eInfraCentral calls for participation to EOSC community event on June 20, 2019

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, 2019 in Tallinn, Estonia: "Building Open Science in Europe: The road ahead for the EOSC community".

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, G√ČANT, OpenAIRE, and PRACE have 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 eInfraCentral invites all stakeholders 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 at this event has been developed by eInfraCentral in consultation with other EOSC-related projects, such as EOSC-hub and EOSCsecretariat.eu.

Tallinn not by accident was chosen as the event location 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, all what the eInfraCentral team and the community are striving to achieve in building the EOSC Catalogue.

This event is free of charge and is conveniently located close to TNC19.

You can register for this event at the eInfraCentral website.
