PT C/2: Data Sharing - Regional Initiatives
14:00 - 15:30

Data Sharing - Regional Initiatives.


This section will present – covering important world regions – various infrastructure initiatives that either support implementing the open science principles or that rely on these principles to support excellent science. These initiatives share a common interest in technological support and promoting data sharing. They include, for example, the EOSC from Europe, ARDC from Australia, the African Open Science Platform, the Chinese CSTCloud, and the initiatives supported by the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) in the USA. The aim is to relate the different approaches to each other, to identify commonalities and differences, and to show the impact on the adoption of open science by scientific communities.

  • Rosie Hicks, Chief Executive Officer, Australian Research Data Commons
  • Christine Kirkpatrick, Division Director, Research Data Services, San Diego Supercomputer Center, UC San Diego, USA
  • Suzanne Dumouchel, Member of the Board of Directors of the EOSC Association
  • More Speakers TBA


Parallel Theme C: Research Infrastructures and Sharing Scientific Data Globally  
This Parallel Theme looks at RIs and sharing scientific data from a local to a global perspective. Instead of analysing what kind of data are managed by the research infrastructures, we will look at the developments taking place to share and reuse these data. In three sub-sessions we will look at: 1) What is happening at a global scale to bring initiatives from different regions in the world together. What are their interactions? 2) What is being done in the different regions of the world, that is relevant for data sharing, preserving, storing etc. to come to a “Web of FAIR data”? 3) Examples of these developments taking place in the different countries.
