NFDI4Ing is a consortium of engineering sciences and promotes the management of technical research data. NFDI4Ing was founded back in 2017 and is in close exchange with researchers from all engineering disciplines. The consortium offers a unique method-oriented and user-centered approach to make technical research data FAIR - discoverable, accessible, interoperable and reusable. An important challenge here is the large number of sub-disciplines of engineering and their subject-specific peculiarities. KIT is involved with a co-spokesperson, Britta Nestler from the Institute for Applied Materials(IAM) and a co-spokesperson, Achim Streit from the Steinbuch Centre for Computing (SCC).
As part of NFDI4Ing, the SCC is developing and implementing the concepts for federated research data infrastructures, data management processes, repositories and metadata management in close cooperation with the partners. The NFDI4Ing application describes the planned research data infrastructure in detail.
