NFDI4Health call for project funding Local Data Hub 2024

‘Transparency of research studies: Establishment of Local Data Hubs as part of research data management in the NFDI4Health’

Application deadline: 30 June 2024 | Information event: 18 June 2024 | Announcement of funding: 15 July 2024

NFDI4Health is a consortium that systematically catalogues data from medical studies as part of the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI), makes it visible and reusable for further scientific questions and hypotheses. The aim is to sustainably utilise the often considerable effort that goes into planning, conducting and processing the collected data in studies and research projects.

The prerequisite for sharing data is to publicise existing data and research projects. NFDI4Health supports this goal by setting up decentralised registers that can be used individually for each study site, the so-called Local Data Hubs (LDH). In the Local Data Hub, studies at the study site are described in a standardised manner. This includes the objectives and descriptions of the studies, the parties involved and other study documents, publications and references to the data. Access to these resources can be regulated via fine-grained authorisations. Visibility at a global level is ensured by transferring them to a central component, the German Central Health Study Hub. It can be used to search across all content published by different Local Data Hubs for studies that are of interest for further research questions and hypotheses and can be utilised. This also applies to research projects that utilise data from clinical care in order to answer innovative questions and validate hypotheses.

The aim of this call is to support the prototypical implementation of a Local Data Hub.


An information event will be held for interested parties on 18 June 2024 from 13:00 to 14:00 ( to discuss open questions. Registration is not neccessary.
