Communities of Research Software Engineers (RSEs) around the globe are conducting a survey among people who develop software that is used in research. The Netherlands Research Software Engineer community (NL-RSE) is asking all RSEs in the Netherlands to fill in the online survey: http://bit.ly/RSESurvey2018. The survey takes ~15 minutes to complete and is open until December 3rd.
On September 20, 2018, ePLAN organizes a workshop at the Amsterdam Science Park to discuss the status of the European Open Science Cloud, as well as related developments, such as FAIR and open science.The workshop kicks off with short presentations about the European projects EOSC-hub, EOSCpilot, the National Platform Open Science and FAIR. More information about the (tentative) program, location and registration can be found below.

‘The cloud’ is one of the hottest tech topics of our time. It’s therefore no surprise that European Commission has also jumped on the bandwagon. Big time! Last year, the European Commission launched the outline of a multi-year and multi-billion Euro plan for the development and implementation of a European Open Science Cloud.
The purpose of this Call for Proposals is to enable researchers working in the Arts and Humanities to address compute-intensive and/or data-driven problems within their research and to contribute to a generic and sustainable eScience infrastructure.
The deadline for the mandatory proposal abstract is 15 November 2016, 14:00 CET and the deadline for full proposals is 16 December 2016, 14:00 CET. More information can be found here.
