The National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) is currently being set up in Germany. This initiative is funded by the federal and state governments and is a nationwide competence and infrastructure network intended to support the provision, development, availability and reproducibility of research data in science. The consortia have beeen selected in three separate funding calls. In total, 27 consortia, representing various research domains, receive the funding. In the coming years the consortia will develop binding standards for research data and scientific workflows, as well as establish various services for their communities. The goal of the NFDI consortia is to enable a more fair, open and collaborative handling of research data.

All funded consortia are summarized in the following. Further details about the background and creation process of the NFDI can be found here and here (page available only in German!). You can find a sorting of the funded consortia according to disciplines here
