ADCR 2022 – NFDI Partners and Exhibitors

In late September, it was with great pleasure that we welcomed our partners and visitors to the second NFDI4Cat annual meeting (for the first time as ADCR) at the DECHEMA House in Frankfurt am Main. The meeting was held as a hybrid event with almost 60 people on site and many more online.

In addition, NFDI4Chem, FAIRmat, Daphne4NFDI, NFDI4DataScience and OntoCommons joined the event with an exhibition booth, which was met with great interest among the visitors of the annual meeting. 

We would like to thank our partners and speakers for their visit and support!


NFDI4Chem is an initiative working on building an open and FAIR infrastructure for research data management in chemistry. On site were: Johannes Liermann, Ann-Christin Andres, John Joliffe and Hans-Georg Weinig (DGCh).


The main objective of DAPHNE is to improve the transparency, FAIRness, and re-usability of data measured at photon and neutron facilities for the wider research community beyond the individual group which performs the measurement. On site were: Katja Kornetzky, Carlos Manuel Lobo Silva, und Astrid Schneidewind.


FAIRmat is working on building a FAIR data infrastructure for materials science. We were pleased that, Annette Trunschke und Lucia Alessandra Rotheray were our guests.


The vision of NFDI4DataScience (NFDI4DS) is to support all steps of the complex and interdisciplinary research data lifecycle, including collecting/creating, processing, analyzing, publishing, archiving, and reusing resources in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence.

Martin Himly, Chair of the EU NanoSafety Cluster WPG-A on Education, Training and Communication and Exner Thomas Chief Scientific Officer (CSO) at Edelweiss Connect presented their work within the OntoCommons project. Ontocommons is a H2020 CSA project dedicated to the standardization of data documentation in all areas of the materials and manufacturing industry.

A special thanks to Wiley-VCH for sending a group of editors to assist us in our efforts. Many thanks to Kim Meyer (Angewandte Chemie), Francesca Novara (Chemistry-Methods und ChemistryOpen), Sandra Gallardo (ChemCatChem und EurJIC) und Charlotte Gers-Panther (ChemCatChem)!
