Consortium

NFDI4Chem started as a grassroots initiative in April 2018, driven by experts in the field after the first position paper by the German Council for Scientific Information Infrastructures (RfII) to establish a national research data infrastructure for Germany. It has therefore already been maximally inclusive and consulted a wide range of user communities in chemistry in Germany. Numerous representatives of research institutions, infrastructure facilities, computer centres, professional societies and other stakeholders have made important contributions to the development of NFDI4Chem. In autumn 2019, the following consortium with its spokespersons, co-spokespersons and participants was formally formed. NFDI4Chem is supported by the German Chemical Society (GDCh), German Bunsen Society for Physical Chemistry (DBG) and German Pharmaceutical Society (DPhG) – representing approximately 40,000 members – to reach out to the chemistry community as a whole. The NFDI4Chem Community additionally involves many, many active partners not listed here. NFDIChem is lead by the Applicant Institution Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena.
