Klaus Tochtermann (ZBW) from the GeRDI team will talk at the European Computer Science Summit 2018 about “Towards the European Open Science Cloud – The role of Computer Science”.
The idea of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is to leverage European research data management to the next level of excellence. The EOSC will connect existing and future research data centres with one another and will offer a free point of use, open and seamless services for storage, management, analysis and re-use of research data. Based on the experiences made during the German contribution to the EOSC, namely the GeRDI project (Generic research data infrastructure), and during the international GoFAIR initiative, the talk will highlight technical challenges from a computer science perspective. This will include the design of a micro-service architecture, the role of standards for metadata, the design of a central search index to allow cross-repository search and retrieval as well as the role of large storage and computing capacities.
