Sensitive Data Management and EUDAT Services

Monday, March 29, 2021 - 09:00 to 12:00

This new course on data management is specifically targeted to give some guidance on the management of EUDAT services when dealing with sensitive data. It will last for half a day (3 hours) and will have a dedicated hands-on part where you will be guided on the use of tools to help you manage your sensitive data in a secure way.

This course is sponsored by the CompBioMed European Centre of Excellence (H2020), where SURF is a core partner.

WeNMR/HADDOCK workshop at ISGC2021 in Taipei

Monday, March 22, 2021 - 09:00

Structural biology aims at characterizing the structural (atomic coordinates) and dynamic (fluctuation of atomic coordinates over time) properties of biological macromolecules. Gaining insight into 3D structures of biomolecules is critical for understanding the vast majority of cellular processes, with direct application in health and food sciences.

Since 2010, the WeNMR project ( has implemented numerous web-based services to facilitate the use of advanced computational tools by researchers in the field, using the HTC infrastructure provided by EGI. These services have been further developed in subsequent initiatives under H2020 projects are a now operating as Thematic Services in the EOSC-Hub project (, with the HADDOCK portal ( sending >10 millions of jobs and using ~4000 CPU-years per year.

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.

Online Training on Data Analytics: How to skip high-volume data transfer and access free computing resources for your CMIP analyses

Monday, March 8, 2021 - 15:00 to Tuesday, March 9, 2021 - 17:30

The infrastructure for the European Network of Earth System modelling (ENES) has a new service for you! Thanks to the ENES Climate Analytics Service (ECAS), which is also one of the thematic services included in the EOSC-hub service portfolio, you can load just the data you need and straightforwardly process them. With this free of charge service, you can request computing time through the IS-ENES infrastructure project, which hosts and maintains more than 6 Petabytes of CMIP data as the European part of the Earth System Grid Federation (ESGF).

Join our online training on March 8-9 and learn how to run your Jupyter notebooks at the German Climate Computing Center (DKRZ) and the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change Foundation (CMCC), two of the IS-ENES compute service providers and ESGF data centers. 

FitSM Foundation Training - Remote - 24-25 Feb 2021 - EOSC Community

Wednesday, February 24, 2021 - 09:15 to Thursday, February 25, 2021 - 14:00

IT Service Management is a discipline that helps provide services with a focus on customer needs and in a professional manner. It is widely used in the commercial and public sectors to manage IT services of all types, but current solutions are very heavyweight with high barriers to entry.

FitSM is an open, lightweight standard for professionally managing services. It brings order and traceability to a complex area and provides simple, practical support in getting started with ITSM. FitSM training and certification provide crucial help in delivering services and improving their management. It provides a common conceptual and process model, sets out straightforward and realistic requirements and links them to supporting materials.

Through FitSM, the aim is to conduct effective IT service management in the EOSC federated environment and achieving a baseline level of ITSM, which can also act in support of ‘management interoperability’ in federated environments (e.g. EOSC).

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.
