June 2021 – Newsletter "Research in Germany"

Dear {NAME[std:Reader]},

A knowledge repository for the entire research landscape – this is what Germany’s new National Research Data Infrastructure is aiming at. The first consortia now have started their work, and to this end will receive 750 million euros over the coming years. As usual, you will find individual funding and career advice for international researchers in our June issue, too, and get insights into an architect’s research into more sustainable building materials. And of course, we are still happy to meet you at our events – at least virtually. Enjoy!
