The first NFDI4Microbiota Community Workshop took place on November 21st, 2019 in Cologne. Members of the German microbial research community were informed about the NFDI4Microbiota consortium, discussed potential contributions and gave feedback about the weak points of the consortium, the missing parts of the consortium and the potential ways to involve the community. A comprehensive report of this workshop is now available:
The NFDI4Microbiota consortium will submit its proposal in October 2020. As discussed during the 1st Community Workshop (2019-11-21), institutions that wish to become co-applicants or partners are now welcome to submit a request. The number of co-applicants is limited, and they will be asked for a strong commitment. Selected co-applicants will receive NFDI funds. Partners can contribute with expertise or commit to support/use NFDI4Microbiota. In practice, candidates should submit a two- to three-page request (see forms in the Documents or Participate sections) by December 21st, 2019. Requests can be sent to email@example.com, and will be evaluated by January 31st, 2020.
