MaRDI consortium has started

The Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach is part of the "Mathematical Research Data Initiative" (MaRDI) consortium. Beginning in October 2021 the consortium will be funded over a period of 5 years.

The MaRDI consortium is coordinated by the Berlin Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS). It currently includes 23 other partners (universities and research institutes, scientific infrastructure facilities, clusters of excellence as well as the German Mathematicians Association DMV and the European Mathematical Society EMS).

MaRDI is one of several consortia within the initiative "Nationale Forschungsdateninfrastruktur" (NFDI, National Research Data Infrastructure), which is intended to systematically make valuable data stocks from science and research accessible for sustainable use. According to the the so-called FAIR-principles, data should be easily findable, accessible, interoperable, and re-usable. At the moment, however, a lot of the data is only available locally, project-related and often only for a limited period of time. The consortia shall develop strategies tailored to their scientific disciplines in order to establish a research data management according to the FAIR-principles. The MFO will mainly provide a personal contact point for the mathematical community and as such collect feedback by the community directly and via surveys.
