Base4NFDI 2024 Retreat in Kiel

Kiel retreat


Beautiful weather, ferry trips, nice dinners … what might sound like a holiday was indeed our annual Base4NFDI retreat! The entire team of staff and co-spokes, met at GEOMAR in Kiel for a few days to work on everything Base-related: project roadmaps, strategic planning, and – of course – team building. Since Base4NFDI is built of a number of diverse teams, enriched by different backgrounds and fields of expertise, it is important to get everybody on board. With a number of fun activities, we were able to get to know each other better and to build on already existing common strengths and goals.

Alongside team building activities, we worked on our project roadmaps, on initiating plans for a future service portfolio, on updating our service application templates, and on consolidating operations.

Furthermore, our sessions on strategic planning were successful: We came up with further plans and aspects for a mission statement, we finalised the next steps for all activities concerning our International Advisory Board, and we identified a number of ways to further involve the NFDI community with our services.

While we are aware of the challenges that lay ahead of us, we are certain that with our team, the motivation and dedication every single one of us brings to the project, we are able to face all those challenges successfully. Until the next retreat in 2025, we will continue our good work and keep on supporting basic services for NFDI!
