First NFDI Berlin-Brandenburg network meeting

Weierstrass Institute Berlin
October 12th, 2023, 10am-4pm

Scientific scope

The NFDI_BB meetings aim at setting up a network of the 25 NFDI consortia located in the Berlin-Brandenburg area. The main goal of the first NFDI_BB meeting is to establish contacts between the members of the different consortia, as well as identifying common fields of interest. Particular focus will be on the mutual benefit cooperations between the projects from consortia in different disciplines. Further meetings should then follow approximately once per quarter.


All organizers are members of the MaRDI team at the WIAS.
