As announced, the second public community forum „(Further) development of Research Tools & Data Services in NFDI4Culture“ will take place on Thursday, 15th September 2022, 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. Like last year, the aim of this virtual forum event is to identify the needs of the community regarding research tools and data services in collaboration with you as researchers and members of the different academic societies. You are welcome to submit proposals for funding which will be discussed in plenary.

Please note that measures which have already been funded have the opportunity to reapply. Within the task area "Research Tools and Data Services" a total of 120,000 EUR is available in 2023 for the realisation of the proposed projects.

Please submit your proposals by 29th August 2022.

The subimission is closed. Thank you for your participation.

In order for us to be able to discuss and evaluate the submissions in good manner, please provide as many concrete information as possible and outline the work packages of your proposal as planned, including expected cost and timeframe. Please note that proposals will need to be realised within 2023.
