***The initiative is currently piloting its ideas and concepts for involving users in the development and setting of standards. At this site you can follow how the participatory development of basic principles for research data management in NFDI4Objects could look like.*** ![NFDI4Objects Community Icon][1] @[toc] ## Community Traction In order to meet the overarching goals of NFDI4Objects, we offer **simple structures** and **low-threshold support** for **clearly defined processes** and **practices** that are **shaped by the community**. The same principles of collaboration are used in the task areas, so that here too, there is the opportunity for **participation** and **interaction**. In this way we are achieving a decisive goal: **ongoing confidence in the consortium**. We want to know how we can best address all our community members, taking into account their * different disciplinary backgrounds, * their different states of knowledge in RDM and * their different institutional restrictions regarding digital communication. Our governance not only aims to foster bottom-up initiatives, it also puts in place structures and processes for a continuous dialogue that will support the cultural change we are pursuing: To achieve that, our governance aims for * firstly, a partial digital redefinition of traditional academic boundaries along the lines of overlapping needs in research data management * and secondly the establishment of standardized processes and practices in the consortium. The latter will help the members of our community to **identify** and **express** **common challenges** as a **shared vision**, and to actively participate in the development of solutions. Together and in close coordination with the Task Areas, **Community Clusters** (CC) form **Temporary Working Groups**(TWG) that take on a well-defined mission based on a clearly formulated roadmap and develop documents that take on an increasingly normative character. In this way, **everyone** from the Community can take the reins and initiate regulations for certain needs to solve common problems in research data management. ## About Temporary Working Groups ### Short Description The NFDI4Objects Temporary Working Groups (TWG) are the driving force behind the consortium's continuous development of standards and specifications. TWGs are convened along thematic lines at the initiative of a TA or the community to support the TAs in implementing the work programme. A TWG also allows Expert Clusters and Community Clusters to launch initiatives not yet covered by the work programme of the consortium. The formation of a TWG has to be proposed by at least one Co-Applicant Institution; the members of a TWG are appointed by the Spokesperson based on an outline of the initiative, which is developed in cooperation with TA6. A TWG is dissolved as soon as the goals of the initiative have been achieved, if it merges with another TWG, or if it has become inactive. [Here][3] you can learn more about how a TWG works ### Kurzbeschreibung Die NFDI4Objects Temporary Working Groups (TWG) sind die treibende Kraft hinter der kontinuierlichen Entwicklung von Standards und Spezifikationen durch das Konsortium. TWGs werden auf Initiative einer TA oder der Community entlang thematischer Linien gegründet, um die TAs bei der Umsetzung des Arbeitsprogramms zu unterstützen. Eine TWG ermöglicht es den Experten-Clustern und Community-Clustern auch, eigene Initiativen zu starten, die noch nicht durch das Arbeitsprogramm des Konsortiums abgedeckt sind. Die Bildung einer TWG muss von mindestens eines Co-Applicant vorgeschlagen werden; die Mitglieder einer TWG werden vom Sprecher auf der Grundlage einer Skizze der Initiative ernannt, die in Zusammenarbeit mit TA6 entwickelt wird. Eine TWG wird aufgelöst, sobald die Ziele der Initiative erreicht sind, wenn sie sich mit einer anderen TWG zusammenschließt oder wenn sie inaktiv geworden ist. [Hier][4] können Sie mehr über die Arbeitsweise einer TWG erfahren ### List of active TWGs [Communication Concept][5] ### List of concluded TWGs ### Essential Templates for TWGs The first step in establishing a TWG is the formal proposal submitted to the Steering Committee. Der erste Schritt für die Einrichtung einer TWG ist der formale Vorschlag, der dem Steering Committee vorgelegt wird. Templates for a proposal are available in different formats: Vorlagen stehen in verschiedenen Formaten zur Verfügung: * [Template for TWG-Proposal (markdown)][6] * [Template for TWG-Proposal (OpenDocument)][7] * [Template for TWG-Proposal (PDF/A-3b)][8] * [Template for TWG-Proposal (Office Open XML)][9] ## About Community Cluster ### Short Description Community Clusters will bring together communities with only few points of contact in their professional networks but similar needs and common challenges in RDM. They are designed for new community initiatives that are not yet part of the work programme, but need to be integrated into the process. Further information on the structure, organisation and establishment of Community Clusters is currently being developed ### Kurzbeschreibung Community-Cluster bringen bestehende Communities zusammen, die nur wenige Berührungspunkte in ihren professionellen Netzwerken, aber ähnliche Bedürfnisse und gemeinsame Herausforderungen im Forschungsdatenmanagement haben. Sie sind auch für neue Gemeinschaftsinitiativen gedacht, die noch nicht Teil des Arbeitsprogramms sind, aber in den Prozess integriert werden müssen. Weitere Informationen zu Struktur, Organisation und Gründung von Community Clustern werden derzeit erarbeitet. [1]: [2]: [3]: [4]: [5]: [6]: [7]: [8]: [9]:
