What will these three projects show within the common space?:

Sci-GaIA will demonstrate how African scientists can use Science Gateways, access remote data and promote access to their open data and how NRENs can set up secure access to international research e-Infrastructures.

TANDEM will give concrete scientific examples in the field of tele-detection.

MAGIC will show the use of applications running on its collaborative platform, demonstrating how these real time services foster and promote scientific collaboration between international research groups.

Aiming to promote the cross border collaboration and discuss about the development, deployment and operation of research e-Infrastructures in different regions of the world, the three projects will also carry out a network session that will be conducted as an open forum in order to share ideas, experiences, best practices and challenges around e-infrastructures related topics. Entitled as “Towards global research e-Infrastructures for 2020 and beyond” .the discussions of the forum will focus on: e-Infrastructure policy development and international cooperation, the importance of promoting connectivity, global e-Infrastructure services and of identifying applications tailored to specific communities and regions, the importance of establishing agreements for Europe and other World Regions aiming at creating a marketplace of services and real-time applications for international and intercontinental research groups.
