Every week leading up to Christmas we are hosting a giveaway for a candy-filled NFDI mug on our LinkedIn and Mastodon. The first round starts on the 1st of December.
In the third Base4NFDI call for proposals, the IAM4NFDI application for funding as a basic service was approved by the NFDI Consortia Assembly for a two-year integration phase. IAM4NFDI is thus the first service to enter the second phase after its initialisation phase.
The International Data Week takes place from 23 to 26 October in Salzburg. NFDI will present a panel discussion at the event and will be represented at the poster session.
