Cooperation and Network
Together with the scientific stakeholders of the UFZ, we cooperate with a wide range of partners and initiatives to help shaping the development of research data management on a national and international level. The following is an overview of projects and initiatives for which we provide expertise and infrastructure:
|As part of the setting-up of a National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI), the UFZ is participating in the consortia NFDI4Earth, NFDI4BioDiversity, NFDI4Chem and NFDI4MicroBiota.|
In the Helmholtz research field Earth and Environment, we are a shaping partner in the development of the TERRA Hub of the DataHub initiative.
|With our activities in the areas of data infrastructure development and digital transformation, we contribute to a more sustainable research data landscape promoted by the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).|
|eLTER (European Long-Term Ecosystem and socio-ecological Research Infrastructure) is a large-scale contribution to the further development of european research infrastructures for long-term ecosystems. The 162 sites in 22 countries provide data on long-term trends in environmental change. The RDM team is involved in data integration and IT services.|
The five Helmholtz Incubator platforms constitute a Helmholtz-wide network to expand the expertise in the field of information and data science and to foster collaboration across disciplines and research fields.

|The effects of dynamic events on earth and the environment are studied by MOSES (Modular Observation Solutions for Earth Systems) .The sensors being used for this purpose provide a multitude of data to be recorded, annotated and stored in a structured way.|
|The observation platform TERENO (Terrestial Environmental Observatories) combines spatially and temporally recorded long-term data from various representative regions of Germany in order to develop and evaluate environmental process models.|
|In close contact with gfbio and PANGAEA we support the development of workflows and frameworks for research data management in the environmental, geoscience and bioscience fields.|
|In collaboration with the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv) we provide software solutions to support research projects focused on biodiversity.|
|In cooperation with the German Weather Service (DWD) we can reprocess selected current and historical weather data and make them available for research at the UFZ.|
|We contribute our expertise to the initiative SaxFDM and represent the UFZ within the Saxon RDM community.|
|We partner with the Institute for Applied Informatics (InfAI) in infrastructure development projects, e.g. BioMe, INTOB and the refinement of our timeseries data management infrastructures.|
|The expertise of our partner 52°North flows into various projects, e.g. geodata infrastructure, sensor management system.|
