The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) will play a key role in creating a national research data infrastructure (NFDI). At its meeting on 6 December 2018 in Bonn, the Joint Committee of the largest research funding organisation and self-governing organisation of the research community in Germany agreed to take on new responsibilities following the decision of the Joint Science Conference (GWK) on 16 November to set up a national research data infrastructure in Germany. The DFG will conduct the initial selection process, regularly evaluate the established consortia and manage their funds.
