Through the active participation of its members in currently nine of the twenty-seven nationwide projects for the establishment of a National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI), the U Bremen Research Alliance has the best prerequisites for implementing Research Data Management across disciplines and institutions, as well as in cooperation with other locations.
"Towards One NFDI": Local Networking Meeting of NFDI Consortia with Participation from Bremen
On May 20, 2022, the first networking meeting of the NFDI consortia in which institutions from Bremen are involved took place at Fraunhofer MEVIS in Bremen. For more than four hours, representatives of twelve of the 14 consortia of the 1st, 2nd and current application rounds with participation from Bremen exchanged information about their activities and possible cooperation, synergies and common challenges. The networking meeting was organized by NFDI4Biodiversity, NFDI4Health and the U Bremen Research Alliance. Here is an overview of the event.
We are looking forward to the next joint activities with you!
Projects of the first call:
NFDI4Biodiversity is a consortium under the umbrella of the National Research Data Infrastructure dedicated to the collaborative use of biodiversity and environmental data.
University of Bremen / MARUM, Speaker
Further institutions: AWI, GFBio e.V., ZMT
Prof. Dr. Frank Oliver Glöckner (Speaker; AWI, PANGAEA, University of Bremen / MARUM)
NFDI4Health - the National Research Data Infrastructure for Personal Health Data - focuses on data generated in clinical, epidemiological and public health studies. The collection and analysis of these data on health and disease status and important factors influencing it are an essential component for the development of new therapies, comprehensive care approaches and preventive measures of a modern healthcare system.
Further institutions: MEVIS, University of Bremen
Prof. Dr. Iris Pigeot (Co-Speaker; BIPS)
As part of the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI), the consortium aims to develop, disseminate, standardize, and provide methods and services to make engineering research data FAIR.
Prof. Dr. Frank Kirchner und Dr. Florian Cordes (Participants; DFKI)
KonsortSWD builds up services for research with data in the social, behavioral, educational, and economic sciences as part of the NFDI.
University of Bremen, Co-Speaker
Prof. Dr. Betina Hollstein (Co-Speaker; University of Bremen / SOCIUM / QUALISERVICE)
Projects of the second call:
The vision of NFDI4DataScience (NFDI4DS) is to support all steps of the complex and interdisciplinary research data lifecycle, including collecting / creating, processing, analyzing, publishing, archiving, and reusing resources in the fields of Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.
Prof. Dr. Frank Oliver Glöckner (Participant; AWI, PANGAEA, University of Bremen / MARUM)
NFDI4Earth is focused on the digital needs of Earth System Science. NFDI4Earth is a community-driven process designed to provide researchers with FAIR, coherent, and open access to all relevant Earth System Data, innovative Research Data Management, and Data Science methodologies.
Further institutions: University of Bremen / MARUM
Prof. Dr. Stephan Frickenhaus (Co-Speaker AWI) and Prof. Dr. Michal Kucera (Participant; University of Bremen / MARUM)
National Research Data Infrastructure for Materials Science & Engineering: To implement a materials-specific data space, the NFDI-MatWerk aims to reduce technological barriers in MSE by developing generic software tools and an overarching data and information infrastructure.
Dr. Matthias Steinbacher (Participant; IWT) and Dr. Norbert Riefler (WT)
The vision of the NFDI4Microbiota Consortium is that researchers in Microbiology (including Bacteriology, Virology, Protistology, Mycology, and Parasitology) can easily transform research data into a deep understanding of microbial species and their interactions at the molecular level. The mission of the NFDI4Microbiota Consortium is to be the central hub in Germany for supporting the Microbiology community with access to data, analytical services, data / metadata standards, and training.
Prof. Dr. Rudolf Amann (Participant; MPIMM)
Project of the third call:
NFDI4Memory brings together partners united by a common set of interests, needs, and aims related to the distinct challenges faced by those disciplines that use historical methods or that rely on data requiring historical contextualization.
Prof. Dr. Sebastian Vehlken (Participant; DSM)
