NFDI4Earth (i) vernetzt Wissenschaftler:innen aus der Erdsystemforschung in nationalen und internationalen interdisziplinären Netzwerken, (ii) schafft einheitliche Regelungen für die Bereitstellung von qualitätsgesicherten und leicht integrierbaren Forschungsdaten, (iii) bindet existierende Forschungsdatenrepositorien ein und (iv) entwickelt mit der Community der Forschenden die nächste Generation von Datenaustausch- und Datenanalyseumgebungen. NFDI4Earth bildet die notwendige Grundlage für innovative und interdisziplinäre Forschungsansätze, die vielfach auch die drängenden globalen Herausforderungen wie Klimawandel, Wasserknappheit, Landnutzungsänderung, Umweltverschmutzung und Naturgefahren adressieren.

EcoDM [Ecosystem Data Management] is the joint project "Ökosystem Datenmanagement: Analysen - Empfehlungen - FAIRification". The main issue of the project is how to use the constantly increasing amount of data from various sectors systematically and sustainably according to the FAIR principles (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable).

FID GEO is a project that implements advanced information and publication services for the geoscientific community in Germany. Its focus is on the geosciences of the solid earth. FID GEO is funded by “Specialised Information Services Programme” of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), which establishes a number of discipline-specific “Fachinformationsdienste (FID)” in Germany. FIDs supplement existing information infrastructures at universities and research institutions, providing additional services nationwide.

Since 2005 the Helmholtz Open Science Coordination Office is supporting scientists as well as their respective Helmholtz Centres in the implementation of open science. A dedicated newsletter and the Helmholtz Open Science Workshops are only two examples of how the Coordination Office is giving information and advice about new developments, strategies, and ideas.

The project is establishing a new information and networking service for open access. It aims to improve the exchange within the scientific community on this topic. The three central goals are to provide information, to teach new skills and to advance networking of the existing community.

The ORCID, short for Open Researcher and Contributor ID, is a unique identifier for researchers that enables the networking of scientists wirth their publications, research data and other products of the research process (e. g. software).

The goal of was to create a global registry of research data repositories. The registry covers research data repositories from different academic disciplines. presents repositories for the permanent storage and access of data sets to researchers, funding bodies, publishers and scholarly institutions. In the course of this mission aims to promote a culture of sharing, increased access and better visibility of research data. In the first phase of the project the following tasks are prioritized:
