The structure and activities of the NFDI will be undertaken both by the consortia representing particular scientific and scholarly communities as well as through the contributions of individual institutions to the activities of the NFDI association itself.
The recently established association NFDI e.V. is now open to membership by institutions that can further its goals of supporting scholarship and science through a national research data infrastructure across various fields of study, particularly those institutions that are part of existing or planned NFDI consortia.
The Leibniz Institute of European History (IEG) in Mainz is the lead applicant institution for the NFDI4Memory consortium, which represents the community of the historically oriented humanities.
We are pleased to announce that the IEG has now been confirmed as a member of NFDI e.V., and it is joined by the following 4Memory co-applicant institutions as institutional members:
- Baden-Wuerttemberg State Archives
- FIZ Karlsruhe - Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure
- Herder Institute for Historical Research on East Central Europe - Institute of the Leibniz Association
- Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg, Historical Data Centre of Saxony-Anhalt
- Trier University
Other 4Memory co-applicant institutions plan to join NFDI e.V. in the coming months.
As both a planned consortium and through its individual institutional members of NFDI e.V., 4Memory aims to contribute to the overall goals of the NFDI, to work together with other consortia across disciplines (particularly with our partners in the humanities), and to serve its community.
We look forward to working together, as a consortium and as institutional members of NFDI e.V. in meeting these goals.
