Vortragende Person/Vortragende Personen:

Modern research on an internationally competitive level is no longer possible without digital support. More and more data is generated and more and more technical systems are used. This leads to a paradigm shift that is currently being accompanied by numerous activities in the field of research data infrastructures. Prominent examples are the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) and the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

Within the NFDI consortium NFDI4DS, a national research data infrastructure for Data Science and AI is currently under development. The key idea is to work towards increasing the transparency, reproducibility and fairness of projects, by making all digital artifacts available, by interlinking them, and by offering new and innovative tools and services.

This interdisciplinary workshop will bring together researchers from different disciplines, to present and discuss recent developments. The goal is to create a common vision for a research data infrastructure for Data Science and AI.

The workshop will take place on Thursday, 28.09.2023 from 10:00 to 16:30 in Berlin (hybrid) in the context of INFORMATIK 2023.
