The second EOSC-hub Week 2019 will take place on 10-12 April 2019 at the Vienna House Diplomat in Prague, Czech Republic. This year, EOSC-hub Week 2019 brings together both present and future service providers and users of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). 

The event comes just after the recent launch of the EOSC in November which saw EOSC-hub's Catalogue of Services incorporated into the new EOSC. With the EOSC now live and in its early stages, the challenge now is to enrich EOSC's service offering to cover all the gaps in research services and increase uptake by the research community. This is what makes EOSC-hub Week 2019 timely.

During the event, an open call for users and service providers will be launched. Stronger involvement from the ESFRI communities, the HPC Centers of Excellence and the public sector will also be sought through three interactive sessions dedicated to discuss how EOSC can make a difference for these different target groups. Industry will also play a relevant role through the Industry and EOSC session featuring the joint presence of the EOSC-hub Digital Innovation Hub and OCRE (Open Cloud for Research Environments project). 

The latest developments across the EOSC-sphere will also be discussed and analysed within several sessions dedicated to various thematic areas such as Earth Observation, Life Sciences, Physics and Astrosciences, and Humanities and Social Sciences.

The event won't just cover pan-European EOSC matters. Local developments and initiatives will also be put on the spotlight with a session on National Initiatives.

Our poster submitted to the EOSC-hub week was accepted and EGI representing the AGINFRA PLUS project will participate in the event.  

The programme of the event is available here

ABOUT THE PROJECT

OUR COMMUNITIES

The selected AGINFRA+ Use Cases will illustrate the benefits of applying the Science as a Service approach to pressing research questions from the corresponding research communities.

AGROCLIMATIC AND ECONOMIC MODELLING

This community focuses on use cases aim to support the workflow of researchers, intermediaries and business analysts working on crop modelling, crop phenology estimation and yield forecasting, as well as related activities in the area of policy and decision support in food security, farm management advice and related activities.

FOOD SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT

This community focuses on use cases to support scientists in the multidisciplinary field of risk assessment and emerging risk identification as there is currently a strong need to create new technology-supported solutions that facilitate the knowledge integration processes relevant for these tasks.

FOOD SECURITY

This community focuses on use cases related to the high-throughput phenotyping large amount of data which need to be analyzed immediately for decision making. This aims to support phenomics researchers to select plant species and varieties which are the most adapted to specific environments and to global changes.
