    Research data infrastructures for Environmental related Societal Challenges Workshop

    Paris, France

    Are you concerned with the complexity of discovering, accessing and processing big data to address environmental related challenges? Are you interested in services related to climate change, food security or marine resources conservation? The international workshop on “Data infrastructures for Environmental related Societal Challenges” to be held on 22 September 2015 in Paris will illustrate data value requirements in the specific context of developing food-, marine- and climate- services. Three keynote speeches on the climate, marine and agricultural challenges will be given respectively by Sylvie Joussaume (IPSL), Julian Barbiere (UNESCO-IOC) and Michèle Tixier Boichard (INRA). The workshop will be closed by a panel that will explore how to make an effective and coordinated use of the services provided by existing infrastructures in meeting the addressed societal challenges. The panel will also discuss the role that international initiatives, like RDA, Belmont Forum and GEO-GEOSS, can play in helping this process.
