National research data infrastructure (NFDI)

The NFDI is intended to systematically make databases from science and research, which are often stored decentralized, project-based and temporarily, available to the German scientific system. The NFDI will be designed by users of research data and by infrastructure institutions that cooperate within and between consortia. The NFDI is supposed to set standards in data management and, as a digital, regionally distributed and networked knowledge repository, to sustainably secure and make use of research data.
