      The CS3MESH project 10m

      In this presentation we will explain the objective of the CS3MESH4EOSC EU project. Europe is facing a fragmentation of different services that are very difficult to connect to each other like you were using a centralized global service like DropBox or Google Drive. The project aims at bringing the same user-friendly functionality already offered by global services and individual on-premise deployments on a pan-European cross-institution mesh that relies on the federation of different sites by using well-known APIs. The project involves defining and promoting a set of APIs that will allow to connect these isolated service islands while retaining user privacy and data sovereignty.

      Speakers: Hugo Gonzalez Labrador (University of Vigo (ES)), Jakub Moscicki (CERN)
