Dear users of the MaterialDigital platform, A lot has happened worldwide in the last few months. The MaterialDigital platform (PMD) was also surprised by the Corona pandemic and as a result switched its cross-organizational working methods to a virtual working environment. Despite the difficult conditions, we are pleased with what we have been able to achieve since then: The PMD is taking on more and more shape. Enclosed we give you an overview of our highlights. Information on the PMD's approach, its organisation, upcoming projects and a survey on behalf of NFDI-MatWerk.
At the headquarters of the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) in Berlin-Steglitz, an information workshop on the "MaterialDigital" call for proposals initiated by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) took place on 09.01.2020. The information workshop was attended by 200 representatives from numerous university and non-university research institutions that intend to participate in the open call for proposals.
The Platform MaterialDigital is offering an information workshop on the 09th of January 2020 in connection with the "Announcement of the BMBF call MaterialDigital". The workshop will take place at the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) in Berlin. We kindly ask interested participants to register. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us: Office of the MaterialDigital platform, Tel.: 0721 608 28950, E-Mail: email@example.com. We look forward to your participation.
Research data management in engineering sciences is becoming increasingly essential, especially in the materials sciences, as research into new materials is becoming increasingly complex. Storing, exchanging and accessing such amounts of data, including metadata, in a structured manner poses a major challenge. This is where research data management comes into play, the aim of which is to make digital research data accessible and usable.
The BMBF innovation platform MaterialDigital participates as a partner in the "Bunte Nacht der Digitalisierung Karlsruhe". The aim of the "karlsruhe.digital" initiative is to make digitisation in Karlsruhe visible and tangible for everyone through the "Colorful Night of Digitisation".
How will scientific work and product development evolve in the future? How will we share new insights with colleagues, who might work on the other side of the planet? Funded by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research, the joint project »Innovation Platform MaterialDigitial« has recently been established to pave the way towards a digital infrastructure for material science research data. The objective is to create a virtual materials data space that allows a systematic handling of materials data.
