BERD@NFDI is an initiative to build a powerful platform for collecting, processing, analyzing, and preserving Business, Economic, and Related Data – all in one place. We will facilitate the integrated management of algorithms and data throughout the whole research cycle, with a special focus on unstructured (big) data such as video, image, audio, text, or mobile data.
BERD@NFDI will provide infrastructures for the challenges of expanded empirical research. We will not only foster community building, offer publicly available and online accessible data sets, and enhance data documentation and preservation guided by the FAIR principles. We will also provide an algorithm repository and benchmarks, computing and storage power to analyze (big) data as well as a broad set of APIs to interact with external systems.
