R&I in the feld of e-Infrastructures

Friday 11 September 2015

On Friday the 11th of September a workshop on "Research and Innovation in the field of e-Infrastructures" was co-organised by the Georgian Research and Educational Networking Association (GRENA), the International Centre for Advancement of Research Technology and Innovation (ICARTI), the Ivane Javakhishvili Tbilisi State University and the EECA Cluster

The participants of the workshop had the opportunity to receive valuable information on the activities of projects such as GEANT and CLARIN, which focus on research and education networking and services, and examine various e-infrastructure research tools. The Status of e-infrastructure services in Eastern Partnership was also addressed during the workshop, as well as the formation of a new research environment to be developed through remotely shared access to research facilities (data, network) with the participation of EECA countries

Collaboration under H2020 in the field of e-infrastructures was highlighted by the organizers, through examination of the 2016-2017 Workprogramme pillars.

The workshop allowed participants to discuss with European experts, exchange views on the issue of collaboration under the umbrella of e-infrastructure and explore among them opportunities for future collaboration.
