Data development and use TU Kaiserslautern supports the national research database
Technical University of Kaiserslautern is involved in three projects that have emerged from the multi-stage competition for the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI). The focus is on developing effective search data management.

Vast amounts of data are generated in the scientific environment. However, different methods and procedures are used for its storage, analysis and interpretation at each research centre. This is where the NFDI National Network comes in: the goal is to develop, manage, secure and sustainably research data, make it available and use it. The “FAIR” motto applies – data must be “searchable”, accessible (“accessible”), interoperable (“interoperable”) and reusable (“reusable”).
Collaboration on three projects
Technical University of Kaiserslautern is involved in three corresponding projects: The Mathematical Research Data Initiative (MaRDI) aims to develop a research data infrastructure for mathematics; The situation is similar in Materials Science and Technology (MatWerk), where, among other things, very complex relationships between data of different materials must be mapped. This can enable synergistic effects and reduce technological barriers. In addition, TU Kaiserlautern participates in the FAIRmat project (“FAIR Data Infrastructure for Condensed Matter Physics and Chemical Physics of Solids”), which deals with a wide range of research areas from physics and related disciplines.
The federal and state governments provide up to €90 million annually for the entire project until 2028. Says Professor D. Werner Thiel, Vice President for Research and Technology at Kaiserslautern Technical University. “I am delighted that we can contribute across disciplines to take this important and important step for the German research scene,” he adds.
