National Research Data Infrastructure for Chemistry

nfdi4chem Logo

NFDI4Chem is an initiative to build an open and FAIR infrastructure for research data management in chemistry. The NFDI4Chem consortium has its origin in the “Fachgespräch Nationale Forschungsdaten in der Chemie (NFDI4Chem)” to which the Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology (TIB) and the German Chemical Society (GDCh) invited in April 2018. The vision of NFDI4Chem is the digitization of all important steps in chemical research. It aims to support researchers in their efforts to collect, store, process, analyze, publish, and reuse research data. NFDI4Chem will represent all disciplines of chemistry in the academic field. In the initial phase, it focuses on data related to molecules and reactions, including data for their experimental and theoretical characterization. The KIT participates with two co-spokespersons, the Steinbuch Centre for Computing (SCC) is responsible for the design, together with the Institute of Organic Chemistry (IOC) and the Institute of Biological and Chemical Systems (IBCS). The Friedrich Schiller University of Jena was responsible for the NFDI4Chem application.
