Projects InfoSys funded by Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG (07/2013 – 12/2014) Summary: In material sciences, a large amount of research data is generated through a broad spectrum of different experiments. As of today, the research data is often stored decentralized without generally accepted templates. Goal of the project is to establish a centralized information system for material sciences and to provide citable and (openly) accessible experimental data to the research community. More...
