FAIR Data Infrastructure for Condensed-Matter Physics and the Chemical Physics of Solids - FAIRmat: Lifting the treasure trove of materials data

The new project receives funding to build an infrastructure that makes it possible to make materials science data FAIR: findable, accessible, interoperable and re-purposable. This will enable researchers in Germany and beyond to store, share, find and analyse data over the long term.

The FAIRmat consortium, led by Claudia Draxl, professor at Humboldt University, is one of the projects selected by the Joint Science Conference (GWK) in a multi-stage competition of the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI).

During the five-year term, a total of 60 project leaders from 34 German institutions will work together in the FAIRmat consortium. Dr. Mark Greiner, head of the group 'Surface Structure Analysis' in the department 'Heterogeneous Reactions', is leading AREA B: Experiment together with Christoph Koch (Humboldt University Berlin).
