(Published on 24.03.2023) The NFDI sections are dedicated to topics that are relevant to all or several consortia. Common cross-cutting topics are tackled across the boundaries of the consortia and the various disciplines. In October 2021, the first four sections have already started their work. Now the fifth section, Industry Engagement (section-industry), is starting. Its establishment in the association was approved by the Scientific Senate on 22 March 2023.

The overarching goal of the Industry Engagement section is to coordinate cooperation with industry and thereby create more value for society. Just like in science, industry continuously collects data and works with methods and standards that are of great importance for several scientific disciplines. On the other hand, science also has data and methodological competences that are very important for industry.


More information on the Industry Engagement Section will be available here soon.
