NFDI4Earth Pilots

The development of the NFDI4Earth is driven by the researchers’ needs and requirements for research data management according to the FAIR principles. NFDI4Earth uses Earth System Science Pilots to engage the community. These Pilots stem from different domains of the ESS community, do manifest the researchers’ needs and are the community’s contribution to an agile development of the NFDI4Earth.
Pilots do typically run for one year and are evaluated against a set of pre-defined criteria. 
Once NFDI4Earth is funded by DFG annual calls for pilots will be launched.

14 Pilots become part of the 
new NFDI4Earth proposal!

NFDI4Earth starts with running 14 Pilots, which are collected from an open call, evaluated in an open review process and become part of the new NFDI4Earth proposal.
