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.
