Introduction to NFDI4Earth
Convener: Hannes Thiemann
Thu, 11 Apr, 19:00–20:00
Room 0.15

The national research data infrastructure (NFDI) in Germany [1] aims to systematically manage scientific and research data, provide long-term data storage, backup and accessibility, and network the data both nationally and internationally. Within this framework, NFDI4Earth [2], an emerging consortium with many participating institutions, strives to serve researchers within Earth System Research. NFDI4Earth is aware that the objectives of NFDI and in particular NFDI4Earth can only be achieved on a consortia basis anchored in the broader scientific community.
During the splinter meeting, we would like to introduce NFDI4Earth to the scientific community. Aim is to create an awareness right from the beginning and initiate collaborations also beyond Germany’s borders.
