Green Deal Data Odyssey: Unveiling Opportunities for the Geoscience Community

This dynamic town hall meeting brings together data space developers, representatives of data space projects, data scientists, and geoscientists for an open and insightful exchange on the current landscape of Data Space initiatives. It’s an initiative pushed by the GREAT project. CREAF researcher Joan Masó is taking part in the dissusions together with other data scientists and data space representatioves.

What to expect:
  •  •  Unveiling Opportunities: Discover real-world applications of the Green Deal Data Space and other data space initiatives relevant to geosciences.
  •  •  Bridging the Gap: Participate in a lively panel discussion to explore the strengths and weaknesses of existing data spaces and brainstorm ways to overcome them.
  •  •  Collaboration and Innovation: Uncover exciting opportunities for cooperation and identify paths for innovation within data-driven geoscience research.
  •  •  Shaping the Future: Contribute to shaping the future of data spaces and their impact on the field of geoscience.


Confirmed speakers
  • • Angeliki Adamaki | Project Manager at Lund University – ICOS Carbon Portal
  • • Nigel Rees | Senior Research Environment Specialist (Geophysics) at Australian National University | National Computational Infrastructure
  • • Anne Fouilloux | Senior Research Engineer at Simula Research Laboratory | PANGEO
