Material development generates large amounts of data that are processed in supercomputers such as the KIT ForHLR high-performance research computer. The NFDI consortium FAIRmat has set itself the task of making these data more usable.

For the materials sciences, the digitization of research data and their general use are enormous challenges. Only with well-structured data repositories can new materials be predicted from the multitude of data and produced more easily.
How such access organized via the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) can look like has been described by researchers from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in a collaboration with other German universities and the Max Planck Society in a Perspective article in the journal Nature.
