First things first: Happy new year! NFDI4Microbiota is already operating for 2,5 months and many things are in preparation. One milestone was the collection and publication of trainings and workshops organized by the members of our consortium. Now you can find the planned trainings for the first half of 2022 in the new training section. Because all good things come in threes, we can finally announce that Prof. Dr. Konrad Förstner was elected as consortial speaker for NFDI4Microbiota within NFDI e.V. and Prof. Dr. Alice McHardy his representative. Last but not least, if you are looking for a new challenge and want to work in our consortium, have a look at our current vacancies in the job section.
We are delighted to announce that the Joint Science Conference (GWK) has decided to fund NFDI4Microbiota. We would also like to congratulate the other newly-funded consortia: FAIRmat, MaRDI, NFDI4DataScience, NFDI4Earth, PUNCH4NFDI, Text+, BERD@NFDI, DAPHNE4NFDI, NFDI-MatWerk. We look forward to serving the microbiology community and to collaborating with the already and newly funded NFDI consortia.
NFDI4Microbiota, represented by Konrad Förstner, introduced the consortium today during the kick-off symposium of the Euregional Microbiome Center (EMC). Thomas Clavel, the spokesperson of NFDI4Microbiota co-applicant RWTH Aachen University, is a member of the board of directors of the EMC. NFDI4Microbiota looks forward to establishing further collaborations in microbiota research with this new international center.
