'Making international research collaboration work - the Cloud" session at the "New world order: Science, technology & trade" event, 27 June 2017, Brussels

Bob Jones, CERN & HNSciCloud Coordinator, contributed to the session "Making international research collaboration work - the Cloud" at the  "New world order: Science, technology & trade" event, 27 June 2017, Brussels by promoting HNSciCloud as a good example of implementing the hybrid cloud.

The world is changing fast. Will technology trade barriers rise? Will relations among Europe, the US, China, Russia and other powers be upended? Will research priorities change – for climate, energy, health, defence? All of these questions will force new strategies for companies, universities and governments around the world.
The annual Science|Business Network conference focused on how international relations in science, technology and trade could be transformed – and how these changes will, in turn, affect the EU’s next flagship R&D effort, Framework Programme 9.

Bob Jones took part to the "Making international research collaboration work - the Cloud" session.

Moderated by David Pringle, Senior Advisor at Science|Business, the session saw a panel composed by four renewed spekers:

  • Brendan Bouffler, Head of Amazon Web Services’ Research Cloud Program, Amazon
  • Jean-Claude Burgelman, Head of Unit, Science Policy, Foresight and Data, DG Research & Innovation, European Commission
  • Robert Jones, Coordinator, Helix Nebula, CERN
  • Jukka Mönkkönen, Rector, University of Eastern Finland

"Despite tensions, there really is growing cross-border collaboration on making the cloud work for science.", this was the main topic of the panel. 

Over 200 participants from Europe in the business sector, academia, fundign agencies and the EC attended the event.
