Krákow will be the home of the first joint event organised by the major European e-Infrastructure initiatives (EGI, EUDAT, GÉANT, OpenAIRE and RDA Europe).

EUDAT will contribute to the event with two presentations and a training session. The first presentation B2FIND: A Cross-Discipline Metadata Service and Discovery Portal focuses on B2FIND, one of the EUDAT B2service suite. B2FIND is a unique multi-disciplinary joint metadata catalogue of research data collections stored in EUDAT data centres and other repositories. Would you like to quickly find useful data resources for your research purposes or build new collections of data to address specific research questions or even get quick overviews of available data and produce statistics as well as sharing comments on the data with other users? We have it covered for you in this presentation.

The secon presentation is about the EUDAT-PRACE collaboration activites focusing on the advantages of coupling Data and HPC resources together.

Finally a full training session entitled "Explore and design your own workflow for safe data replication" will be held. The workshop presents and demonstrates data management services developed in the context of EUDAT. In particular, EUDAT’s B2SAFE and B2STAGE services guard against data loss, optimize access for users from different regions, and bring large data collections closer to powerful computers for compute-intensive analysis. To give the attendees deeper insight into these services, EUDAT will introduce the underlying technology, such as iRODS, persistent identifiers and gridFTP, which can generally be used to set up an infrastructure for data management. Use cases from communities employing EUDAT’s services or the underlying technologies will also be part of the training.
