The NFDI-MatWerk consortium receives a five-year grant within the framework of the National Research Data Infrastructure(NFDI) for the development of a joint materials research data space. NFDI-MatWerk stands for Materials Science and Engineering to characterize the physical mechanisms in materials and develop resource-efficient high-performance materials with the most ideal properties for the respective application.

Data from scientific groups distributed across Germany are to be addressed via a knowledge-graph-based infrastructure in such a way that fast and complex search queries and evaluations become possible.

At KIT, the Steinbuch Centre for Computing and the Institute for Applied Materials(IAM) are involved. In the SCC, we will establish the Digital Materials Environment with the infrastructure services for research data and their metadata together with the partners.
