NFDI4Earth attends the NFDI Conference in Bonn

NFDI4Earth attended the first National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) conference organized by the DFG on 13/14. May 2019 in Bonn, thereby securing participation in the NFDI tendering procedure.

In order to be able to participate in the NFDI conference, a short project description in the form of an “extended abstract” was submitted to the DFG, which succinctly presents the basic ideas, background and goals of the project. Prof. Monika Sester, Prof. Lars Bernard and Roland Bertelmann introduced the planned NFDI4Earth consortium with a short presentation and a poster at the conference. Presentation slides and poster are linked on the NDFI4Earth website.

“The two-day meeting was endorsed by all participants as consistently positive,” writes the DFG in its detailed press release on the conference.
