EOSCpilot 1st stakeholder engagement event

Save the date! The EOSCpilot project is excited to announce its 1st stakeholder engagement event, which will take place at the SQUARE in Brussels, from 28 to 29 November 2017.

EOSCpilot brings together stakeholders from research infrastructures and e-infrastructure providers and aims at creating an open environment to use research data, knowledge and services. EGI is supporting the project by contributing services, knowhow, policies, and the requirements of large-scale international user communities.

The event will be an interactive gathering of representatives and experts from the stakeholder groups, enabling them to have their voice heard in the first phase of development of the future European Open Science Cloud. The five science demonstrators already involved in EOSCpilot will have the chance to present their work to a broader public audience.

Both days will include plenary sessions with high-level policy and governance representatives.

Designing a common European digital service catalogue for research: take part!

The eInfraCentral project (European E-Infrastructure Services Gateway) opened an online survey to gather information about all digital services for research from independent providers with the aim of creating a single entry point to European e-infrastructure services. eInfraCentral‘s mission is to ensure that by 2020 a broader set of users benefits from European infrastructures.

EGI’s contribution to the project is related to requirements efforts and harmonising the classification of services. EGI will also provide advice on the portal specification and is one of the advocates for the common service catalogue in terms of convincing other e-infrastructures to share their service catalogues.

This survey is designed for digital service providers, their users, customers and interested stakeholders to help identifying requirements and needs for the development of a common e-infrastructure service catalogue in Europe.

The survey is open until 31 May 2017.
