Basic Services for NFDI
Base4NFDI creates NFDI-wide basic services in a world of specific domains. Unlike other NFDI consortia, Base4NFDI does not focus on a specific set of technical or methodological skills and competencies. Instead, it strives to create a portfolio of interdisciplinary services that will benefit all the NFDI consortia.
Base4NFDI will support services in a three-phase process: their initialization, integration and ramping up for service operation. In Base4NFDI a service is understood as a technical-organisational solution, which typically includes storage and computing services, software, processes and workflows, as well as the necessary personnel support for different service desks.
As part of the overarching mission, Base4NFDI supports access to and exploitation of research data across all scientific disciplines and areas of research - building on the various consortia’s existing solutions.
