An introduction into FAIR Research Data Management

Tuesday, March 16, 2021 - 12:00 to 13:30

Research Data Management (RDM) is a crucial component of research integrity. More and more funding bodies and research institutes require safely stored data nowadays, but data should also be open for sharing or available for the reproduction of research. The guiding principle in this respect is “as open as possible, as closed as necessary.” The Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reuse of the digital research data, or in other words their FAIRness, is another important principle on which good RDM should be built. In this interactive webinar DANS (Data Archiving and Networked Services in the Netherlands) will provide an introduction to the importance of Research Data Management (RDM). Topics like RDM policies, the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), open and FAIR data, research integrity, data sharing aspects, storing data in trusted repositories, and Data Management Plans (DMPs) will be discussed.

GBIF Community Webinar

Wednesday, December 9, 2020 - 15:00 to 16:30

GBIF community webinars aim to improve sustained communication and interaction between the Secretariat and the broader GBIF community, particularly (but not exclusively) the GBIF nodes. By keeping a keen eye on new projects and initiatives within the context of the GBIF strategic plan and annual work programme and implementation plan, we hope that these discussions spark new collaboration and engagement opportunities across the network.

How to use Accelerated Computing in EGI Federated Cloud

Friday, November 27, 2020 - 10:00 to 11:00

Using GPUs to accelerate computation is demanded by many user communities, especially for applications related to image processing, machine learning and so on. 

Accessing federated clouds in EGI with VMOps Dashboard

Wednesday, November 25, 2020 - 14:00 to 15:00

The VMOps dashboard provides users with a set of graphical interfaces to high-level services, in order to manage Virtual Machines and Virtualized Appliances on federated cloud infrastructures, particularly on the EGI Federated Cloud and community-specific cloud federations.

The EGI Federated Cloud brings together resources from IaaS providers, built around open standards, focusing on the requirements of the scientific community. Rising above the challenge of bringing together distributed platforms, it features a unified authentication and authorization mechanism, a shared image catalogue, centralized monitoring and accounting, and, through the VMOps dashboard, a centralized way of deploying, managing, and accessing VMs and resources. Users are provided at a glance with an overview of the cloud with respect to provider availability based on their current status, and a 4-step wizard to deploy topologies based on the VM images and the VOs each provider supports, thus significantly reducing the burden of searching for the appropriate resources.
