PLAN-E is the “Platform of National eScience Centers in Europe”. PLAN-E unites the efforts of eScience organizations across Europe in order to strengthen the European position in the eScience domain.

  • The 11th Plenary meeting takes place in Lund (Sweden) on 16-17 October 2019. The workshop is hosted by eSSENCE. Details and registration info can be found here.
  • The first 2019 Plenary took place in Rome, 15-16 April 2019. Topics: Accelerating the EOSC, HPC in Europe and Cultural Heritage. See Program. Presentations all online (under “documents”).
  • Scheduled follow-up plenary meetings: Greece (April 2020)
  • In 2018, the PLAN-E Plenary took place under the umbrella of the IEEE eScience Conference, Amsterdam, in the form of a workshop.
  • PLAN-E invited to present its view on the European Open Science Cloud at the invitation-only event on the EOSC in Brussels, June 12.

PLAN-E convenes at least twice annually. PLAN-E addresses:

  • Knowledge exchange;
  • Data stewardship and Software sustainability;
  • Awareness creation through visible representation of PLAN-E;
  • Education and academic positioning of eScience researchers.

eScience is loosely defined as the working domain between academic research and ICT and digital infrastructure.
