Description

CO-ORGANIZED BY EGI, EUDAT, GEANT and OpenAIRE
REGISTRATION: http://go.egi.eu/cf2015registration (free of charge)

In the conclusions on "open, data-intensive and networked research as a driver for faster and wider innovation" (May 28-29 2015) the Competitiveness Council welcomed "the further development of a European Open Science Cloud that will enable sharing and reuse of research data across disciplines and borders, taking into account relevant legal, security and privacy aspects".

Open Science is an umbrella term referring to "the practice of science in such a way that others can collaborate and contribute, where research data, lab notes and other research processes are freely available, under terms that enable redistribution, reuse and reproduction of the research and its underlying data and methods."
Open Science is not limited to open access to the outputs of the scientific process, but requires openness of each step of the research lifecycle (from ideas, to experimentation, data gathering, modelling, peer review, publishing, and finally education and training). In essence, Open Science aims at "rigorous, reproducible and transparent research".

The workshop offers an opportunity to focus on the requirements and challenges of the infrastructure needed for:

  • making the entire primary record of a research project publicly available online as it is recorded.
  • opening research data, i.e. managing research data to optimize access, discoverability and sharing for user and reuse
  • documenting, opening and sharing research code, and making it freely available for collaboration
  • publishing the output of the research process and make it freely accessible for maximum use, reuse and impact
  • bridging the gap between research and society with citizen science

The workshop, co-organized by EGI, GEANT, and EUDAT2020, will devote ample time to discussion and will offer the opportunity to users, e-Infrastructure and Research Infrastructure providers, publicly funded and commercial cloud providers, data providers, international research collaborations and policy managers to gather and discuss three key points:

  1. the mission and vision: what are the needs that the Open Science infrastructure addresses and services it should offer?
  2. the development: what are the services and processes still missing that the infrastructure must deliver?
  3. the governance: who are the service providers and the users, who is responsible of funding and procuring such infrastructure, what are the policies that need to be changed?

The "reading material" section is provided to you to learn about community's contributions to the Open Science Cloud idea.
The workshop conclusions will identify the barriers to remove and the actions needed.

NOTE. Participation is free of charge, but registration is mandatory through the EGI Community Forum registration system (http://go.egi.eu/cf2015registration).
