RDM Projects from Germany – Data Literacy in NFDI

October 6th, 2022 | by


National Research Data Infrastructure Germany (NFDI)


Data literacy describes the planned and competent handling of data. It is a key competency for effective Research Data Management (RDM).


“A high level of data literacy is more important than ever against the background of large, heterogeneous data volumes and demanding user programs,”


says NFDI Director Prof Dr York Sure Vetter [1]. For this reason, the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) e.V. association is striving to increase data literacy in science and has launched the Data Literacy in NFDI project for this purpose. As part of our series “RDM Projects from Germany”, we present the new project to you.

Online-Workshop | Basics Metadaten und das Erstellen von Applikationsprofilen in Coscine

August 16th, 2022 | by

This entry is only available in German.

Ohne Metadaten sind Forschungsdaten wertlos. So sind aussagekräftige und maschinenlesbare Metadaten eine Voraussetzung für qualitativ hochwertige und nachhaltig nutzbare Forschungsdaten und ein Kernelement FAIRer Daten (findable-accessible-interoperable-reusable).

Auf der FDM-Plattform Coscine können Sie Forschungsdaten mit für Ihre Forschung passenden Metadaten annotieren. Dazu stellt Ihnen Coscine bereits grundlegende Applikationsprofile zur Verfügung. Wie Sie diese erweitern oder eigene Applikationsprofile erstellen, erfahren Sie in diesem Online-Workshop.
