European Services on Data
As part of the e-IRG workshop we would like to start looking at the European eco-system of services on data. These are services given to European researchers across country boundaries. We would like to motivate all initiatives/institutes which are offering such services to describe their services with the help of a simple preliminary form which you can find here. We are intending to make this registry a continuous activity and improve the web-site. Those who described useful services will get space to present them by short presentations posters.
Coordination of e-Infrastructures
As another part of the workshop, coordination of e-infrastructures will be discussed. This is a central element of implementing the e-IRG strategy, where e-IRG should facilitate coordination (from the users perspective) of the different e-infrastructure initiatives in Europe, and also facilitate the coordination between the European and national levels. In this discussion, we will invite scientists and research infrastructure experts to provide constructive comments.
