The protection of the marine environment is important to ensure that there are marine resources for future generations. Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) are a key management tool to support the conservation of marine resources. The Convention of Biological Diversity Aichi target 11 states that by 2020, at least 10 per cent of coastal and marine areas, especially areas of particular importance for biodiversity and ecosystem services, are conserved through ecologically representative and well-connected systems of protected areas.

Despite the success of the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI), fragmentation across domains still produces repetitive and isolated solutions. In line with the overall ASTERICS – OBELICS objectives, this workshop aims at building bridges between ESFRI projects, concerned scientific communities, e-infrastructures, industries and further consortia, and to call them to action for the implementation of the EOSC for data interoperability in the astrophysics and astroparticle physics related disciplines.
The 2017 Technology Exchange will feature presentations, panels, birds-of-a-feature and working meetings, tutorials, and workshops on a broad spectrum of topics related to advanced networking, information security, trust and identity, cloud implementation, and applications for research support.

The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) aims to provide by 2020 a virtual repository to access data from publicly funded research. The EOSCpilot is a two year project to support the first phase of development of EOSC. The EOSCpilot data interoperability task aims to establish principles, propose recommendations and demonstrate how FAIR data hosted by domain specific data repositories can be exposed to EOSC to be used and reused by EOSC services and users.
EOSCpilot has established a Governance Development Forum (EGDF) to enable all different stakeholders to contribute to the development of the EOSC governance framework. The EOSCpilot Governance Development Forum (EGDF) is mandated to function and support the establishment of the EOSC. This workshop is part of the forum activities.
EOSC Science Demonstrators and Pilots, 13 September 2017, Pisa
This event is the first Service Provider Workshops of EOSCpilot. It is designed to bring together Science Demonstrators and Service/Resource Providers as well as partners from the Service Pilots and Interoperability tasks to facilitate requirements gathering for EOSCpilot and enable successful delivery to the Science Demonstrators and provide input to EOSC as a whole.
Open Science Fair 2017 (OSFair2017) is having its first opening international conference in Athens, Greece, 6-8 September 2017.
The three-day conference will gather policy makers, funders, publishers and content providers, research infrastructures/communities, researchers, libraries, institutions and innovators, offering unique insights about e-infrastructures and services, policies as guidance for good practices, research flows and new types of activities (disseminate, mine, review, assess, etc.).
The Workflow management with CWL is an hands-on workshop that will provide an opportunity for participants to become familiar with analysis pipeline deployment with CWL, and to develop a CWL implementation for their own workflow.
The workshop will be hosted by EMBL Heidelberg and co-sponsored by HD-HuB, ELIXIR, and BioExcel.
Learn how to do FAIR compliant professional Data Management.
Experience and practice with the latest software to manage and analyse data.
On 12 June, the Commission organises the European Open Science Cloud Summit in Brussels.
The summit will be Europe’s moment of commitment to the EOSC and it will generate a number of concrete EOSC Statements for implementation. By reviewing key areas of EOSC implementation and endorsing the EOSC statements, participants will take upon themselves to make the EOSC a reality by 2020.
In the context of TNC17 - the Art of Creative Networking - a dedicated session on the European Open Science Cloud will set up a discussion with three exponents of the open data domain, arise from a set of these key questions: What do researchers and research support providers really need? What are the key factors towards the realization of the European Open Science Cloud?
