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 and may complement the work of the NFDI4Earth Task Areas.
