"eInfraCentral: Joining up service catalogues – towards
a European e-infrastructure market place"
Presenter: Annabel Grant (GÉANT)
The development of eInfrastructure services has matured over the years to provide a portfolio of services targeted at the Research & Education sector, however access to information about these services across Europe is disparate and varies dramatically. The eInfraCentral project aims to provide a simple to use one-stop-shop for services across the community to make it easier to find, select and use eInfrastructure Services – particularly in the long-tail of research where access is less well managed.
eInfraCentral will be a key component of a wider push towards a European Open Science cloud (EOSC) which aims to strengthen Europe's position in data-driven innovation, to improve competitiveness and cohesion and to help create a Digital Single Market. EOSC will create a federated, globally accessible, multidisciplinary environment where researchers, innovators, companies and citizens can publish, find, use and reuse each other's data, tools, publications and other outputs for research, innovation and educational purposes. This talk will demonstrate how joining up e-infrastructure service catalogues will lead to a “market place” of services benefitting a wide range of users from across Europe.
The mission of PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe) is to enable high impact scientific discovery and engineering research and development across all disciplines to enhance European competitiveness for the benefit of society. PRACE seeks to realise this mission by offering world class computing and data management resources and services through a peer review process.
PRACE also seeks to strengthen the European users of HPC in industry through various initiatives. PRACE has a strong interest in improving energy efficiency of computing systems and reducing their environmental impact.
In this talk the organisation of PRACE and the PRACE services will be presented. Some examples will illustrate the impact of PRACE.
This presentation will provide an overview about the GÉANT network, its Global Research collaborations and the services, how to open networks for Open Science.
