Lunch Talks programme (booth 23-25)

Get your daily dose of environmental science during EGU23! Join the Lunch Talks session at the ENVRI Community booth (Entrance Hall, Level 0, booth 23-25) everyday between 12:15 and 13:15. No registration is required. Listen to our experts, and join the conversation. Full programme below!

Monday 24.4

“ACTRIS – The Aerosol, Clouds and Trace Gases Research Infrastructure Exploring the Atmosphere”
ACTRIS’ state-of-the-art resources and services provide unprecedented opportunities for atmospheric scientists to perform research and experiments that address the most important questions in air quality and climate research.

“eLTER – The challenge of a holistic approach in ecosystem research an observation”
The unique characteristic of eLTER as part of the European Research Infrastructures landscape is to serve multiple disciplines collaborating at well-chosen sites. These sites represent major European environments
and understanding their functioning under global change requires long-term, cross- and trans-disciplinary approaches.

ENVRI-Hub demo: The future gateway to the environmental data and services
Meet the ENVRI Hub! This portal is the central gateway to FAIR data and services the European environmental research infrastructures offer. The ENVRI-Hub features a community-built platform that combines a service catalogue, a knowledge base, information on training resources that support service providers and users, and a virtual research environment with several initial science demonstrators, all accessible through a single access interface.

Tuesday 25.4

ENVRI Hub demo: catalogue of services
This demo is dedicated to the catalogue of services of the ENVRI-hub. The catalogue contains descriptions of services provided by European environmental research infrastructures, complete with data, metadata, semantic assets, taxonomic information, and more. The catalogue focuses on services with machine-accessible endpoints and how to prompt them.

Observing the ocean from sea-surface down to seafloor: EMSO ERIC and the crucial role of European and international cooperation in a nutshell
Oceans play a fundamental role for life on Earth and regulate its climate. The goal EMSO ERIC is to monitor essential ocean variables (EOVs) from the sea surface to the ocean floor to foresee and address complex environmental processes and natural hazards.

Book launch: “A Practical Guide to Atmospheric Simulation Chambers”
The guide presents atmospheric simulation chambers as effective tools for atmospheric chemistry research. It describes the latest advances in chamber interoperability and standard protocols to provide the research community and the next generations of scientists with a unique technical reference guide for using simulation chambers.

Wednesday 26.4

New advances in IAGOS
The latest developments in the IAGOS infrastructure will be described, along with a demonstration of the new tools from the IAGOS database.

Online processing environments: EPOS use case (Jupyter notebook+Enlighten)
Online processing environments are becoming more usual and can provide quick insight into scientific methods and enable transparent research. EPOS is demonstrating a use case from the solid Earth domain where Jupyter Notebook and the visualization tool Enlighten are opening new paths for research.

ENVRI Hub demo 3: Scientific use cases
Meet the ENVRI Hub! This portal is the central gateway to FAIR data and services the European environmental research infrastructures offer. The ENVRI-Hub features a community-built platform that combines a service catalogue, a knowledge base, information on training resources that support service providers and users, and a virtual research environment with several initial science demonstrators, all accessible through a single access interface.

Thursday 27.4

Blueprint for European Urban Scale Greenhouse Gas Measurements
ICOS Cities bring together and evaluate the most innovative measurement approaches for greenhouse gas emissions in densely populated urban areas. The project supports the European Green Deal and aims to develop tools and services for cities to support their local climate action plans.

Unlocking the Treasure Trove of Science: an Exciting Tour of the EOSC Portal
Picture this: you’re a researcher on a quest to discover new knowledge and uncover scientific secrets. But instead of searching far and wide for the tools and data you need, you have a trusty sidekick that guides you to the treasure trove of science: the EOSC portal! This magical portal combines everything you need for your research journey – from data sets to analysis tools – all in one place. It’s like a digital genie granting your wishes for scientific discovery. And the best part? It’s all about sharing and collaboration! You can connect with fellow researchers, swap ideas, and build on each other’s work to unlock new discoveries and uncover hidden gems. So, grab your lab coat and goggles, and let’s set off on a wild adventure of discovery with the EOSC portal as our guide!

The Dashboard for the State of the Environment
The EOSC Future Science Project on the “Dashboard for the State of the Environment” is a cross-discipline service that addresses scientific facts the environmental concerns. It showcases the use of services offered by the EOSC while contributing to the continuous growth of the EOSC. The project combines Research Infrastructures from different environmental disciplines (Biodiversity, Atmosphere, Ocean) that set up analytical workflows to provide environmental indicators. The indicators are fed to the Environmental Dashboard in real-time, allowing the users to visualise the “State of the Environment” by interacting with the provided (well-documented) indicators via a user-friendly interface that links them to the output of the contributors’ workflows.


Townhall (Room 0.94/95, with free food & drinks)

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.

Looking up to the sky: Flying around in the Open Science Universe, we identify what is already there – what can we reach with our scientific starships and how can we benefit? What spectacular scientific results can we foresee with Open Science approaches? What would be needed to achieve them?

Looking back down to earth: We identify the current barriers or challenges and brainstorm ways to overcome them. What does this require from all of us and our current way of thinking about integrating data and science? How can we boldly go where no scientist has gone before?

This Townhall Meeting follows up on the session ESSI 2.9 where various approaches demonstrate successful integration on the level of datasets and/or research infrastructures in support of scientific research. Within disciplines, across disciplines, and across national or even continental boundaries.

Although it may seem like a small step in this day and age of great online and technological possibilities, early attempts hint that it will still be a giant leap to fully achieve this integration.
