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. A recent quote on eScience by Patrick Aerts says:
“eScience enhances science by maximizing the potential science output through the optimal use/deployment of ICT and e-infrastructures”
More can be found in the Terms of Reference.
- 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.
