Learn from world-changing thinkers and innovators in Open Science and e-Infrastructures
The 1st Eastern Partnership E-Infrastructure Conference (EaPEC 2016) aims to serve as a platform for collaboration on policy and research and supports community building in e-Infrastructures between the Eastern Partnership region and the EU member states.
This two-day conference will focus on e-Infrastructures for Open Science in Europe. Speakers will lead interactive discussions about Open Science and foster the exchange of ideas in research areas such as physics and seismology, biomedical sciences, robotics, HPC and data analytics, climate and ecology.
In our keynote, the Human Brain Project will present us with cutting-edge, ICT-based scientific Research Infrastructure for brain research, cognitive neuroscience and brain-inspired computing. The Human Brain Project (HBP) is a European Commission Future and Emerging Technologies Flagship.
Enlighten Your Research (EYR), the internationally renowned program to encourage collaboration between researchers using specialised IT and network services, will have its award ceremony for its regional EYR @ EAP programme in a dedicated session on Day 2 of the conference.
EaPEC 2016 is organised by the EU-funded project EaPConnect and welcomes policy makers, researchers, students, and experts on networking and high performance computing for research and education from EaP countries and all over the world.
The conference will be hosted by GRENA, the Georgian network for research and education and beneficiary partner of the EaPConnect project, in cooperation with the University of Georgia.
The EaPConnect project is funded by the European Union
