The overall objective of the conference has been to, explore and discuss a concrete set of actions to foster sustainability and impact of European research infrastructures on industry, policy and society. The outcome of this high-level event helped to identify the priority actions, forming an initial backbone of the Action Plan on Long-term sustainability of Research Infrastructures and providing the impetus for full realisation of the potential of the European Research Area in order to further boost broad-based research and innovation. The conference fostered long-term competitiveness and excellence of the RIs in Europe and world-wide.
Program of the Event
Research Infrastructures Challenges beyond 2020
was completed with inspirational speech “The impact of electronic infrastructures on the young scientist’s career: freedom to choose” by Ivo Iliev (PhD student, supporting industry to implement high performance computing at the HPC laboratory in Sofia Park) and Yavor Papazov (Technical manager, CyResLab)
The HPC-lab has been identified as a partner in the project GATE (Big Data for Smart Society , Project ID: 763566).
The general objective of GATE is to establish Centre of Excellence on “Big Data for Smart Society – GATE” that will fulfill the vision of Open Innovation through building a sustainable University-Government-Industry-Society ecosystem. The CoE will be established as joint initiative between Sofia University – the most prestigious educational and scientific hub in Bulgaria and Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden.
