Project Collaboration Infrastructure (INF) supports the research projects across the consortium primarily in the areas of research data management (RDM) and data curation, shared resources, and virtual collaboration. RDM is essential for repeatable research, and even more for state-of-the-art research projects and consortia, where
infrastructure and coordination on a large scale are needed. Providing reliable storage and open access supports long-term outreach, open science, and trust in the scientific field. Shared resources (e.g., hard- and software) allows research groups to work with a large variety of advanced devices often not affordable for a single group, while sharing information (e.g., high-quality streaming of events) supports virtual collaboration and doctoral training across sites.
