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 talk series we invite leading scientists to showcase good data practices to an international, interdisciplinary audience.
