(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.
At the Consortia Assembly of the Association German National Research Data Infrastructure on 14 January, the consortia represented in it approved the publication of a collective statement on the topic of basic services without any dissenting votes. Read the published statement here.
As part of the Berlin Science Week, five young scientists contributed to the NFDI Science Slam and vividly explained what their work in the consortia looks like. You can now watch the talks in slam format on YouTube.
203 institutions are officially part of the NFDI Association as of this week. The Board of Trustees voted unanimously to accept further members at its meeting on Tuesday, 7 December.
