Nature data as a basis for decisionmaking in politics and society
iDiv researchers to play a leading role in setting up National Research Data Infrastructure
Based on a press release of the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena
The German Research Foundation (DFG) has approved the application of a nationwide consortium of biodiversity researchers to fund a National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) of biodiversity data. The aim is to provide high-quality data, tools and infrastructures that follow the FAIR guiding principles (findability, accessibility, interoperability and reuse) in a sustainable manner. NFDI4BioDiversity is partly coordinated by researchers from the Friedrich Schiller University (FSU), the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv), the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ), and many other iDiv partner organisations participate.
