Supporting institutions and joint research projects
FAIRmat has already numerous supporters, and the number is growing steadily. This map of Germany illustrates our supporters and their locations in Germany. Listed are the institutions of active participants (blue), as well as the institutions (red), computing and data centers (dark red), joint research projects (green), and industry (purple), which have confirmed their support or cooperation through a statement of their director or president. Here are some examples:
"FAIRmat is an initiative that originated in the Condensed Matter Section (SKM) of the German Physical Society and was significantly influenced by SKM scientists, but now extends far beyond physics. The SKM acknowledges the already impressive interdisciplinary experience and success of the FAIRmat initiative and strongly supports the application for a NFDI consortium. We look forward to continuing our close cooperation with FAIRmat."
(Erich Runge and Martin Wolf, Spokespersons of SKM)
"FAIRmat brings together leading domain scientists with IT experts and cutting edge IT infrastructure. The agenda of the FAIRmat proposal paves the way to a new data-driven materials science, where research data from experiments, computations, and synthesis can be accessed, seamlessly analyzed, and hence exploited for the understanding of existing and the design of new materials. This will open completely new paths to insight in materials science. In addition to this scientific perspective, FAIRmat can also become a blueprint for other domains, which shows the strategic perspective of FAIRmat." (Gerhard Kramer, Senior Vice President for Research and Innovation at the Technical University of Munich)
A detailed list of these supporting institutions and joint research projects can also be found below. Looking at the map of the scientific landscape in Germany, it becomes clear that FAIRmat is strongly networked throughout Germany - with all federal states being represented. Colleagues are invited to contribute their expertise and actively shape the necessary data infrastructures. If you would like to become part of FAIRmat, please register here.
