NFDI4BioDiversity is a consortium of 49 partners dedicated to deliver practical tools for researchers and improve data availability for environmental studies/ecology. We are part of a greater network within the German National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI), which is funded through a 10-year-programme of the Joint Science Minister Conference in Germany (GWK).

To foster access to interoperable data, NFDI4BioDiversity focuses on the following six objectives:

  1. Promoting research data management as an integral part of biodiversity research
  2. Enabling FAIRness of data
  3. Consolidating FAIRness with quality
  4. Embedding NFDI4BioDiversity into the (inter-)national landscape
  5. Addressing NFDI-wide cross-cutting topics
  6. Promoting collaborative governance, viability and sustainability of data infrastructure services and science.
