The main goal of the Science Mesh Workshop "Global Platform for Scientific Collaboration", co-located at the CS3 2022 Congress, is to dialogue with early adopters and potential vendors that will contribute to the final development, deployment and adoption of the Science Mesh. The Science Mesh is a global collaboration service for researchers, educators, data curators and analysts based on OCM (Open Cloud Mesh) and CS3APIs (Connect Storage and Application Providers). It provides an interoperable platform to easily share & deploy application and software components, while providing rich collaborative workflows.
The day will also bring out insights around what are the needs of ESFRI European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures clusters and their related infrastructures in terms of data synch and share. The ESFRI clusters, from a broad spectrum of scientific disciplines, have strong links with research communities, manage significant data volumes, and develop/operate discipline-specific data analytics tools, while facilitation access to research data for incorporation into EOSC. We will understand what are these challenges and how the Science Mesh can support the ESFRI in overcoming the referred challenges, while contributing to Open Science.
This workshop is a follow up from last year workshop “Moving Towards the Adoption Phase for Science Mesh”, co-located at the CS3 2021 Congress.
