Summary
Cyber-infrastructure
1. E-Infrastructure
• strategic relevance of research infrastructures
• e-infrastructures: moving, processing and managing data
• coherent strategies and opportunities to implement them
2. Cloud Computing
3. Coordinated Calls
Cyber-Infrastructure
The two faces of Cyber-Infrastructure
E-Infrastructure developing the on-line ERA supporting
research and innovation across all scientific domains with high
speed connectivity, high performance computing and data
infrastructure. This is part of the “Excellence in Science” pillar of
H2020.
Cloud computing strategy to speed up the adoption and
increase of cloud computing across all sectors of the economy
Times of change: research logic machines
Research Data collected at observation or experimentation
phase were registered in the scientists notebooks, which
used to be paper books
Now research data is stored in digital form. Easier to be
processed by "logic machines" programmed with complex
models able to dig into the data
Logic machines are made of human scientific knowledge
and creativity, software and the underlying hardware
Scientist notebooks can now be linked to a huge amount of
other data resources (including scientific papers), computers
with unprecedented capacity, eventually connected to global
networks
Europe riding the research data wave
Vision: "data e-infrastructure that
supports seamless access, use, re-use,
and trust of data.
In a sense, the physical and technical
infrastructure becomes invisible and the
data themselves become the
infrastructure a valuable asset on which
science, technology, the economy and
society can advance".
The High Level Expert Group on
Scientific Data presented Riding
the Wave in October 2010
Russell's quote could be extended:
“without data and computing infrastructures few men
can achieve much in 21st century’s science”
Who is involved?
data generators
research projects, big research
infrastructure, installations or
medium size laboratories,
simulation centres, surveys or
individual researchers
discipline-specific data services
providing data and workflows as
a service
generic common data services
computing centres, libraries,…
researchers as users
using (and producing) data for
science and engineering
community driven data infrastructure,
including ESFRI, ESFRI clusters and others
Issues to be addressed (policy framework)
Are publically funded research data a public good?
How do we ensure preservation and access?
How to we make data discoverable and exchangeable?
How to ensure integrity and reliability of data?
How do we ensure appropriate recognition?
How do we manage intellectual property?
How do we deal with privacy in the research context?
How do work the long term funding and cost/benefit?
How to work at European and global levels?
How to foster cooperation with developing countries?
etc…
Issues to be addressed (e-infrastructure)
The EC in coordination with EU Member States is looking after
research data as an infrastructure
As a valuable and a strategic resource, research data opens at
least three key issues to be addressed(*):
• How data can be networked
• How to envision and set up data governance on a global scale
• How the EU can play a leading role in helping start and steer
this global trend

E-Infrastructures, main issues
Data e-Infrastructures increase scope, depth and economies
of scale of the scientific enterprise
Horizon 2020 provides tools and opportunities addressing
data and computing e-infrastructures
If taken with appropriate resources and critical mass, can
project Europe into the new world of data driven science
The objective is to combine the expertise of scientific
communities with the expertise of ICT communities capable of
exploring the limits of high bandwidth communication, highperformance computing, open scientific software and virtual
research environments
2. EU Cloud computing strategy:
vision and priorities
 Commission Communication of 27 September 2012
http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=COM:2012:0529:FIN:EN:PDF
 Also known as the "European Cloud Strategy"
 Strategy designed to speed up the adoption and
increase the use of cloud computing across all
sectors of the economy
http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_IP-12-1025_en.htm
15
Expected benefits
Motivation for the fast adoption of cloud computing
 Cost savings in the deployment of IT services (infrastructures,
installations, human resources)
 Forecast of expenditure on 'public cloud' services in the EU until
2020
€35 billion without policy intervention
€78 billion if appropriate policy initiatives are implemented
Impact on all sectors of the economy
 Increase of the EU GDP in the year 2020 due to cloud computing
€88 billion without policy intervention
€250 billion if appropriate policy initiatives are implemented 16
European Council Conclusions
EU Heads of State and Government (25 October 2013)
Chapter on "Digital Economy, Innovation and Services"
 Several strategic technologies such as Big Data and Cloud Computing
are important enablers for productivity and better services. Cloud
Computing should improve access to data and simplify their sharing.
Big Data aims to process, collect, store and analyse large amounts of
data
 EU action should provide the right framework conditions for a single
market for Big Data and Cloud Computing, in particular by promoting
high standards for secure, high-quality and reliable cloud services
17
What about research and innovation?
• COM(2012)529 of 27 September 2012:
• - Make full use of other instruments, notably through research
and development support under Horizon 2020 on long term
challenges specific to cloud computing as well as assisting the
migration to cloud-based solutions
• Current status: significant resources (€100 million) allocated to
support advanced cloud computing infrastructures and services
 H2020 WP2014-2015: €95 million
 EU-Brazil: €3.5 million
 EU-Japan: €1.5 million

20
EUB1–2015: Cloud Computing,
including security aspects
Specific Challenge: data are motivating a profound
transformation in the culture and conduct of scientific research in
every field of science and engineering. Advancements in this area
are required in terms of cloud-centric applications for big data, as
well as in creating novel cloud technologies that provide effective
utilization and optimization of heterogeneous resources (such as
storage and communications) in big data scenarios, in particular
addressing privacy, security and other Quality-of-Service issues*
* In line with statement of EU Heads of State and Governmnet in October 2013
21
EUB1–2015: scope
Research and Innovation Actions (RIA)
 The focus of the joint research will be the development of innovative
technologies combining advanced Clouds and Big Data approaches to
address the challenges stemming from different application domains
in business and societal contexts. The technologies developed should
take into account interoperability and data portability issues and aim
towards future standardization
Coordinated and Support Actions (CSA)
 One CSA for the research coordination and policy activities, including
research roadmapping and supporting further future common
activities, i.e. dissemination, organisation of workshops, preparation of
future coordinated call topics, etc.
22
Expected impact
The joint EU-Brazil research will develop innovative technologies in the
area of cloud based service provision by integrating approaches and
aspects of distributed Clouds and Big Data
This collaboration will facilitate policy coordination in the relevant areas
between the EU and Brazil, subsequently to be expanded to other LAC
partners. In particular:
 Facilitate the development of cloud-enabled applications through
robust standardized global technologies
 Development of technologies integrating cloud and big data in terms
of architecture, middleware and services
 Joint contributions to International Standardization and/or Forum
activities
