HIFIS conference - 17 and 18 October

HIFIS conference 2019

On 17 and 18 October 2019, the first HIFIS conference took place at DESY in Hamburg. The meeting of about 50 representatives of HIFIS, the other incubator platforms as well as international research organisations and associations provided the opportunity for a direct exchange of experience and knowledge on issues relevant to HIFIS.

The event was initiated by three keynotes from leading experts in their respective fields:

  • "Vision and Practice in the Implementation of Digital Sovereignty with Open Source Software" - Ingo Steuwer (Univention)

  • "Cloud-Services@Fraunhofer" - Frank Strathoff (Fraunhofer)

  • "European e-infrastructure" - Tiziana Ferrari (EGI Foundation)

After the presentations on the goals and current work of the individual clusters within HIFIS, there was the opportunity to exchange expectations and requirements in cluster-specific workshops. On the second day of the conference, the results of the individual workshops was gathered and jointly discussed.
