Colleagues, I forward this announcement of a training opportunity (with a 20 July application deadline) in case of interest.  Enquiries to: cosimo.vallo at lifewatch.eu. 

Best, Laura

Dear colleagues,

I wanted to share with all of you some details about this year's intensive school organized by LifeWatch ERIC with the title: The Semantic Academy – The LifeWatch ERIC Intensive School: Boost your research with semantic artefacts <https://www.lifewatch.eu/semantic-academy-intensive-school-2023/>. 

In recent years, one of the major challenges in Environmental and Earth Sciences has been managing and searching larger volumes of data, collected across multiple disciplines. Many different standards, approaches, and tools have been developed to support the Data Lifecycle from Data Acquisition to Data Curation, Data Publishing, Data Processing and Data Use. In particular, modern semantic technologies provide a promising way to properly describe and interrelate different data sources in ways that reduce barriers to data discovery, integration, and exchange among biodiversity and ecosystem resources and researchers. 

This programme is therefore built as a five-day intensive school to provide knowledge on how to create semantic artifacts for a specific domain and use them to annotate and analyse data in a Virtual Research Environment (VRE). It will cover topics such as Data Science, Semantics, Ontology, Vocabularies, Virtual Research Environments (VREs). The School is therefore mainly aimed at IT architects, Research Infrastructure (RI) service developers and user support staff, and RI staff.

This school is organized by LifeWatch ERIC and will take place in Lecce, from 25 to 29 September 2023.

The Semantic Academy will welcome participants with a welcome cocktail event and social dinner, while the actual Intensive School programme will last from Monday afternoon to Friday morning, closing with a certificate ceremony.

The outline of the School programme is as follows:

Introducing the LifeWatch ERIC eScience Infrastructure
Ontology Engineering
Designing and Developing vocabularies
Using Semantics for discovering, accessing and analysing data in the Notebook-as-a-VRE (NaaVRE)
Putting everything together: practical activity with participants projects presentations
Interested persons are invited to apply by 20 July by filling in the sign-up form here <https://www.lifewatch.eu/semantic-academy-intensive-school-2023/registration-form/>: https://www.lifewatch.eu/semantic-academy-intensive-school-2023/registration-form/ 

Participation is free, but registration is compulsory. Three grants are made available by LifeWatch ERIC to support applicants younger than 30 years. Successful candidates will be offered accommodation for the whole duration of the intensive school on the basis of their motivation letter and their curricula, while travel must be self-funded. LifeWatch ERIC is an equal opportunity organisation, and encourages all qualified candidates to apply, regardless of race, gender, age, national origin, or sexual orientation. Follow LifeWatch ERIC updates!

Thank you.

Kind regards
