(Published on 28.02.2023) Seven further consortia and Base4NFDI will be included in the federal and state funding of NFDI from March. This was decided by the Joint Science Conference (GWK) in November. The GWK thereby followed the funding recommendation of the German Research Foundation (DFG).
We are very pleased that the NFDI network continues to grow and welcome:
- Base4NFDI: Basic services for NFDI
- FAIRagro: FAIR Data Infrastructure for Agrosystems
- NFDI4BIOIMAGE: National research data infrastructure for microscopy and bioimage analysis
- NFDI4Energy: National Research Data Infrastructure for Interdisciplinary Energy System Research
- NFDI4Immuno: National Research Data Infrastructure for Immunology
- NFDI4Memory: The Consortium for the Historically Oriented Humanities
- NFDI4Objects: Research Data Infrastructure for the Material Remains of Human History
- NFDIxCS: National Research Data Infrastructure for and with Computer Science
New section Industry Engagement coordinates cooperation with industry
The NFDI sections are dedicated to topics that are relevant to all or several consortia. In October 2021, the first four sections already started their work. Now the fifth section, Industry Engagement (section-industry), is starting.
Task Force Evaluation and Reporting publishes white paper as basis for interim reports of the consortia
The NFDI Task Force for Evaluation and Reporting (formerly the Task Force Monitoring) is working on the preparation of the interim reports of the consortia and the structural evaluation of NFDI. For this purpose, members of the task force wrote the white paper “Interim Report Reference”. The paper creates a basis for the consortia’s interim reports to the German Research Foundation (DFG) through jointly agreed definitions of cross-consortium topics.
Conference on Research Data Infrastructure (CoRDI): Call for Papers published
Research data form the basis for knowledge and innovation throughout all scientific disciplines. They play a fundamental role in the progress of our society. The key to using these data treasures is an effective infrastructure. With the first edition of the Conference on Research Data Infrastructure from 12 to 14 September 2023, the Association German National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) is initiating a conference that will focus on establishing interdisciplinary research data management (RDM). The Call for Papers is online now.
