NFDI4Energy successfully started with a Kickoff!

On February 22, NFDI4Energy was finally officially launched with a kickoff event hosted by the University of Oldenburg as applicant institution. NFDI4Energy’s main goals are to establish standards and infrastructures for research artifacts in energy systems research to support interdisciplinary research in this field. The event brought together our partners from across Germany to discuss the project’s tasks and objectives, and to specify the details for the first phase.

Through NFDI4Energy, we aim to make research artifacts in the domain more accessible and reusable for the various stakeholders in energy systems research from research, industry, society, and politics. As emphasized by our spokesperson, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Astrid Nieße, we strive to enhance the work of researchers in energy systems research through our various services - the development of relevant services for the community is our focus.

The kickoff event was a great opportunity to connect more deeply with our partners and to align the common goals. We look forward to collaborating on this essential project for the next five years.

Our partners in NFDI4Energy: Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg, OFFIS Institute for Computer Science, the Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg, the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), the Research Institute for Sustainability (RIFS), the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), RWTH Aachen University, the oziologisches Forschungsinstitut Göttingen (SOFI), the Leibniz Information Centre for Science and Technology (TIB) in Hannover, the Reiner Lemoine Institute and the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology
