The two recent topics of current discussions in the Research Infrastructure community are “European Open Science Cloud” and “Catalogues of Services and Data”. To discuss these, H2020 funded project eInfraCentral invites researchers from public and private sectors, e-infrastructure service providers, research infrastructures and policy-makers to the EOSC community event on 20 June in Tallinn and Estonia.
Funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, eInfraCentral is one of the key building blocks in the implementation of the EOSC Portal. Since January 2017, EFIS Centre, JNP, University of Athens, Leibniz University Hannover and five major European e-infrastructures EGI, EUDAT, GÉANT, OpenAIRE, and PRACE has worked together in developing a service catalogue for European e-infrastructures and e-services. The mission behind this work is to ensure that by 2020 a broader and more varied set of users (including industry) discovers and accesses the existing and developing e-infrastructure capacity.
On 20 June 2019 we invite you all to take a forward-looking view and discuss the road ahead for the EOSC community in Europe and in the EU Member States. The programme was this event was developed by eInfraCentral in consultation with other EOSC-related projects such as EOSC-hub and EOSCsecretariat.eu.
Tallinn as a location was chosen not by accident and not only because TNC19 will be happening there the same week. Estonia has an ambitious vision “of becoming a safe e-state with automatic e-services available 24/7” and Tallinn is one of the smartest cities in Europe.
Achieving success in this digital transformation revolves around three keywords: accessibility, interoperability, and user-friendliness 500all what the eInfraCentral team and the community strove to achieve in building the EOSC Catalogue!
This event is free of charge and is conveniently located close to TNC19.
See you soon in Tallinn! Kohtumiseni Tallinnas!
