GARR hosts the EaPConnect e-Health workshop in Rome!
On 30-31 October 2018, the EaPConnect project and GARR will host the workshop “Biomedical collaborations over National Research and Education networks: success stories and best practices”.
This two-day event aims to discuss the existing activities NRENs are carrying out to support the biomedical research community. Case studies and best practices will be presented by the most advanced organisations in this area, and will feature different funding and organisation models, illustrate best practices and share lessons learned.
The event is organised as a part of the EC-funded Eastern Partnership Connect project.
EAPConnect aims to establish and operate a high-capacity broadband internet network for research and education (R&E) across six EaP partner countries in the EU Eastern Neighbourhood; with the objective to integrate them in the pan-European GÉANT network, and facilitate collaboration with local scientists, students and academics, also through the deployment of shared services.
The workshop will address executives in the young National Research and Education Networks from the Eastern Partnership countries, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.
The programme will feature presentations of case studies by NREN executives and project coordinators, and an interactive session including Eastern Partnership and EU NRENs, which will focus on funding and organisation models, offered services and differences across countries. The ultimate objective is to share the lessons learned through the most advanced experiences in this field and inspire and guide the NRENs who, currently, are not offering services to the biomedical and e-Health community with successful experiences in this field and models that can adapt in their country’s scenario. Both technical and political aspects, including relations with national institutions, will be covered in the discussion.
Participation in the event is by invitation
