FAIRmat Review took place November 2020

After the submission of the FAIRmat proposal in September 2020, the next step was the evaluation of the consortium in November 2020. The review was conducted in a virtual format and consisted of a presentation and a discussion of the proposal. FAIRmat was represented by Spokesperson Claudia Draxl, Deputy Spokesperson Matthias Scheffler, and representatives from Area A and D. 

The process of establishing a National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) now continues as follows:

  • February 2021: Consortia notified of review results of second round and opportunity to respond
  • March 2021: Meeting of Expert Committee / funding recommendations for second round submitted to the GWK
  • June 2021: Second-round funding decision by the GWK
