NFDI-Matwerk Summer School 2023 – Research Data Management in Materials Science and Engineering, 18th – 22nd September 2023

PhD-students and post-docs working in experimental and/or modeling/simulation in any field of materials science and engineering (with or without experience in FDM) with basic knowledge on programming (e.g. in Python, MatLab or similar programing languages) participated in our NFDI-MatWerk Summer School 2023 in September. 

Aim and Contents: 

Enabling a consistent and unobstructed standardization of research data will lead to substantial improvements in efficiency and synergies/collaboration among individual researchers and well-designed IT systems. In the era of digital infrastructures, this measure holds paramount importance in shaping the future of research. For the data to be sustainable and reusable, it must adhere to the “FAIR Data Principles”, meaning it should be “Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Re-usable”.

The FAIR principles will be a cornerstone of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) implementation. Nowadays, Data Management Plans (DMPs) have become a requirement for project applications in Horizon Europe and are increasingly being demanded by various funding organizations, including the German Science Foundation (DFG), among others.  

The scientific consortium NFDI-MatWerk (National Research Data Infrastructure) focuses on the research area Materials Science & Materials Engineering (MSE). The central challenge is the digital representation of materials and their relevant process and load parameters. NFDI-MatWerk will provide in this summer school tailored information and solutions for dealing with research data in MSE.
