(Published on 05.05.2023) The section Industry Engagement elected Prof. Dr. Florian Stahl as speaker and Prof. Dr. Chris Eberl as deputy speaker in its first official meeting on 5 May.
In science as well as in industry, data is continuously being collected and work is being done with methods and standards. Several NFDI consortia already independently maintain specific and partner-dependent industry collaborations and data integration models. With the section Industry Engagement (section-ie), the cooperation with industry will be further systematically expanded in order to promote added benefits for society.
One of the goals is to create a joint exchange platform between industry and science for the identification and concretisation of overarching problem areas and approaches to solutions. The section concept can be found here: https://zenodo.org/record/7900079#.ZFT4nM7P02w

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.
Task Force Evaluation and Reporting publishes white paper as basis for interim reports of the consortia
The NFDI Task Force for Evaluation and Reporting (formerly the Task Force Monitoring) is working on the preparation of the interim reports of the consortia and the structural evaluation of NFDI. For this purpose, members of the task force wrote the white paper “Interim Report Reference”. The paper creates a basis for the consortia’s interim reports to the German Research Foundation (DFG) through jointly agreed definitions of cross-consortium topics.
