    Charles University in Prague 23-24 April 2014

    EUDAT is helping to achieve the vision of a European Data e-infrastructure by providing a sustainable platform of technologies, tools and services driven by user needs. Communities and users have always been central to EUDAT and the third in its series of dedicated User Forums took place at Charles University in Prague 23rd – 24th April 2014.

    The Call for Collaboration projects launched by EUDAT in early 2014 was a resounding success with over 30 applications from a vast range of scientific communities covering, but not limited to, life sciences, atmospheric sciences, marine biology, physics, chemistry, nano-science and materials science, medical science, biodiversity and climate modelling. The selected projects were focal to the User Forum and interventions covered how these communities will engage with EUDAT and use its data services.

    Community representatives explained why they are signing up to EUDAT including the fact that stakeholders want to use existing European services, resources and skills while at the same time users are seeking common standards & platforms that simplify the efficient exchange & re-use of data. Another point underlined was the community need for support from IT professional supported by a pan-European network of trusted centres. EUDAT in a nutshell, no?

    This edition also featured how EUDAT supports communities and projects on the EC's Open Access policy, Open Research Pilot and Data Management Plans in Horizon2020 and an in-depth session on Policy, Certification and Sustainability.
