CoRDI brought together researchers on data infrastructure including all NFDI consortia!
As NFDI4Energy, we were happy to join the successful 1st Conference on Research Data Infrastructure (CoRDI), which took place in Karlsruhe from September 12 to 14, 2023. The CoRDI illuminated the critical role of effective research data management and necessary infrastructure in advancing research and innovation across various domains. As NFDI4Energy, we participated with over 15 researchers and contributed four presentations and one poster. Also, we presented NFDI4Energy in the market of the consortia.
Empowering the Energy Research Community
Our first presentation titled “Current Insights from Task Area 1 in NFDI4Energy: Building and Serving the Energy Research Community”. A dynamic team comprising O. Werth, S. Ferenz, A. Niesse, R. German, L. Huelk, C. Weinhardt, and B. Vogel illuminated the importance of identifying and harnessing the right requirements for research data and software management in the energy research.

FAIR Data for Energy System Research
Another highlight of NFDI4Energy’s contributions at CoRDI was the presentation on “FAIR Data for Energy System Research: An Overview of NFDI4Energy Task Area 4”. A. Wein, J. Reinkensmeier, A. Weidlich, J. Lilliestam, V. Hagenmeyer, M. Richter, S. Auer, A. Nieße, and S. Lehnhoff provided a comprehensive overview of Task Area 4, emphasizing the adoption of FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable) data principles in energy system research. This commitment to data transparency and accessibility ensures that research data remains transparent, accessible, and reusable for scientific progress in the energy domain.

Engaging Society and Policy for Sustainable Energy Solutions
Transparency and societal involvement took center stage in NFDI4Energy’s presentation on “Transparency and Involvement of Society and Policy in a Data Sharing Platform”. C. Speck, P. Jaquart, C. Weinhardt, J. Lilliestam, M. Schäfer, A. Weidlich, J. Zilles, and N. Kerker underscored the importance of involving society and policy in energy research through transparent data sharing platforms. Trust and collaboration with stakeholders are essential in shaping sustainable energy solutions. (https://doi.org/10.52825/cordi.v1i.327)
Real-World Applications: Case-Study on Energy Scenarios
M. Schäfer, R. Qussous, L. Hülk, J. Lilliestam, and A. Weidlich contributed a presentation titled “NFDI4Energy Case-Study: Comparative Analysis and Visualization of Long-Term Energy System Scenarios”. This presentation showcased the practical application of research data and their comparative analysis and visualization for energy research especially long-term energy system scenarios. The real-world implications of energy research and its research data became vividly clear through this illuminating case study. (https://doi.org/10.52825/cordi.v1i.294)
Industry Engagement and Transparency
In an ever-evolving research landscape, the collaboration of industry players is instrumental. NFDI4Energy addressed this critical aspect with the poster “Transparency and Involvement of the Energy-Related Industry in a Data Sharing Platform” presented by Z. Pan, G. Gurses-Tran, C. Speck, P. Jaquart, M. Niebisch, and A. Monti. The poster emphasized the importance of industry involvement and transparency in energy research through data sharing platforms.
