Nanoscience & Data Science: NFFA-Europe Pilot 

From 1.3.2021, the EU will fund the “NFFA (Nanoscience Foundries and Fine Analysis) Europe Pilot” (NEP) project for a period of five years. At KIT, the SCC and the Karlsruhe Nano Micro Facility (KNMFi) are involved.

From 1.3.2021, the EU will fund the “NFFA (Nanoscience Foundries and Fine Analysis) Europe Pilot” (NEP) project for a period of five years. At KIT, the Steinbuch Center for Computing (SCC) and the Karlsruhe Nano Micro Facility (KNMFi) are involved.

NEP is the continuation of the successful NFFA-Europe project, with 23 partners who provide important resources for nanoscientific research and develop new cooperative working methods. The use of innovative research data and metadata management technologies is becoming increasingly important.

In the NEP project, the SCC Department Data Explotation Methods (DEM) will contribute with new methods for metadata enrichment, development of large data collections, and the provision of virtual services to the establishment of a joint research data infrastructure.
