DI4R 2017: Connecting the building blocks for Open Science

Europe’s leading e-infrastructures invite all researchers, developers and service providers to participate to the second edition of Digital Infrastructures for Research conference, which will be held this year in Brussels, Belgium, from 30 November to 1 December 2017.

The DI4R 2017 conference is jointly organised by EGI, EUDAT, GÉANT, OpenAIRE, PRACE and RDA Europe. The theme of the event is “Connecting the building blocks for Open Science”.

DI4R 2017 will showcase the policies, processes, best practices, data and services that, leveraging today’s initiatives – national, regional, European and international – are the building blocks of the European Open Science Cloud and European Data Infrastructure.

The conference will demonstrate how open science, higher education and innovators can benefit from these building blocks, and will contribute to advance integration and cooperation between initiatives.

The event’s programme will be available at the beginning of September. Registration and a call for participation for lightning talks, posters and demonstrations will open at the same time. All participants to the DI4R will be welcome to a welcome evening cocktail on the 29 of November at SQUARE in Brussels, organised by the EOSCpilot project as part of their event.

EGI is proud to be one of the major organisers of the second edition of DI4R. We are glad to see the growing interest and we look forward to working together with our colleagues from e-Infrastructures and research infrastructure to prepare a thriving programme. Together we will better collaborate, promote open science and bring us closer to the realisation of EOSC and the EDI.” says Tiziana Ferrari, Technical Director of the EGI Foundation and member of the DI4R 2017 Steering Committee.
