EMBL, Heidelberg, Germany ( ATC Klaus Tschira Auditorium )

Cloud computing, innovation and open science were the keywords at the Open Day Event: Towards the European Open Science Cloud. Organised by the Helix Nebula Initiative and hosted by the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), the event saw over 100 representatives coming together from some of the most renowned international research organisations, e-infrastructures, cloud projects, cloud service providers from both the public and private sector, IT advisory bodies as well as funding agencies.

The main objective for the open day was to build consensus on a model for the European Open Science Cloud that could be widely accepted across Europe’s flagship research infrastructures, their public and private sector user communities and value chains, the long tail of science, service providers and funding agencies.
