Common Standards

Our mission
Our main aim is to foster reproducibility and reusabilty of    research data in NFDI4Earth by both humans and  by machines in close alignment with the FAIR principles.  Together    with our partners, we draft and develop a network of FAIR-enabling data models and services to implement the required policies, rules    and procedures for FAIR with the  key objective to  integrate and mobilize ESS data into European (EOSC) and global data spaces.
At the moment we are involved in two core products/services:

The NFDI4Earth Data Model

We will define the architecture as a set of infrastructures and services, as well as their interactions. This will cover all aspects of NFDI4Earth, such as applications, storage, data integration and access. We will base its design on input from multiple stakeholder groups, both the internal (e.g. pilots, participants, NFDI4Earth community) and external (e.g. NFDI Research Data Commons, international ESS) community. This incorporates compatibility with initiatives such as EOSC.
