Input from the marine community needed to shape the future of Blue-Cloud
The Blue-Cloud project, enlisted among the PHIDIAS synergies, aims to demonstrate the potential of federating Europe’s prime distributed marine data resources, HPC platforms and analytical services to set up a coherent cyberplatform provideing a single Research and Innovation hub for the marine research and the Blue Economy communities. PHIDIAS Ocean use case, aiming to improve the use of cloud services for marine data management, can be seen as one of the prototypes of the future Blue Cloud foreseen by the European Commission.
Last week the project launched an online consultation asking the marine community to help to shape the future of the “Blue-Cloud”, which will be an open, web-based cyberspace where marine researchers and innovators will come together to share data and advance ocean knowledge through collective intelligence.
Input from stakeholders is key to ensure that this ambitious initiative is shaped according to their needs and expectations from its outset, building a shared, co-created and collective vision. The contributions will be used to develop a Roadmap to 2030, a policy document providing the basis for the future strategic development of the Blue-Cloud well embedded as a leading system in the wider marine community, and as a component of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
The online consultation closes on Friday 6 November and will take you approximately 15 minutes.
