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.

  • Save-the-date! 12th PLAN-E plenary in Finland (at CSC), on 12-13 May 2020. Practical info here.
  • On Friday, December 6 2019, long-time PLAN-E member Lajos Bálint (KIFÜ) has unexpectedly passed away.

  • 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.
