Support of NFD14Objects

The National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI)

The aim of the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) is the systematic management of scientific and research data, the long-term storage, safeguarding and availability, as well as the networking of these data at national and international level. The NFDI will bring together a variety of actors in a coordinated network of consortia that will fulfil the task of providing science-based data services for research communities.

NFDI4Objects addresses the infrastructural needs of researchers and practitioners with a multidisciplinary background whose work focuses on the material heritage of around three million years of human and environmental history. NFDI4Objects foresees the following seven areas of activity to meet the challenges and requirements:
TA1: Documentation
TA2: Collecting
TA3: Analytics and Experiments
TA4: Protecting
TA5: Storage, Access and Dissemination
TA6: Commons and Qualification
TA7: Support and Coordination

The consortium is revising the application for NFDI consortia of the German Research Foundation (DFG).
