Primary tabs

Where: 
Barcelona, Spain
When: 
Wednesday, 7 March, 2012 to Thursday, 8 March, 2012

The 1st EUDAT User Forum took place on 7-8 March 2012 in Barcelona and gathered more than 60 participants, including representatives from 18 research communities across Europe. Since its start on the 1st of October 2011, EUDAT has been reviewing the approaches and requirements of research communities regarding the deployment and use of a cross-disciplinary and persistent data e-infrastructure. This analysis initially focused on a first subset of communities from linguistics (CLARIN), earth sciences (EPOS), climate sciences (ENES), environmental sciences (LIFEWATCH), and biological and medical sciences (VPH). The preliminary results of this analysis were presented at the 1st User Forum. Several user communities outside the EUDAT consortium also participated, presenting their data architectures and sharing the functionalities they would require from a common layer of data services.
