Get involved by Interest Groups

What is a NFDI4Earth Interest Group?

An Interest Group (IG) is a temporary or permanent forum for an information community or stakeholder group to e.g. identify, discuss and communicate requirements for NFDI4Earth, jointly advance NFDI4Earth-related concepts, technologies and processes, implement NFDI4Earth principles, or to disseminate specific NFDI4Earth offers.

IGs support the NFDI4Earth vision, connect with other initiatives and organisations, and complement the work of the NFDI4Earth Task Areas.
