The increase in complexity of studies and techniques within Life Sciences (LS) lead to an explosion in the demand of computational resources. From Big Data to High Performance Computing (HPC), from the development of tailored solutions to general use applications, LS community is one of the target communities for future utilization of computational resources. The European Commission has recently presented the workprogrammes of the Horizon 2020, where multidisciplinary approaches are a key factor for success. This is particularly true for LS calls. This networking session will bridge Technology providers with Users having as background H2020. This session will foster the sharing of ideas and needs of both communities (EGI and LS) thus identifying common grounds for future collaboration, boosting the success of proposals to be submitted. The session should be an open meeting where delegates can share their ideas and is closely related to the Life Sciences workshop in the VRE track.
