Global Open Science Cloud Workshop now live at EGI 2020

The Global Open Science Cloud (GOSC) workshop is jointly organised by EGI, Computer Network Information Center (Chinese Academy of Science) and CODATA. The workshop will discuss how to bring Open Science at the Global Level.  It will be an unique opportunity to bring together senior representatives of international research communities, policy makers, digital infrastructure representatives and funding agencies, focusing on the coordinated support to international research communities.

The idea of a Global Open Science Cloud was initiated during the CODATA 2019 Beijing conference. The mission of GOSC should be to connect different international, national and regional open science clouds and platforms to create a global digital environment for borderless research and innovation.

The workshop is part of the EGI Conference 2020 programme. This annual conference brings the EGI community - with over 70.000 users, including scientists, service and resources providers, and technical experts across Europe and beyond - together to share experiences and explore future collaborations.

The workshop will have four sessions, designed to maximize international participation:

  • GOSC, the Concept and Preliminary Landscape (3 November 2020, Tuesday; 11:15-12:45 CET, 5:15-6:45 AM Eastern US & Canada, 18:15-19:45 Beijing)
  • Research Communities and Co-Design of GOSC (3 Nov 2020, Tuesday; 13:15-14:45 CET; 7:15-8:45AM Eastern US & Canada; 20:15-21:45 Beijing)
