Our mission is to prepare Earth System Science (ESS) researchers and enthusiasts to conduct open and sustainable research leveraging NFDI4Earth services. We develop and publish openly licensed modular educational content, curricula, and services – for trainers and learners, online and in-person. We also collaborate with researchers willing to share their knowledge with the rest of the community through collecting educational material and funding novel educational ideas.
The development of new
open-licensed materials to meet the educational needs of the ESS community is
funded through educational pilots selected from the applications to our annual
calls. All materials developed by EduPilots will be available as Open
Educational Resources (OERs). Click here to see our current call and click here to see a list of our EduPilots.
All developed courses, NFDI4Earth service tutorials, and educational material will be available via the OneStop4All. Our portal will also provide you with a catalog of quality-checked existing external training and education materials for interested ESS researchers. By following our study plan developed and tailored for ESS researchers, users will be able to manage their research data according to the FAIR principles from the very beginning of their study.
the long-term and sustainable development of ESS competencies, an open network
of education and training hubs (EduHubs) will be established. EduHubs will be
run by partners who commit themselves to permanently offering education and
training services for ESS-related research data management and spatio-temporal
data science. The EduHub activities will be coordinated in collaboration with
the NFDI4Earth User Support Network.
