e-IRG Workshop "Grand challenges of e-Infrastructures within the new ERA" to issue Call for Participation

The first open e-IRG Workshop in 2020 under the Croatian EU Presidency, will take place on 25-26 May 2020 in Zagreb, Croatia. The focus of this workshop will be on the Grand Challenges of e-Infrastructures within the new ERA.

The Croatian Presidency of the Council of the Union has organized its priorities with 4 pillars: an evolving Europe, a connected Europe, a Europe that protects and an influential Europe. The European Research and Higher Education Area, in general, and Research Infrastructures, including e-Infrastructures, in particular, can make a significant contribution to all priority objectives, through a range of activities, especially its flagship e-Infrastructure projects or programmes such as the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and EuroHPC.

The e-IRG Workshop organised in the framework of the Croatian EU Presidency will take place on 25-26 May in Zagreb and aims to address the Grand Challenges of e-Infrastructures within the new ERA, through the following sessions:

  • Future Skills in the new European Research Area (ERA)
  • Empowering the e-Infrastructure partnerships in ERA
  • Making data and services FAIR

The topics chosen for the workshop are very relevant to the completion of the first phase of the EOSC and the ongoing changes in the European e-Infrastructure landscape. And we promise to bring equally relevant and interesting presenters.

The workshop is jointly organized by the Ministry of Science and Education of the Republic of Croatia, University Computing Centre University of Zagreb (SRCE) and e-IRG Secretariat, under the auspices of the Croatian Presidency of the EU Council.

Participation will be free of charge. The working language will be English.
