NFDI Conference 2021

The third NFDI conference will take place on 8 July 2021 as a webinar.


The NFDI conference has three aims. First, it will enable dialogue and networking among all consortia, particularly between prospective consortia and existing consortia and those recommended for funding. Second, the DFG will provide representatives of prospective consortia with information about the NFDI and key points relating to proposal submission in the third and currently final round. Third, the NFDI Directorate, represented by Professor Dr. York Sure-Vetter, will attend the conference and inform participants about the NFDI Association and its upcoming activities following its recent establishment.


Requirements for Participation

Participation is free and generally open to any person who is interested in the further development of the NFDI, but only registered participants will have access to the online event. If you would like to participate, please register at Externer Linkhttps://tms.aloom.de/3-nfdi-konferenz-2021 by 25 June 2021.

In addition, representatives of prospective, third-round consortia have the opportunity to present their consortium and discuss proposed activities in subject-oriented meetings with other participants. To do so, prospective applicants must submit an extended abstract by 4 June 2021 and designate a person to present the prospective consortium and answer questions. Please send the abstract and contact details of the presenter by e-mail to Link auf E-Mailnfdi@dfg.de. In addition to the main formal details, the abstract should contain information about user requirements and the objectives of the prospective consortium.

The abstract is intended solely as preparation for the NFDI conference. It is non-binding with regard to any later proposal and review and should reflect the status of discussions and planning prior to the conference. The abstracts will be made available on the DFG website in advance for conference preparation.
