EGI at EGU 2024

Vienna, Austria & Online | 14–19 April 2024
EGU 2024

The EGU General Assembly 2024 brings together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience. The EGI Foundation is taking part in the Generally Assembly with the sessions described below, as well as with booth #101 in the exhibition area; come meet us!


We'll showcase our innovative services, projects, and other solutions at booth 101. Stop by, talk with our team, and learn about all that EGI has to offer the Geoscience research community.

Scientific sessions

ESSI 3.5 Advancing Research and Knowledge in Earth and Environmental Science Through Data Integration and Interoperability – Concepts and Applications from Multi-disciplinary Groups

Co-conveners: Angeliki Adamaki (ICOS RI), Fabio Feriozzi (Roma Tre), Federica Tanlongo (EPOS ERIC), Jacco Konijn (LifeWatch ERIC), Anca Hienola (Finnish Meteorological Institute), Marta Gutierrez (EGI Foundation), Magdalena Brus (EGI Foundation)

In environmental and climate science, addressing challenges with holistic solutions underscores the vital need for data integration and interoperability. Our expertise as environmental researchers extends to engaging with research and e-infrastructures, fostering scientific development through interdisciplinary collaboration. In this era of big data, advanced methodologies and machine-to-machine (M2M) services are essential. Challenges in enhancing M2M interactions and enabling data and service interoperation arise as technology evolves. European operational infrastructures, such as Environmental Research Infrastructures (ENVRIs), the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), and e-Infrastructures like EGI, contribute significantly to scientific progress.

This session at EGU2024 seeks real-world examples from environmental and climate researchers across earth science domains. We invite data product developers, data scientists, and engineers to share insights, showcase research or scientific development projects, discuss challenges, and propose best practices in successful interoperability frameworks. We welcome expertise in data analytics, visualisation, data collection, quality control, infrastructure utilisation, and cloud services.


SC5.19 Mastering environmental research through FAIR Data Integration, VREs and open science

Co-conveners: Angeliki Adamaki (ICOS RI), Magdalena Brus (EGI Foundation), Jacco Konijn (LifeWatch ERIC), Anca Hienola (Finnish Meteorological Institute), Marta Gutierrez (EGI Foundation)

Mastering data integration, Virtual Research Environments (VREs), web services, and open science is crucial for environmental science. Our comprehensive course unites researchers, data developers, scientists, and engineers. Through hands-on learning, we delve into the pivotal role of data integration, VREs, and web services in environmental science. Explore the revolutionary landscape of distributed computing infrastructure and open data concepts, gaining insights into accessing cloud computing power. Learn to find and access datasets in platforms like the EOSC Marketplace, run scientific applications in the cloud, and tackle challenges in customizing and running data workflows using Jupyter notebooks. Guided by experts, attendees will explore science cases in ecology and biodiversity virtual labs, ensuring a comprehensive and practical learning experience.

Townhall meetings

Green Deal Data Odyssey: Unveiling Opportunities for the Geoscience Community

Conveners: Magdalena Brus and Marta Gutierrez (EGI Foundation)

This interactive session brings together data space developers, data scientists and geoscientists for a lively and honest exchange of ideas and opinions on the current landscape of Data Space initiatives:

  • Explore real-world applications of the Green Deal Data Space and other Data space initiatives
  • Participate in an open discussion about the strengths and weaknesses of existing data initiatives and how to overcome them
  • Uncover opportunities for collaboration and innovation
  • Shape the future of data-driven geoscience.

Science, no Fiction: Preparing to Land the Environmental and Earth Science Starship: connecting the Universe of Open Science with Planet Earth

This Townhall Meeting aims to give an outlook of new directions in scientific research that could be possible if online data sets, tools, and research infrastructures are fully integrated on a global scale across scientific disciplines as well as sectoral and national boundaries. This Town hall meeting is co-organised by ENVRI-Hub NEXT.
