FAIRmat is being funded!
We made it! Today, the Joint Science Conference (GWK) announced its final funding decision about the National Research Data Infrastructure Program: FAIRmat is being funded as an NFDI consortium! A total of 10 consortia were chosen this year. You can read the official press release here: https://www.gwk-bonn.de/presseaktuelles/pressemitteilungen.
This success would not have been possible without your motivation and commitment, and we would like to thank all of you very much for that! It is great to know that a large community is behind the FAIRmat idea.
We are now looking forward to getting down to work with full vigour. As a first important step, we are now in the process of expanding the FAIRmat team with experts from different fields.

Let's build up a FAIR data infrastructure together!
