Experts, researchers and IT developers from the transport (BE OPEN) and food thematic (FNS-Cloud) clouds as well as ESFRIs and discipline projects and actors (Cos4Cloud and others) will be invited to discuss challenges and gaps of Open Science technological frameworks where to tackle cross-disciplinary research aspects, raising from management and mining of nutrition data from fisheries and aquaculture, environmental data, data coming from the transport and mobility sector, energy sector or tourism.
The workshop wishes to contribute to the further development of discussions and collaborations in Open Science towards a better management of the ocean, in the context of European and international initiatives such as the EU Green Deal, the UN Ocean Decade, the Belém and Galway Statements and the SDGs.
As demonstrated by the requirements of the Horizon Europe Framework Programme, Open Science has become a fundamental aspect of research across all disciplines. The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) initiative is a crucial part of this commitment and will link scientific communities, infrastructures, institutions, projects in Europe and beyond, ensuring that research data and results can be accessed, reused, combined to better tackle grand societal challenges.
This need for strengthening OS principles and practices is also reflected in a range of long-term initiatives in specific domains, such as the Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development launched by the UN this year. One of its goals is to bring about “a transparent ocean with open access to data, information and technologies”.
The H2020 project Blue-Cloud sails between these two currents, as the envisioned thematic entry point to EOSC for the ocean science community, strengthening and promoting OS culture in the marine domain by federating existing infrastructures and developing collaborative tools for research.
Ocean science has tight connections with a range of overlapping domains, increasingly involved in the EOSC ecosystem and with each other via joint use cases and successful collaborations. In this workshop, we are bringing together perspectives on Open Science and its future development towards contributing to a better management of the ocean, in the context of European and international initiatives such as the Green Deal or the SDGs.
