Gergely Sipos, Head of Services, Solutions, Support, has represented EGI and the EGI-ACE project today at Scientific Stakeholders’ Dialogues organised by PHIRI project. This event aimed to connect, interact or exchange with relevant national and international stakeholders. It hosted active discussions around three themes at the core of the project: FAIR catalogues describing (population) health data, building a federated infrastructure; and crisis preparedness and rapid policy response. The event was also attended by Salvador Capella-Gutierrez from BSC (Barcelona Supercomputer Center), our partner in HealthyCloud project.
Both Gergely and Salvador participated in the panel session focusing on health data analysis in a federated architecture discussing the obstacles and achievements of federated infrastructures, and topics of how to upgrade the infrastructures such as PHIRI in a way that they are sustainable and technologically evolving
EGI-ACE is a 30-month project coordinated by the EGI Foundation with a mission to empower researchers from all disciplines to collaborate in data- and compute-intensive research through free-at-point-of-use services. EGI-ACE receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 101017567.
The HealthyCloud project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the grant agreement Nº 965345. In HealthyCloud, EGI leads the task on the analysis of the existing computation infrastructures with special view on health research, and will propose a reference architecture for computational services to serve the Health Research and Innovation Cloud ecosystem.
