On March 8 and 9 I was invited to participate in the expert consultation on "Industry and Innovation in e-Infrastructures for Horizon 2020.
All invited experts were asked to contribute to the following questions:
1. Technology transfer, spin-offs and financing
2. How should e-Infrastructures cooperate with their supplier industry to innovate?
3. How should e-Infrastructures extend services to enable innovation in industry?
What types of service?
I was particularly excited about www.datacite.or, which is issuing DOIs for datasets and the Helix Nebula project, a Privat/Public Partnership to create a science Cloud in Europe.
The picture from one of the presentation shows the increase of citations from publications of which also the data sets were published
