NFDI4Microbiota received feedback from the expert committee for its proposal and presentation

The NFDI4Microbiota consortium, which includes 10 co-applicants and more than 50 participants, participated in the second call for proposals for NFDI consortia at the end of September 2020. At the beginning of December 2020, the consortium presented and defended its proposal in front of an expert committee. Last week, the expert committee released their review which, to our delight, was outstanding and encouraging. The consortium sees this as a confirmation that it is on the right track, and is now looking forward to the next step of the selection process: the final decision on funding consortia to be taken in June 2021 by the Joint Science Conference (GWK).
