What is ENVRI community meeting

The environmental research infrastructure landscape is evolving constantly. Moreover, not all the Environmental Research Infrastructures are directly participating in the ENVRI-FAIR project. The Open ENVRI community meeting aims at enabling dialogue and better facilitation of the project results beyond the project consortium and the participating research infrastructures. It aims at informing the community as well as new projects and initiatives emerging in the environmental landscape about the latest developments, highlighting how they can benefit from them. Last but not least, the meetings connects the community with other relevant initiatives and projects. The open ENVRI community meeting is organized within the ENVRI week (Dresden, Feb 3-9, 2020). More information about the ENVRI week is available here.

Angus Whyte (Digital Curation Centre), Project Partner of FAIRsFAIR, will do a 15-min presentation about " FAIRsFAIR in the EOSC ecosystem", focused on how FAIRsFAIR is contributing to the EOSC implementation.
