Keynote: Open Science with the European Open Science Cloud

14:06 by Diana Unander

During this years Big Data Conference at Linnaeus University on December 5-6 2019 we have several very interesting Keynote speakers, one of them is Gergely Sipos works as Customer and Technical Outreach Manager for the EGI Foundation. He will give a talk about Open Science with the European Open Science Cloud.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to listen to him and take part of the conference by signing up here by November 25th.

In recent years, the vision of Open Science has emerged as a new paradigm for transparent, data-driven science capable of accelerating competitiveness and innovation. The embodiment of this vision in Europe is the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). This presentation will introduce the EOSC initiative, its current implementation from the EOSC-hub and other projects, and will show
how EOSC can already facilitate Open Science. EOSC-hub is a 33 million Euro project that started in January 2018 with the involvement of over 100 institutes. EOSC-hub defines, creates and operates the integration and management system of the EOSC. This integration and management system (the Hub) builds on mature processes, policies and tools from the leading European e-infrastructures to cover the whole life-cycle of services from planning to delivery. Through this management system online and ‘human’ services, software and data are delivered towards researchers via the EOSC Portal and its Markerplace. The Portal already includes over 100 services from 3 e-infrastructure communities (EGI, EUDAT, INDIGO-DataCloud), and from over 20 Research Infrastructures and scientific service providers. The catalogue of services is expected to radically grow in the next years. The Hub acts as a single contact point for researchers and innovators to discover, access, use and reuse a broad spectrum of services starting from baseline infrastructure services (such as HTC clusters, IaaS clouds, storage, security) to domain specific applications, datasets and portals.

You can also meet Gergely Sipos during the tutorial session about Open Science with Jupyter, Zenodo and Binder on December 4th.

More information about Gergely Sipos he coordinates EGI’s engagement programme and supports researcher communities and educators from academia and industry in tackling big-data and big-compute challenges using state of the art services from the EGI community. Gergely holds an MSc and a PhD in computer science and project management from the University of Miskolc, Hungary. He became involved in grid computing in 2002 and researched high-level user environments and collaborative design tools. Prior to EGI, Gergely worked in training, consultancy and user support for the EGEE project from his base in Budapest, where he promoted grid technology and distributed computing practices to scientific communities.
