For our German users: The Joint Science Conference (GWK) has agreed upon implementing and funding a National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) in Germany. NFDI will be organized around larger consortia bringing together science and infrastructure providers.
Google Dataset Search
Google has launched their new Dataset Search. Similar to how Google Scholar works, Dataset Search lets you find datasets wherever they're hosted, whether it's a digital library or a data publisher like PANGAEA. You can find references to most datasets in environmental and social sciences, as well as data from other disciplines including government. PANGAEA has contributed to the evaluation and refinement of this new tool. Check out the example for "marine litter"!
A data recommender system for PANGAEA
We found a new solution to improve the data discovery on the PANGAEA portal.
