Related Use Cases


The definition and elaboration of harmonized standards marks an essential ingredient to the NFDI goal of making data interoperable. This need for harmonization among NFDI consortia but also with the outside world is reflected in the importance of cross-cutting topics for the NFDI process. The PTB is planning to contribute its expertise in the development of fundamental, internationally recognized standards to NFDI-MatWerk as well as other relevant NFDI consortia. We are going to provide expertise and liaise with relevant parties in the following critical areas, building on our experience:

  1. Fundamental, internationally harmonized data and metadata standards
  2. Fundamental quality assessment of research data and algorithms
  3. Basic infrastructure for persistent identifiers for 1.) and 2.)
