CS3MESH4EOSC is organising a 2-hour session "Science Mesh – Global Platform for Scientific Collaboration”, on 9th June from 9:30 till 12:00. Please find the draft agenda below.
The Science Mesh is a federation of distributed but interconnected data storage and sharing services, known as Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) services. Data storage, access and synchronisation services based on cloud platforms from different providers, known “as nodes”, are interoperable on the data exchange, federated data sharing and users’ management level. Furthermore, the applications including Data Science, research data management and FAIRification, collaborative documents editing and large data transfers solutions has been made available across the nodes in mesh and EFSS technologies.
Within Science Mesh, the users can easily share and manage data through the familiar interfaces of their institutional EFSS services and collaborate with colleagues from other organisations. Moreover, cross-project and cross-infrastructure data-based collaboration and massive data transfer and exchange are possible.
The Science Mesh services are not specific to any particular research discipline: they address the well-recognised, common needs of a wide array of users (incl. academia and research industries) which are interested in scientific data-based and data-centric collaboration.
In this session, attendees will understand the functionality and technical innovation of the Science Mesh. Additionally, thanks to demonstrations, attendees will become aware how the already-integrated data services have been used to address challenges by real communities. They will also learn how they can join the mesh, contribute their nodes and sites to it and - at their will - get practical information about joining the mesh.
