NFDI – National Research Data Infrastructure

Through the active participation of its members in currently eight of the nineteen 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!
