Open Science in Europe is constantly evolving, and each country is working hard to ensure an overall improvement of a dynamic environment where researchers can collaborate and thrive. Germany is no exception to this rule, as demonstrated by the major steps recently taken by its newly-established National Research Data Infrastructure, NFDI (Nationale Forschungsdateninfrastruktur), directed by York Sure-Vetter.
Earlier this year, the EOSC-Pillar project already had a first chance to learn more about the Open Science landscape in Germany thanks to EOSC Association Director Klaus Tochtermann.
After collecting some basic knowledge about NFDI, we were absolutely looking forward to hearing more. In the middle of the evaluation of the second round of consortia, and while busy preparing the second NFDI Conference, York Sure-Vetter found time for an insightful tour around the development and status of NFDI and shared his expectations on the future of the initiative.
