SSHOC at EOSC-hub week

During this event SSHOC organised the session My Cloud, Your Cloud, Our Cloud. EOSC-hub is the central EU EOSC e-Infrastructure provisioning project, that is to provide research communities with general data management services. For EOSC-hub the ESFRI cluster projects (or thematic cluster projects) - whereof SSHOC is the one project representing the SSH - play an important role in gathering requirements and engaging with the research communities. Therefore the cluster projects were in this year’s EOSChub week invited to help organise a number of sessions to present and discuss a number of in their view relevant topics in the research infrastructure landscape with EOSChub staff.

SSHOC presented a poster titled Realising the Social Sciences and Humanities for the European Open Science Cloud - EOSC Hub during the EOSC-hub week 2019. The poster can be downloaded here.


About the event

Following the success of last year's edition, EOSC-hub Week is back in its 2nd installment which 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.

SSHOC will present its poster and it will be involved in the session about "EOSC for Social Sciences and Humanities", taking place on Wednesday 10 April 2019, 11:30 - 13:00, Room: Prague A+B.

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.

As the newly launched EOSC gains momentum, it's now the right time to get involved. Register now and find your way to becoming a first-mover as a service provider or reap the rewards of being an early adopter!
