The Museum für Naturkunde Berlin (MfN) is one of the largest natural history museums in the world with over 30 million objects in its collection. Collected as evidence of the diversity of nature, its collections are at the same time testimony to the history of science and culture. The Museum für Naturkunde Berlin, as a research institution and foundation under public law, has been a member of the Leibniz Association since 1 January 2009.
The goal of the research area "Digital World and Information Management" is the implementation of a sustainable architecture for natural history data and data repositories, which opens up new possibilities for answering research questions in both the area of "Data Science" and "Public Engagement with Science".
The research infrastructure „Distributed System of Scientific Collections (DiSSCo)“ (https://www.dissco.eu/) is aiming for the digital unification of all European natural science assets under common curation and access policies. DiSSCo enables the transformation of a fragmented landscape of the crucial natural science collections into an integrated knowledge base that provides interconnected hard evidence on the natural world.
The EU funded project DiSSCo Prepare aims to assess the current state of the art of the Research Infrastructure among five dimensions (scientific, data, financial, technological and organisational) and set the targets to ensure a seamless transition to a fully deployed construction plan.
