Academy serves as a think tank to connect young researchers from all ESS
sub-disciplines and their data-driven research. Moreover, the NFDI4Earth
Academy allows its intrinsically motivated Academy Fellows to advance their
data analysis skill set at the intersection of mathematics, statistics,
computer sciences, and Earth science in a peer-mentored environment.
Concurrently, NFDI4Earth findings such as standards, tools, algorithms,
workflows particularly from pilots and incubators and data cube technologies
can be tested and implemented in the Fellows’ ongoing research projects and,
therefore, serve as an initial proof of concept. Academy Fellows are key
players in the NFDI4Earth Academy’s agile organizational frameworks.
contribute to the continued scientific and future-oriented development of
NFDI4Earth, academy fellows are encouraged to play an active role in the
governance structures of NFDI4Earth. The open NFDI4Earth Academy programme aims
to connect diverse scientific topics and sub-disciplines within the ESS
community to foster interdisciplinary data science. The NFDI4Earth Academy
concept is transferable to other scientific disciplines. It may serve as a
blueprint for an NFDI Academy that unites all NFDI consortia’s efforts to advance
young researchers' NFDI-compliant data science skills.
