30 June 2020 - 09:00 to 11:00
Amsterdam, Netherlands


The SSH Open Marketplace has been in development  for over a year now. A preference for the agile approach and UX best practice means we’ve involved end users as much as possible up to this point via workshops, interviews, brainstorming sessions and prioritisation meetings.

When we release the alpha version in June 2020, we’ll want yet more user feedback and engagement. And that's what this workshop is about.  We've arranged a two hour slot during the proceedings of the ICTeSSH 2020 workshop in Amsterdam. In that time we'll be looking to:

  • Raise awareness of how the SSH Open Marketplace can help researchers in their daily activities and  supplement the existing EOSC services
  • Collect feedback from the SSH research community on the functionality and content of the SSH Open Marketplace


We're also looking for official testers to try out the Marketplace beforehand and report back on the day. Click here for all the details and to apply. If you're selected, we'll pay your registration and travel expenses!
