Welcome to PLAN-E

News: PLAN-E invited to present its view on the EOSC (European Open Science Cloud) at the invitation-only event on the EOSC in Brussels, June 12.

The PLAN-E plenary meeting last April 27, 28 2017, in Poznan was well attended. On the agenda was the European Open Science Cloud. Opening key note was given by Augusto Burgueño Arjona, Head of Unit C1 (e-Infrastructure and Science Cloud). The presentations given at that event are on line now.

News: Next PLAN-E plenary will be hosted by the eScience Center in Oxford (UK), scheduled for the September-November 2017 time frame. Final dates will be announced soon.

DANS (NL) and SSI (UK) organised a workshop titked “Sustainable Software Sustainability” March 7-9 2017, The Hague. The report from this event is scheduled for June 20th and will then be available on this website.

Plan-E White Paper now on line! (see under documents).

PLAN-E is working on a list of qualified eScience experts for use by the Commission. If you think you would qualify, please send your information and qualifications to p.aerts at esciencecenter in nl.

NLeSC and DANS published a policy awareness document on the importance of Research Software and Sustainability

ePLAN, the Platform of eScience/Data Research Centers in The Netherlands, published a survey report on the Dutch national ICT-infrastructure. Although the document is in Dutch, you may be able to pick up some interesting elements.

See what happened during the meeting of PLAN-E with Robert-Jan Smits (DG Research&Innovation) last Thursday March 10th in Amsterdam. Details here

PLAN-E is a new Platform of National eScience Centers in Europe. The Platform unites the efforts of escience groups across Europe in order to strengthen the European position in the escience domain.

eScience is loosely defined as the working domain in between science/research and ICT+e-Infrastructures and encompasses Computational Research and Data Science. More can be found in the Terms of Reference.

PLAN-E presented itself during the IEEE eScience meeting in Munich, 31/8-4/9 2015, by an introductory presentation at the conference and through a full day workshop. The presentations will be uploaded shortly and then be available under “documents”. Documantation of the IEEE escience conference can be found on their website: IEEE eScience Conference. Details of the workshop can be found at: PLAN-E workshops@Munich.

Presentations of the 3rd and 2nd Plenary available under “Documents”.

PLAN-E addresses:

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

To this end PLAN-E organizes a series of meetings, at least twice annually.
