On 30th of September 2020, the official CyVerse Kickoff event took place. Due to the current COVID19 restrictions we held the meeting in a hybrid form. The representatives from the rectorates at TUG, MUG and KFUG, as well as the project team were present in a seminar room and the event was livestreamed.
We had presentations from Stefanie Lindstaedt from TUG about the vision of project, Alexander Mahnert from MUG about the user perspective, Herbert Stoeri from VSC about the future perspective of the project, Tony Ross-Hellauer from TUG about the synergies with other ongoing projects (FAIR Data Austria and RegioData) and Nirav Merchant from CyVerse US about the global vision.
Around 60 people were watching the CyVerse Kickoff event. We are very happy about the great interest in the platform! Have a look at the slides of the presentation by Stefanie Lindstaedt.
