Invitation to active participation in the NFDI4Earth
Within the framework of the DFG call for proposals for the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI), scientific data stocks are to be systematically developed, sustainably secured and made accessible to a broad community. This is to be achieved through a process driven by science. The NFDI4Earth - a consortium of Earth System Research currently being formed - would like to participate in the National Research Data Infrastructure and invites other actors to participate.
