The Nationale Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI)

Disciplinary consortia and their contact persons at LUH

The NFDI is a programme designed to establish and develop services, organisations and infrastructures that support the handling of research data. It is jointly funded by the federal government and the state governments until 2028, for the time being. The NFDI consists of disciplinary consortia incorporating both, researchers and infrastructure providers. They are expected to assess and eventually meet the needs and requirements of the respective disciplines by providing suitable services. The goal is a gradual harmonisation of methods and standards as well as the integration of distributed infrastructures, first within each discipline, but eventually also on an interdisciplinary level.

The cross-consortia sections

Many issues and challenges affect all or at least most disciplines. They are hence worked on in so-called sections, which are working groups composed of members from different consortia. Their are currently four such sections and each already presented a concept paper (in German with english abstracts):

Representation of LUH in the Association German National Research Data Infrastructure

The Association German National Research Data Infrastructure was founded jointly by the federal government and the state governments in October 2020. Its purpose is establishing and developing an overarching research data management in Germany. Many German research institutions have since joined the association, including Leibniz University Hannover. It is represented in the member assembly by its chief information officer.
