(Published on 12.10.2022) Only two years have passed since the Association German National Research Data Infrastructure was founded. In these 24 months, stakeholders from all over Germany have been integrated by NFDI into a powerful network that promises many synergy effects.

In the past year, it has been possible to connect the different disciplines even more closely. Shared topics are now being advanced in four sections. In addition, the NFDI consortia have jointly submitted an application for the Base4NFDI basic service consortium.

Our second birthday is an occasion to celebrate what has been created thanks to our community.


Birthday giveaway

We are giving away up to three NFDI shirts via Twitter to celebrate our second anniversary. It’s easy to enter: describe in a tweet what NFDI means to you – with your own pictures or graphics if you like. Use the hashtag #2yearsNFDI and mention @NFDI_de in your tweet so we can find it.

A jury from the NFDI office will select three winners based on the design of their posts. We look forward to receiving your entries soon!
