Synergy Workshop 4 »Sustainable Research – Technology Overview and Data Lifecycle«

SURE Facilitation and Synthesis Research Project


The SURE Synergy Workshop 4 focused on digital technologies and data management in SURE collaborative projects and within the SURE framework. The workshop’s intention was multifold: it aimed to explore and exchange digital tools (open-source or commercial) and technologies developed and used in the SURE collaborative projects that help and contribute to your research work. On the other hand, the workshop aimed to reflect on the data management approaches in the collaborative projects and facilitate a discussion on data sharing and management within the projects.

In the first part of the event, participants listened to an impulse talk given by the guest speaker Dobroslav Totev who gave an insight into the Toolbox of Digital City Science. The second part of the workshop consisted of two parallel ‘pitch’ presentations and group discussions. The 10 collaborative project representatives were asked to share their projects experiences on two topics: »Technology Stack Exchange« and »Data Pipeline«. The parallel sessions were followed by a summary of the main discussion points to open the floor for the final remarks of the participants.

Synergy Workshop 1 »Introduction and Exploration«

SURE Facilitation and Synthesis Research Project

The first SURE Synergy Workshop aim was twofold: introduction and exploration. First, the workshop aimed to introduce the SURE Facilitation and Synthesis Research Project, the concept of synergy workshops and intended to gather feedback and suggestions. Secondly, the workshop aimed to provide space for project partners to meet, explore each other’s work and exchange about potential synergies.

Synergy Workshop 2 »From Research to Action – Lessons Learned«

SURE Facilitation and Synthesis Research Project

The intentions of SURE Synergy Workshop 2 were to have an exchange on experiences from previous programmes and projects, to get insights into different research programmes and projects and to learn from each other’s experiences.
