Summer at the ResNet - diving and gliding on through

A brief update on the Research Network aka ResNet aka Edgeryders AAIR’s activities for the summer (now to end August) to follow up on the team retreat, keep a consolidated list, open for feedback + stepping in by those interested. For people tagged, please let me know if you are no longer able or interested in getting involved.

The list is compiled according to the ResNet categories as per our final session at the team retreat and modest in the interest of tending to capacities and the usual story of unexpected opportunities coming in. The timeline is emergent and will be guided by priorities that rise to the top.

Hey just saw this on the next research programme: Horizon Europe

For the next long-term EU budget 2021-2027, the Commission is proposing €100 billion for research and innovation.

Also, more open science they say:

More openness: The principle of ‘open science’ will become the modus operandi of Horizon Europe, requiring open access to publications and data. This will assist market uptake and increase the innovation potential of results generated by EU funding.
