We have been following the updates and ongoing joint work (and plans for the future) of the major European networks in developing the European Open Science Cloud; it is a really ambitious effort that aims at providing all the necessary cloud, grid and other types of services to researchers in any discipline and research field so that they become more easily accessible and useful to their expected end users – the researchers. This process exhibits a high level of complexity, as it involves different types of stakeholders while it also needs to take into consideration the differences in the requirements of research communities activated in different contexts/domains.… Click to read the full post
On November 13th, 2015, a community workshop on the Open Science Cloud titled “Shaping the Open Science Cloud of the Future” took place in Bari, Italy, as a part of the EGI Community Forum 2015. Agro-Know was invited as a data-powered SME in order to contribute its experience on the data- and e-infra-related needs of the agri-food research community – other communities were represented as well, including bioinformatics, cancer research and the European Multidisciplinary Seafloor and Water Column Observatory (EMSO), among others.
This provided us with excellent opportunity to present how three different user types could benefit from the envisaged Ope Science Cloud – based on our actual experience in all three cases:
