In the frame of the German NFDI (National Research Data Infrastructure), by now 27 consortia across all domains of science have been setup in order to enhance the FAIR usage and re-usage of scientific data. The consortium PUNCH4NFDI, composed of the German particle, astroparticle, hadron&nuclear, and astrophysics communities, has been approved for initially 5 years of significant funding.
On its way towards its still visionary science data platform – a biotope for the entire lifecycle of digital research products – PUNCH4NFDI has already made substantial achievements. To provide a federated infrastructure for the involved communities, prototypes of the Computer4PUNCH and Storage4PUNCH servers have been setup that employ established components and middleware from the WLCG community. Existing workflow execution engines are evaluated and adopted for an increasing number of usecases from the participating science disciplines. Work on overarching metadata schemata and related services is ongoing. Furthermore, a set of outreach and education & training activities is being devised, and the integration of the consortium and the disciplines represented by it into the greater German “National Research Data Infrastructure” is progressing, respecting European and international boundary conditions and efforts.
This contribution lays out the plan of the consortium and presents what it could contribute to the joint effort of the international HEP community.
