Knowledge & Information
Tools & Platforms
More and more digital research data is generated. So, new concepts are essential:
- In which data formats can data be stored in the long term?
- How and where can data be stored?
- Which information of the experiment / the simulation should be noted in the metadata?
- How can these data be made accessible for group members and other researchers?
- How can these data made findable for researchers?
NFDI4Ing adresses these challenges of research data management in a user-driven approach. In order to implement the FAIR data priciples (findable, accessible, interoperable and re-usable) and to develop the best-suited infrastructure and services we need your insights!
Data are 21st century’s new oil. The consortium NFDI4Ing is collecting, qualifying, and structuring research data from the engineering sciences. NFDI4Ing brings together all engineering research communities and fosters the management of their research data. NFDI4Ing thus makes research data sustainably accessible in accordance with the FAIR principles, i.e., in citable form and under licenses that are as free as possible.
for members & participants
These tools are under limited access to members and participants of either the NFDI4Ing or NFDI. We are actively working on increasing availability or opening up alternative services. Check in again for updates.

How to get in touch?
Please check our FAQ page first – your question may already be answered there. If you cannot find the information you are looking for, read on.
For general questions and information about the consortium, you can contact the office either via the contact form stored here or via the contact information stored on the linked page.The contact information for the individual archetypes, base services, special interest groups (SIGs) and community clusters can be found on the respective profile pages. You are also welcome to use the contact form below:
What happens next?
Your request goes out to a member of the NFDI4Ing consortium and will be picked up by the person with the greatest expertise on the particular topic. We will connect you with the right expert(s).
With this FAQ we hope to be able to record as many of the questions from our engineering community as possible and to answer them according to the current state of affairs. See also our more general FAQ in the contact & faq menu.
What do you want to know?
Participants formulate a concrete application example (use case), to address their need for NFDI4Ing. Content Use Case: Concrete situation or problem from practice (user story)
Are you interested in being a participant? How exactly do participants participate in the consortium?
The specific form of collaboration will depend on the “service” that the Participants can provide and what their own contributions can be. Other forms of
