      Session 1 - EOSC and data interoperability

      The first session of the e-IRG Workshop under Portuguese EU Presidency introduces the topic of FAIR Digital Objects (FDOs), which bring together all essential information about a digital object (data, code or other research output) in one logical entity. A key element of an FDO besides its representation of its encoded content in a standard format and its sufficient metadata and documentation is a Persistent Identifier (PID), which enables unique and persistent identification and supports referencing, linking, tracing and reusability. The session will address the need for an EU-wide service for Persistent Identifiers (PIDs) for all researchers and their stable repositories. Furthermore, there is a need for a semantic mapping framework as addition to the FAIR landscape of semantic artefacts to reap the full benefits of FAIR data. Such e-Infrastructure elements are vital to achieve stability, interoperability and sustainability of the digital objects space in the current fragmented landscape, and to be able to support data traceability, trust, and sovereignty. Thus, there is a need for a “by-design” approach and coordination on these e-infrastructures elements.

      Session 2 - Addressing climate change - the digital aspects

      The session deals with the growing importance of e-Infrastructures for the society and in particular for climate change. On one hand, the digital infrastructures with their computing power and simulations are contributing to better understanding the climate future, and also facilitate tools to fight and reduce some of its effects, such as wildfires that caused unprecedented damages in Australia, California and Siberia. On the other hand, e-Infrastructures have a significant carbon footprint and thus Green IT and energy efficient data centres are thus of particular importance.

      Session 3 - Going beyond: How policies can shape the development of research infrastructure facilitating data sovereignty, innovation and cultural change

      Currently the development of research infrastructures including e-Infrastructures is widely driven by direct demand or interests, rather than strategic planning. In the face of the upcoming effects of climate change and other grand challenges it is needed to have a more strategic approach to layout the European Research Area to be able to answer upcoming challenges. The use of data is central and crucial in this approach. The workshop session aims to provide a foresight discussion addressing the data aspect from different angles; the technical prospect, the funders perspective and the aspect of human centricity in all of that.
