Base4NFDI Proposal is published on Zenodo

One aim of Base4NFDI is to provide a basis for better findability, accessibility, interoperability and reusability of research data. This also includes the publication of data. For this purpose, we have moved the Base4NFDI Proposal to Zenodo for better a find- and reusability. Take a look.

Four new proposals in the last  submission round in 2023  

Four new proposals have been submitted to Base4NFDI in the final submission round that ended on August 15th 2023. Three applications were submitted for the initialization phase and one for the integration phase (IAM4NFDI). Take a look and get to know the services that are being discussed in the upcoming weeks: 

NFDI Research Software Marketplace "" will implement a central research software marketplace to enable access to a large portfolio of research software relevant to researchers and research software engineers. will integrate information on relevance and adoption of software in communities and connect research software to publications, data, services and more. 

Though Jupyter notebooks are widely used across scientific disciplines, their deployment through individual JupyterHubs results in access barriers to computational and data resources. Jupyter4NFDI aims to unify these efforts by offering a centralized service, simplify access, support the import of projects and extend the reach of Jupyter to a broader audience. 

Competence Training for Research Data Management "RDMTraining4all" 
RDMTraining4all aims to develop modular teaching concepts and materials that can be used to create training programmes and courses in research data management (RDM). Experts in RDM training will furthermore support training responsibles in the consortia in transforming these modular concepts and materials into discipline-specific training programmes and running and certifying the corresponding training activities. 

Basic Service for Identity and Access Management “IAM4NFDI” 
IAM4NFDI is concerned with connecting and expanding existing and emerging IAM systems in a way that researchers from different domains and institutions are able to access digital resources existing within NFDI as easily as possible, including access to and exchange with external infrastructures and resources. IAM4NFDI aims to create a decentralized, federated Identity and Access Management and will conclude their initialization phase in February 2024.
IAM4NFDI was the first proposal to successfully pass the first round of submissions in February 2023. After the last few months of development, the service is now ready to move from the initialization phase to the integration phase.

A decision about the funding of these four services will be made in October by the Consortia assembly and after evaluation by the Technical Expert Committee.This year, NFDI sections were able to submit applications for basic services on three dates.
