FAIR-EASE Architecture Blueprint Brainstorm in Ostende
Last 8 of November, the FAIR-EASE consortium partners working on the FAIR-EASE Interdisciplinary Data Discovery and Access Service, met in Ostend, Belgium, hosted by the VLIZ premises (Vlaams Instituut voor de Zee), the Flanders Marine Institute, to set the basis for the future work by:
- creating a common ground of understanding with streamlined terminology and aligning on a common view
- defining roles and responsibilities
- identify requirements
- understanding the expectations from the FAIR-EASE Use Cases
It was a chance to share each partner's view on the objectives and relations with the other work packages of the project, and to identify possible issue and bottlenecks to address them already in the initial phases of the project.
Starting from an internal harmonisation of the views among the people involved in the project is vital, in order to reach the FAIR-EASE objectives.
The Data Discovery and Access interdisciplinary service which will provide users with an easy and FAIR service for discovery and access to multidisciplinary and aggregated data sets (in situ datasets, satellite datasets, omics experiments and model outputs) as managed and provided by a range of existing environmental data infrastructures.
