On the 22nd of September, Damien Lecarpentier, EUDAT Project Director, will coordinate the "Service orientation to data and high-performance computing infrastructures" stream at the "e-Infrastructures & RDA for Data intensive science" workshop in Paris. With a strong focus on service orientation, the workshop brings together leading e-Infrastructure initiatives to discuss computing and data management trends and challenges, and present available and planned services to address these trends and challenges. The workshop also seeks to identify collaboration opportunities in the emerging digital single market, in particular in the context of the upcoming European research cloud which has been called for by the EC, and at global level between European stakeholders and leading initiatives in the US, Japan, and Australia.

21 October 2015, Lisbon. On October 21st, EUDAT together with PRACE and EGI is organising a networking session at ICT2015. This session will connect experts from European computing and data infrastructures, and representatives from scientific user communities, to explore ways in which major European e-infrastructures can work together to better support Open Science. The participants in the session will gain a better understanding of the potential as well as the constraints of the current ecosystem to evolve towards High Performance Data Analytics. They will leave the session with the start of an action list for their own organisations / countries to make this new field a corner stone of European competitiveness.
