(Published on 10.11.2021) We congratulate Prof. Vivien Petras, PhD, Prof. Dr. Dörte Schmidt and Dr. Sonja Schimmler on their new function.
The Board of Trustees is the administrative-strategic control organ of the association. Among other things, it monitors the activities of the Directorate, votes on the admission or exclusion of members of the association, appoints the Directorate and the Scientific Senate and must give its approval to the rules of procedure of the other bodies. The Board of Trustees is composed of three members each from the Federal Government (Dr. Stefan Stupp, Stephan Bodmann, Andrea Herdegen), the federal states (Dr. Simone Schwanitz, Rüdiger Eichel, Dr. Carola Zimmermann) and from the scientific community (see above). Further information can be found in the association’s statutes.
In addition to the election of the three members of the Board of Trustees, the discharge of the Executive Board for the financial year 2020 was decided. Furthermore, Director Prof. Dr. York Sure-Vetter reported on the current status of the association’s structure and presented a positive balance of the first year of the association.
The next General Assembly is expected to take place in autumn/winter 2022.

The directorate of the German National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) e.V. association will be funded by the federal and state governments with a sum of 17.5 million euros from 2022 to 2028. The decision on funding was made by the Joint Science Conference (GWK) at its meeting on 22 October.
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.
