Research Data infrastructures for Environmental related Societal Challenges

22 septembre 2015 - Paris, France

Publié le 25 août 2015, par Thérèse Hameau

Workshop Objectives :

Environmental data from various monitoring sources are becoming bigger, faster, and diverse than ever before. Transforming this ’data deluge’ into scientific evidence for policy making or business opportunities requires to level up online capacities to discover, access, and integrate environmental data, knowledge and processing facilities in a distributed and globalised context. This requires a leap in the way scientific knowledge is produced and business models are conceived. It also brings the challenge of developing truly interoperable and easy exploitable enabling e-infrastructures.

This workshop will illustrate data value requirements in the specific context of developing food-, marine- and climate- services and exemplify several existing or planned e-infrastructures supporting user-oriented workflows for these domains contributing to environmental applications. Building on current development in international initiatives such as the Research Data Alliance (RDA), the Belmont Forum (BF) and the Group on Earth Observations (GEO), the workshop will be an opportunity to discuss trends of the current global landscape of e-Infrastructures for environmental data management and exploitation and for enhancing collaboration on a global level in support of of sharing research and public sector data. The workshop will also identify opportunities and gaps to better match data and IT supply with the growing demand for services in the fields of food security, marine resources conservation and the transition to climate-resilient and low-carbon societies and economies.
