Connecting National and International Data Infrastructures in Biodiversity Research
The Case of NFDI4Biodiversity, a German Consortium for Biodiversity, Ecology and Environmental Data
Keywords:Biodiversity, Ecology, Community-based services, Research Data, NFDI, Germany, NFDI4Biodiversity
NFDI4Biodiversity is a consortium within the German National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) dedicated to data and services for biodiversity research and ecology. In the domain, well-developed international networks exist, with quite mature tools and data standards. These are used and disseminated in the NFDI4Biodiversity project in order to mobilise and publish data collected by national stakeholders according to the FAIR Guiding Principles for scientific data management and stewardship.The consortium partners provide methods and tools for archiving, publishing, searching and analysing data that are suitable for everyday use and have been tried and tested in practice. The consortium also functions as a forum for technical and legal matters of data and data-related workflows. In this way, the consortium is providing added value to the community regarding access to modern technologies and a comprehensive stock of biodiversity and environmental data.
