Data are an important raw material of the 21st century. This applies in particular to materials science. However, the lack of an efficient data exchange infrastructure is a major obstacle to this area's progress. In the field of computer-aided materials science, the NOMAD CoE (Novel Materials Discovery - Center of Excellence) has brought about a cultural change towards comprehensive data sharing and paved the way for big data analyses. This leads to new insights and even the discovery of new materials for technologically important applications.
