GFBio III - Project details

German Federation for Biological Data III

The German Federation for Biological Data (GFBio) aims to set up a sustainable, service oriented, national data infrastructure facilitating data sharing and stimulating data intensive science in the fields of biological and environmental research. GFBio follows a holistic approach including technical, organizational, cultural, and policy aspects. The development of the infrastructure is essentially based on the collective experience and expertise of leading researchers from multiple disciplines as well as on a network of complementary and professional data facilities in the biological and environmental sciences communities, including PANGAEA, major German natural history collection data repositories, and selected facilities from the molecular biology research community. GFBio is projected for three phases setting out the way from development to management of services.

The current phase III will concentrate on the consolidation of the infrastructure.
