Establishing the Research Data Management Container in NFDIxCS




Research Data Managment Container, NFDIxCS, Roadmap, Research Software, Software Sustainability, FAIR


NFDIxCS is a consortium within the family of NFDI, which defines and establishes a research data management (RDM) infrastructure for Computer Science (CS). Based on a broad community process, the various types of research data, their metadata and quality criteria are agreed upon in the community. The resulting research data, along with all associated supplementary information and context such as software, metadata, and the corresponding execution environment are provided as an integral part of the overall infrastructure to meet the FAIR principles. This extended abstract addresses the interaction of the presented task area Architectures & Interfaces within the NFDIxCS consortium and the planned activities, challenges, and objectives of the recently launched project.
