NFDI4Culture – Consortium for research data on material and immaterial cultural heritage

The NFDI4Culture consortium focuses on making very heterogeneous data from the entire field of culture and the related humanities retrievable and accessible across all disciplines and on continuously maintaining and preserving them in the long term. This includes 2D digital reproductions of paintings, photographs and drawings as well as digital 3D models of culturally and historically important buildings, monuments or audiovisual data of music, film and stage performances. Up to now, there has been no coordinated effort on a national level to secure, standardize and make available research data from the cultural heritage on a sustainable basis. NFDI4Culture aims to fill this gap.
