BERD@NFDI funded

Federal and state governments are investing millions of euros in the establishment of a national platform for the analysis of Big Data in the economic and social sciences.

Over the next five years, the BERD@NFDI consortium will build and develop a national cloud-based platform for the application of artificial intelligence, machine learning and complex analytics in the field of economics and social sciences. This platform will enable new insights to be gained from large unstructured data sets. In order to establish an adequate and sustainable platform as a research infrastructure for innovative Big Data projects, the consortium BERD@NFDI has joined forces under the leadership of the University of Mannheim with the participation of the University of Hamburg, University of Cologne, Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, the Institute for Employment Research, the ZBW – Leibniz Information Centre for Economics and GESIS.
