The roles of participants
In its Guidelines for Consortia – National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI), the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) gives the following information about participants:

The consortium can request funds for the involvement of participants.“
Specifically, here are the responsibilities participants could take on within the NFDI4Microbiota consortium:
- Suggesting measures
- Designing standards
- Providing data and software
- Using and promoting NFDI4Microbiota output within their local research community
