How is Science Mesh Unlocking Scientific Collaboration? – A Podcast with Guido Aben from CS3MESH4EOSC and AARNet

CS3MESH4EOSC is kicking off its Podcast series with its very first episode, entitled “Science Mesh - Unlocking Scientific Collaboration Through a Sync and Share Interoperable Platform”, focused on the Science Mesh - a core initiative of the CS3MESH4EOSC project, which is connecting European Data within Europe and beyond.

Too easy and fair enough? - Blogpost from Adam Bell (AARNet) for the Digital Preservation Coalition

The role of the Science Mesh is to provide inherently findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR) cloud data storage and collaboration tools for researchers. The outcome is for interoperable research workspaces, data movement and management between research organisations. The work package to deliver this FAIR data capability for the Science Mesh is executed by Australian, Polish and German developers, and is project managed by AARNet.

Datacentre-less cloud for interoperability and no data sovereignty constraints: Cubbit in Science Mesh – An interview with Lorenzo Posani

Cloud computing has been revolutionizing the way small-medium enterprises (SMEs) and companies in general, use IT. SMEs are able to access high-end technology and information at an affordable cost. However, moving your data to the cloud has some associated risks, namely lack of control, privacy and legal risks.

Establishing trust between users based on sites federated in the Science Mesh to share resources

 

Establishing trust between users based on sites federated in the Science Mesh to share resources

The Science Mesh recently published a demonstration of a procedure to establish trust between users from various sites federated in the Science Mesh. It allows the users to share resources such as file and folder access or access to applications. While the demonstration is quite technical, a graphical user interface is not yet available for the functionality - the operations can be performed through a command line interface, as demonstrated in the demo video available below.

Blogpost: From endangered languages to the Science Mesh - petascale FAIR data repositories

The Science Mesh is a rich ecosystem for frictionless scientific collaboration and access to research services, where data, applications and computation are brought together to enable federated usage within and across scientific domains. The Science Mesh also encourages FAIR data practices and provides the opportunity for the user to both access to new research services, as well as contribute to the development of the Science Mesh itself. Marco La Rosa, from the Pacific and Regional Archive for Digital Sources in Endangered Cultures - (PARADISEC), The University of Melbourne and UTS has been rebuilding the core storage component of the PARADISEC archive as a foundation for their next-generation FAIR data archive. Read the blogpost from Marco below to find out more about the knowledge and tools crossing over from PARADISEC and UTS to the Science Mesh

Science Mesh – How to commercialise science to impact European Industry? An interview with Angelo Romasanta

“In today’s global world, generating new knowledge and turning it into new products and services is crucial to maintain and enhance the EU’s competitiveness. Transforming the results of scientific research into new commercial products is, however, a complex process involving a broad range of actors. We need to ensure that researchers and industry work closely together and maximise the social and economic benefits of new ideas” (Source: “Improving knowledge transfer between research institutions and industry across Europe”)

Science Mesh Workshop

 

Science Mesh workshop – showcasing a solid foundation ready to expand data daily workflows & improve Sync&Share services

The half-day workshop “Moving towards the Adoption Phase for Science Mesh”, organised by the CS3MESH4EOSC project, took place last 28th January, co-located with the CS3 2021 Conference. Focused on the adoption, roll-out and implementation of Science Mesh, the workshop brought together over 100 international professionals from the Cloud Storage Services for Synchronization and Sharing (CS3) community, along with key players from the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). The Science Mesh Workshop initiated a collaborative dialogue with early adopters and potential vendors that will contribute throughout the development, deployment and adoption of the Science Mesh.
