A joint CHAIN-REDS
Workshop organised under the aegis of the European Commission (EC) and in co-location with UbuntuNet-Connect 2013
November 13, 2013, Kigali - Rwanda
The CHAIN-REDS and eI4Africa EU/FP7 projects have a common interest in promoting the adoption of consolidated standards, both in the e-Infrastructure and certification authorities and Federated Identity services domains, with the ultimate aim of widening the number of potential users of e-Infrastructures in Africa.
The CHAIN-REDS and eI4Africa partnerships organised a highly interactive joint event to present a set of activities implemented to date, including the deployment of Science Gateways and federated services (Certification Authorities and Identity Providers), a Knowledge Database, a e-Infrastructure application survey, as well as a large number of live demos in life science, healthcare and environmental sectors, among others.
The main objectives of this workshop were to:
Enhance collaboration among African and European scientists
Raise awareness of the regional research and education networks and their potential
Propose alternate means of conducting research and delivering services; Demonstrate the relevance of e-Infrastructures and advanced networks
Provide a forum for discussions and debates on recent developments and perspectives in the field.
