FAIR-EASE and Blue-Cloud: Joint workshop at the Open Science FAIR 2023

The iconic initiative of OpenAIRE returns to its vibrant face-to-face format for its fourth edition in Madrid, Spain from 25-27 September. This year's event will provide the opportunity to meet in person once again, thanks to the collaboration between OpenAIRE and its Spanish NOAD, the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT).

The primary goal of this #OSFAIR2023 is to contemplate the future of Open Science and determine how to work together to pave the way for future generations. The conference aims to unite individuals from various communities and backgrounds worldwide to identify areas of collaboration, share successful practices, and create the space for collaborative interfaces.

We are thrilled to take part in the event this year, with Lighthing talks, a Poster presentation, and a Joint Workshop with the Blue-Cloud 2026 project.
