WP7 Training & WP 1 Hackathon

Technical experts from EOSC-Life infrastructures who have ESFRI-related data sets or workflows that they want to deploy onto the cloud in the mid- to long-term are invited to this internal event in Berlin.

In the hackathon we hope to bring together individuals interested in common data types (e.g. genomics) but who may originate from different communities (e.g. plant genomics and rare diseases for instance). Cooperative problem solving at this hackathon event should help towards building the overall technical expertise across the ESFRIs. Target attendees are technical experts working in the infrastructures who will bring along ESFRI-related data sets or workflows, which they are looking to deploy onto the cloud in the mid- to long-term.

The aim of the event is to:

  1. Equip attendees to support their infrastructures/demonstrators with the necessary skills to implement their proposals
  2. Promote knowledge exchange  – e.g. image based methods – shared on a thematic basis – among data experts
  3. Network – build a support team
  4. Deliver best practice


The expectation is that attendees will:

  1. Have an intent to deploy
  2. Have a use case
  3. Have completed the training or have prior experience that is equivalent
  4. Spend 60% of the time coding.

Essential information:

  1. Location: Fraunhofer Forum in central Berlin, Anna-Louisa-Karsch-Straße 2, 10178 Berlin
