DAPHNE4NFDI focuses on research with photons and neutrons at large-scale research facilities. The main goal of DAPHNE4NFDI is to make data from these experiments "FAIR", thereby making scientific work more efficient and gaining more knowledge from the data.

The overall goals of DAPHNE4NFDI are

  1. Improve metadata capture through consistent workflows supported by user-driven online logbooks that are linked to the data collection, thus enabling a richer capture of information about the experiments than is currently possible;
  2. Establish a community repository of processed data, new reference databases and analysis code for published results, linked, where possible, to raw data sources, to sustainably improve access to research data and enable data and software re-use;
  3. Develop, curate and deploy user-developed analysis software on facility computing infrastructure so that ordinary users can benefit from and repeat the analysis performed by leading power user groups through common data analysis portals.

This is the public version of the proposal of DAPHNE4NFDI. For more information please visit the project website.


This work is supported in the context of the work of the NFDI e.V. The consortium DAPHNE4NFDI is funded by the DFG - project number 460248799.
