The Scuola Universitaria Superiore di Pavia joins ICDI to strengthen its collaboration with the main European stakeholders operating in the field of Open Science and Cloud Services for Science.
The Scuola Universitaria Superiore IUSS of Pavia has always been oriented to produce high quality and impactful scientific research for the development and advancement of knowledge, based on the principles of Open Science, for free and open access to scientific knowledge.
In this direction, the School has made its commitment concrete with the approval, during the session of the Academic Senate March 17, 2021, of a specific policy for open access to research publications, thus fully recognizing the role of Open Science in its strategic plan. In addition to the use of IRIS, the repository for publications, IUSS has invested in a high-performance supercomputer (HPC) and large data storage capacity, technologically innovative to serve the research activities of the IUSS School.
"Data Center" is a digital infrastructure to support research, able to enhance the accessibility and reusability of research results, in alignment with the latest European policies.
The School's participation in the ICDI round table, in this context, will allow synergies with the most advanced European realities and strengthen the collaboration with the main European actors operating in the field of Open Science and cloud services for science.
Prof. Cristiano Chesi, Director of the NeTS Linguistics Lab @ IUSS (Laboratory for Neurolinguistics, Computational Linguistics and Theoretical Syntax), declares: "Joining the ICDI allows the IUSS to exploit the rich production of data and scientific products resulting from the advanced research carried out within its specialised Research Centres and Laboratories. The natural vocation of these structures to work in national and supranational networks will be appropriately encouraged and supported also through the establishment of Virtual Laboratories, i.e. research realities distributed on the network and on the national territory with the aim of promoting the specialisation of the various infrastructures and sharing their resources".
