Task Force Evaluation and Reporting publishes white paper “Dealing with BLV goals as a basis for structural evaluation”
The NFDI Task Force for Evaluation and Reporting (TFER) does preparatory work for the interim reports of the consortia and the structural evaluation of NFDI. Members of the Task Force have written the white paper “Dealing with BLV targets as a basis for structural evaluation”.
The development of the NFDI portfolio for basic services is progressing with two further projects. The Consortia Assembly (KV) of the NFDI Association decided in its meeting on 7 July to fund two basic service applications.
In a one-year initialisation phase, a service for the NFDI-wide provision of persistent identifiers (such as DOI) as well as a service to support the description of data through uniform terminologies will be funded.
Registration for the first Conference on Research Data Infrastructure (CoRDI) is now open. We look forward to welcoming you to Karlsruhe from 12 to 14 September 2023.
