From 22 to 25 January 2018, Porto (Portugal) will host the EUDAT Conference "Putting the EOSC vision into practice": Sharing & preserving research data across disciplines and borders.
Bringing together data infrastructure users and providers and policy makers from across Europe, the EUDAT Conference will:
- Showcase the latest trends in data infrastructure and data management solutions for research;
- Demo the solutions developed by EUDAT to address researchers and research communities’ data management needs, through concrete pilots;
- Inform about the concrete opportunities offered by the newly established EUDAT Collaborative Data Infrastructure (CDI) to the service providers and research communities;
- Discuss the progress of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and the European Data Infrastructure (EDI) and the contribution of EUDAT as well as other infrastructures to these two initiatives.
Community decision-makers and data managers, scientists and research communities, policy-makers, e-Infrastructure projects, research infrastructures and ESFRI projects are welcome to contribute to our conference.
Registration is now closed.
There is a growing awareness that the “rising tide of data” requires new approaches to data management and that data preservation, access and sharing should be supported in a seamless way. Data, and a fortiori Big Data, is a cross-cutting issue touching all research communities and infrastructures. EUDAT’s vision is data shared and preserved across borders and disciplines and its mission is to enable data stewardship within and between European research communities through the EUDAT Collaborative Data Infrastructure. EUDAT offers a common model and service infrastructure for managing data spanning all European research data centres and community data repositories. EUDAT is the largest pan-European data infrastructure and is conceived as a network of collaborating, cooperating centres, combining the richness of numerous community-specific data repositories with the permanence and persistence of some of Europe’s largest scientific data and computing centres. The EUDAT partnership is a network of 36 pan-European trusted organisations – data centres, HPC centres, and research institutions – all closely connected across Europe to offer scientific communities and users reliability, sustainability and confidence in the longevity of research data management services. In 2016, a 10-year agreement was signed by EUDAT service providers, guaranteeing long term sustainability to communities, infrastructures and their end-users. EUDAT offers a suite of research data management services to support data managers in their daily work and with their ever-increasing data management challenges. Covering both access and deposit, from informal data sharing to long-term archiving, and addressing identification, discoverability and computability of both long-tail and big data, EUDAT services aim to address the full lifecycle of research data. European research organisations, data and computing centres can join the EUDAT CDI.
