KFN newsletter on March 18, 2019


Dear friends of neutron research,

We would like to inform you about a funding initiative of the DFG on building
up a National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI), which will be funded with
90 Mio. € per year in the period from 2019 to 2028. This is complementing the
ErUM programme of the BMBF that we have mentioned before.
In order to take part in the programme, consortia have to be formed, which
have to apply with an abstract **until March 29, 2019**. This abstract is
required if you want to take part in the first NFDI conference on May 13/14
2019, where the DFG will inform about the NFDI. It also offers the possibility
for exchange with international research experts.

National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) –
NFDI Expert Committee decides at inaugural meeting to hold NFDI conference for
all potential applicants

General information on the NFDI programme can be found at

Detailed information with funding criteria and directives are at this link:

We ask neutron of all research institutions who are interested in this
programme and or want to take part, to send proposals to Klaudia Hradil /
Astrid Schneidewind or to inform us about their plans. Both of them are
available for further information or for helping to find contacts or

With kind regards,

Astrid Schneidewind, KFN chair
