NFDI4Cat is a community-driven and user-oriented initiative to secure the digital future of catalysis
- Shaping the digital future of catalysis
- Transformation of the fields of catalysis and catalysis-related sciences into Digital Catalysis
- An infrastructure for the open and FAIR handling of data from catalysis
- Provide software and tools
- Education and training in applied research data management and data science for catalysis
- The Research Data Management School of Catalysis
- Community-oriented and user-centred initiative
- Better data quality
- An integral data perspective
- Advanced predictive capacity
- Bringing the vision "From molecule to process" to life on a digital level
NFDI4Cat consists of 16 experienced partners from all areas of catalysis. The disciplines of reaction and process engineering are also represented in the consortium. The catalysis and engineering competencies are complemented by expertise in the fields of data science, high-performance computing and machine learning.
