Services for the European Open Science Cloud

Past Training Events

Training of “EUDAT Tools” (Part of “Train-the-Trainer: Exploring tools for FAIR data”)

Friday, August 17, 2018 - 09:45 to 16:15

Diving into four services developed in the EUDAT project: for data discovery (B2FIND), data exchange (B2DROP), data publishing and preservation (B2SHARE) and data annotation (B2NOTE). These services are now maintained and provided by the EOSC-hub project, which has started in 2018 with the aim to provide an access and delivery channel for the services, software and data provided by e-Infrastructures and research communities across Europe, working towards the future European Open Science Cloud.

2018 CODATA-RDA School of Research Data Science, ICTP, Trieste

Monday, August 6, 2018 - 14:48 to Friday, August 17, 2018 - 14:48

The CODATA-RDA Research Data Science Summer School provides training in the foundational skills of Research Data Science.  Contemporary research – particularly when addressing the most significant, transdisciplinary research challenges – cannot be done effectively without a range of skills relating to data. This includes the principles and practice of Open Science and research data management and curation, the use of a range of data platforms and infrastructures, large scale analysis, statistics, visualisation and modelling techniques, software development and annotation and more. We define ‘Research Data Science’ as the ensemble of these skills.

International Summer School “Data Management in Environmental & Earth Science Infrastructures: Theory & Practice” July 9 – July 13

Monday, July 9, 2018 - 09:00 to Friday, July 13, 2018 - 12:30

In recent years, one of the major challenges in the Environmental and Earth Science has been managing and searching ever larger volumes of data, collected across multiple disciplines. The ENVRIplus project investigated a collection of more than 20 representative environmental research infrastructures (RIs) from different areas. By examining these research infrastructures and their characteristics, a common data lifecycle was identified. The data lifecycle is structured in five phases: Data Acquisition, Data Curation, Data Publishing, Data Processing and Data Use. Many different standards, approaches, and tools have been developed to support the Data Lifecycle. In particular, modern semantic technologies provide a promising way to properly describe and interrelate different data sources in ways that reduce barriers to data discovery, integration, and exchange among biodiversity and ecosystem resources and researchers.

The course is built as a five-day summer school providing a unique insight into the contemporary debate on Data Management in the environmental and earth sciences.  Leading scientists and experienced technical specialists will address this topic from different angles, attempting to gather what we consider the most interesting perspectives of our time. We offer a cutting edge and high-quality programme, aimed at fostering a rich and lively intellectual exchange.

2018 UNIDATA User Workshop

The workshop will bring together community members, and distinguished speakers, and Unidata staff, to raise awareness of the current trends in the academic geoscience community with an emphasis on Data Proximate Analysis, Machine Learning and Data Analytics, Using GOES-16 Data, and Working with Ensemble NWP Output. Scientists and educators from the academic geoscience community will present ideas and techniques for making effective use of geoscience data and share activities, course materials, and ideas for improving education and research.

There will be hands-on workshops, a poster session, and time for informal discussions with presenters and Unidata developers.

1.) An introductory presentation about the technical area will be introduced by experts
2.) EOSC-hub communities will introduce the problems/requirements they have to address 
3.) Q&A session to identify solutions for the problems raised and discuss about the follow up.

EOSC-hub tech talk: AAI

Friday, June 15, 2018 - 11:00 to 12:30

This is the 2nd. EOSC-hub tech-talk focussing on Authentication Authorization Infrastructure services. The overal goal of this meeting is to bring together technical experts and scientific communities, discuss about the problems/requirements raised by EOSC-hub communities, and identify solutions for them.

During the meeting:

1.) An introductory presentation about the technical area will be introduced by AAI experts
2.) EOSC-hub communities will introduce the problems/requirements they have to address 
3.) Q&A session to identify solutions for the problems raised and discuss about the follow up.

How to make training FAIR

Monday, June 4, 2018 - 09:00 to Thursday, June 7, 2018 - 14:00

Invited contribution to the satellite workshop to the ELIXIR annual meeting on “How to make training FAIR”. The fourth ELIXIR All Hands meeting will take place 4 -7 June 2018, bringing together members of the ELIXIR community from across the ELIXIR Nodes, and collaborators from partner organisations, in order to review ELIXIR achievements and activities so far and discuss plans for the future. The All Hands also acts as the ELIXIR-EXCELERATE Annual General Meeting.

Towards cultural change in data management - data stewardship in practice

Thursday, May 24, 2018 - 09:30 to 18:00

About the workshop​

During this event, we will explore these issues. First, Danny Kingsley from the University of Cambridge will speak about research integrity and research reproducibility as the drivers for better data stewardship practices. This will be followed by case studies from TU Delft and from other organisations about the practical implementation of data stewardship. Subsequently, participants will be invited to take part in smaller focus groups and workshops on the topic. Finally, Kim Huijpen from the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU) will speak about rewarding researchers for doing quality research.

Who should come?

  • Research support staff caring about embedding good data management practices
  • Researchers interested in hearing about the benefits of good data management
  • Senior administrative staff
  • Funders and policy makers
  • Anyone willing to contribute to the discussion about cultural change in data management

FitSM webinar for the CORBEL community

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 - 15:00 to Friday, April 27, 2018 - 13:39

To meet customer needs and provide valuable services, it is important to maintain a high quality of service, which requires a well-structured approach to how the service is managed. Existing approaches to formal IT Service Management (ITSM), such as ITIL and the ISO/IEC 20000 standard are useful but not always well suited to the challenges of providing distributed services, especially federated environments, and can often be seen as overly complex.
