(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.
Task Force Evaluation and Reporting publishes white paper “Dealing with BLV goals as a basis for structural evaluation”
The NFDI Task Force for Evaluation and Reporting (TFER) does preparatory work for the interim reports of the consortia and the structural evaluation of NFDI. Members of the Task Force have written the white paper “Dealing with BLV targets as a basis for structural evaluation”.
We would like to invite you to look behind the surface of the online world with us. Under the title “Behind the Click”, Dutch artist and researcher Julia Janssen will visually explore topics such as Artificial Intelligence, the bias of algorithms and data profiling. The public evening lecture will take place as part of the first Conference on Research Data Infrastructure (CoRDI) on 12 September at 7.30 pm in the KIT Audimax.
The development of the NFDI portfolio for basic services is progressing with two further projects. The Consortia Assembly (KV) of the NFDI Association decided in its meeting on 7 July to fund two basic service applications.
In a one-year initialisation phase, a service for the NFDI-wide provision of persistent identifiers (such as DOI) as well as a service to support the description of data through uniform terminologies will be funded.
