The 4th GEO Data Technology Workshop this year is taking place in Vienna, Austria from 23-25 April 2019. The 2019 edition is dedicated to "The Era of Big EO Data" and focuses on exploring the best ways to make Earth Observations-based knowledge available for international policy frameworks.
GEO is the Group on Earth Observations, a unique global network connecting more than 100 national governments and 100 Earth Observation Organizations.Together, the GEO community is creating a Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) to better integrate observing systems and share data by connecting existing infrastructures using common standards.
During the session dedicated to "Innovative approaches and societal impact" on the 25th of April OCRE's project coordinator Andres Steijaert and Chris Atherton from GÉANT will present GÉANT's National Research and Education Networks and their Infrastructure support for global Cloud Computing, along with the Open Clouds for Research Environments Project (OCRE) and its opportunities for Researchers and Cloud Services Providers.
