KFN email newsletter on 6 December 2021


Dear friends of research with neutrons,

>Activities of the KFN

Today the 102nd KFN meeting will take place - as a video conference, of course. Since there are many common topics, part of it is planned together with the KFS (Committee Research with Synchrotron Radiation). The topics are e.g. the funding programmes of the BMBF (ErUM-Pro and ErUM-Data), the start of the DAPHNE4NFDI project, the planning of the SNI2022 in Berlin and public relations. We will keep you informed!


The digital community meeting for the foundation of the ErUM-Data umbrella organisation *DIG-UM* will take place on 20 January 2022, from 14:00 to 17:00. A festive part and a technical part on perspectives of digital transformation in ErUM research are planned.

*Registration* please at

The central networking and transfer point *ErUM-Data-Hub* (knowledge, workshops, public) will actively support and help shape the digital transformation in ErUM research:

*Applications* for 4 vacancies of the team TVL E13/E15 please until 31 December 2021, see


On October 1st, the project DAPHNE4NFDI (DAta for PHoton and Neutron Experiments in NFDI) officially started being funded by the DFG, and now the new teams are forming and recruiting new talent. The consortium held a very lively online kickoff meeting on the first of December, with contributions from the facilities, users and industry partners from both neutron and synchrotron communities. We are looking forward to the chances and challenges that lie ahead of us. The home page is available at Please visit us and bookmark the page to stay informed. We invite you to join the task area working groups. To do so please contact the task area leaders by email (

There are vacancies available here as well (more to come soon):
