Assessing the FAIRness of a prototypical PaN instrument at BESSY II

Monday 15th November 2021 from 14:00 → 15:00 Europe / Berlin. Dr Markus Kubin and Dr Gerrit Günther employed the RDA’s FAIR Data Maturity Model to assess the FAIRness of data produced by a prototypical PaN instrument at the BESSY II synchrotron radiation facility and identified steps towards improving the FAIRness. Here a little more about our presenters: Dr Markus Kubin has a background in fundamental … Continue reading Assessing the FAIRness of a prototypical PaN instrument at BESSY II

Data Hub Use Cases for ExPaNDS and PaNOSC

Tuesday 16th Nov 2021 from 14:15 → 17:15 Europe/Stockholm Harvesting metadata from experiments requires an understanding of a particular experimental workflow and a deep integration to the control systems of the instruments to create “gluing tools” which can automatically extract relevant meta-data. The other aspect is the integration and use of metadata in downstream processing which can give immediate benefit to users. On the engineering side there is a desire … Continue reading Data Hub Use Cases for ExPaNDS and PaNOSC

Help Build an EOSC Environment

The EOSC Future project is looking for 200+ science champions to help co-design and finetune EOSC services and products. EOSC Future is an EU-funded project that will develop a European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) to strengthen European science. It will create a virtual environment where researchers can find, share and process interoperable data sets, publications, code and other research outputs. The EOSC environment will also … Continue reading Help Build an EOSC Environment

EGI: Running containers in your user space with udocker

23 Jun 2021, 13:00 BST / 14:00 CEST udocker enables the execution of docker containers in user space without requiring root privileges for installation or use. Udocker implements the pull, load, import and execution of containers by non-privileged users in Linux systems where docker is not available. It can be used in Linux batch systems and interactive clusters that are managed by other entities, such as … Continue reading EGI: Running containers in your user space with udocker
