Establishment of first sections
Possibility to comment on the section concepts
(Published on 10.08.2021) In several strategy workshops together with the consortia of the first round, four sections were identified. These will be prioritised and installed in NFDI:
- (Meta)data, Terminologies and Provenance
- Common Infrastructures
- Training & Education
- Ethical & Legal Aspects
The consortia developed concepts for these four sections. The Assembly of Consortia (Konsortialvesammlung) and the Director propose these for establishment, and the Scientific Senate (Wissenschaftlicher Senat) will approve them at its next meeting.
In order to make the concepts available to public at an early stage and to offer the opportunity for feedback, we would like to provide you with an overview of the abstracts in a shared document.
Click here to access the Google Doc. The document is open for commenting up to 31 August 2021 (inclusive).
The Directorate has the right to remove anonymous or inappropriate comments. In case of improper behaviour, the commenting function may also be closed earlier.
Industry Engagement: Speaker elected and section concept published
In its first official meeting on 5 May, the Section Industry Engagement elected Prof. Dr. Florian Stahl as speaker and Prof. Dr. Chris Eberl as deputy speaker.
In addition, the section concept was published on zenodo.
IAM4NFDI: Identity and access management starts path to NFDI-wide basic service
On 31 March, the consortia assembly of the NFDI Association unanimously approved the funding of the basic service application “Identity and Access Management for the German National Research Data Infrastructure (IAM4NFDI)” by the collaborative joint project Base4NFDI.
This is intended to create the conditions for users from different disciplines, consortia and research institutions to be able to register for services and use them.
New section Industry Engagement coordinates cooperation with industry
The NFDI sections are dedicated to topics that are relevant to all or several consortia. In October 2021, the first four sections already started their work. Now the fifth section, Industry Engagement (section-industry), is starting.
