National and European e-Infrastructure Cooperation for Open Science

Organisers: EGI, GÉANT and OpenAIRE
Duration: 3.5 hours
 
This collaborative workshop comes in the context of coordinating EOSC related activities across large European infrastructures at European and national level. The workshop will offer an opportunity for cross-pollination on issues ranging from open scholarship to technical service provision, training, community engagement and support. OpenAIRE NOADs, EGI NGIs, GEANT NRENs and other national e-Infrastructure representatives will discuss gaps, synergies, coordination and service integration opportunities.
 

 WORKSHOP ABSTRACT

This collaborative workshop comes in the context of coordinating EOSC related activities across large European infrastructures at European and national level. OpenAIRE NOADs, EGI NGIs, GEANT NRENs and other national open science stakeholders provide complementary but related services for the research lifecycle and each contribute to serve a wide range of communities (research, higher education, libraries, and innovators). The future research support landscape is such that horizontal local, regional and international infrastructures will be providing a range of services; increasing coordination of service provisioning, support and outreach are necessary.

The workshop will offer an opportunity for cross-pollination on issues ranging from open scholarship to technical service provision, training, community engagement and support. This half-day interactive workshop will take the opportunity of bringing together national e-Infrastructure representatives to discuss gaps, synergies, coordination and service integration opportunities.

The diverse audience will provide an excellent opportunity for brainstorming and learning national approaches to common issues. 

Workshop areas:

  • Training
  • Technical support and helpdesk provisioning
  • Community engagement involving the research community, the librarian community, higher education, industry and SMEs, citizens
  • Service integration and provisioning

Take away’s will be:

  • Clearer understanding of the infrastructures among participants
  • A view on related areas and knowledge sharing among the infrastructures as well as any existing gaps
  • Establishing a framework for future collaboration between the three infrastructures
  • Coordination of EOSC-relevant national initiatives

Who is the workshop for?

  • National service providers – institutions, infrastructures (NOADs, NRENs, NGIs etc.)
  • Research collaborations
