NFDI-Consortium "DAPHNE" consortium not yet at the target

The Daphne application (DAta for PHoton and Neutron Experiments) within the NFDI has been very well evaluated. Nevertheless, it was not recommended for funding. However, the review panel acknowledged the high scientific quality of
the project and praised the comprehensive approach. Therefore, we are planning to re-apply in the next round in autumn.
