On behalf of the NFDI4Culture consortium, we cordially invite you to the third community forum "(Further) Development of Research Tools & Data Services". The meeting will take place in virtual form on Friday, 29 September 2023 from 9 am to 1 pm.

The aim of the event is to identify the needs regarding the (further) development of research tools and data services in consultation with researchers and members of the various communities and professional societies. Funds will again be available in 2024 for the realisation of software solutions.

With the upcoming event, we would like to build on the success of the forums of the last two years, after whose discussion and analysis six measures were proposed to the Culture Steering Board in 2021 and ten in 2022, which subsequently received funding (Forum 2021, Forum 2022).

This year, we would again like to give you the opportunity to present (further) developments of tools and services and to identify additional needs for suitable tools that appear suitable for funding in the future. Measures that have already been funded also have the opportunity to apply again and present planned developments. The work packages to be funded within the projects should not exceed a maximum of 10,000 €.

The following timetable is planned for the implementation of the forum and the subsequent evaluation and decision-making process:

  • 28 July 2023: Dispatch of call for proposals, start of submission
  • 29 August 2023: Submission deadline
  • 30/31 August 2023: Review of submissions, dispatch of programme
  • 29 September 2023, 9 am – 1 pm: Community Forum
  • Last quarter 2023: Analysis and selection of measures and decision in the Culture Steering Board, preparation of funding allocation for 2024

If you are interested in participating in the Forum, please officially register by 28 September 2023.

An official call for proposals for tools and services will follow on 28 July 2023. Please feel free to check our portal for the latest information.We are very much looking forward to the exchange and the upcoming cooperation with you!
