ACES winner Mendeley is revolutionising the way research is done – using cloud computing to create the largest crowd-sourced library in the world. Its software lets academics organise and annotate journal articles, and share and discuss their work with researchers around the globe
In April 2016, the European Commission announced a bold new initiative to pull European science fully into the age of the “cloud”. Its €6.7 billion European Open Science Cloud plan could change the future of research, cloud services and data technologies in Europe - affecting strategies for companies, universities and governments.
To track this important initiative, Science|Business, together with the Science|Business Network, is forming a platform for companies, universities and research infrastructure. The group will meet regularly in private and public to gain intelligence and facilitate dialogue in Brussels. For more information about how to get involved, contact David Pringle, Senior Adviser.
