 2022.
The JCDL 2022 will bring together researchers and practitioners from the research data and the digital libraries communities. Different consortia give an insight into their work and show challenges and solutions.
