Physical Sciences in NFDI

Physical Sciences in NFDI is a collaboration between the NFDI consortia DAPHNE4NFDI, FAIRmat, MaRDI, NFDI-MatWerk, NFDI4Cat, NFDI4Chem and PUNCH4NFDI. We unite experts on a broad spectrum of topics in physics, chemistry, mathematics and informatics.

In our workshops and talks we invite leading scientists to showcase good (data) practices to an international, interdisciplinary audience and foster discussions on various topics around research data management.
