On 12 & 13 June, EATRIS welcomed six Research Infrastructure managers in Amsterdam to exchange knowledge and experiences with respect to Governance, business and operational planning for hubs & nodes. The two day programme provided a mix of lectures from EATRIS on best practices and lessons learnt as well as structured break-out groups where participants discussed their use cases.
The knowledge exchange workshop proved to be a very valuable opportunity for the participants but also EATRIS staff to reflect on achievements and challenges so far and make plans for the steps forward. Participant feedback was extremely positive (all participants strongly agreed that the staff exchange was a valuable experience):
“Many thanks for organising this excellent workshop and for sharing the resources. It was extremely useful and a good networking opportunity”.
“Great and valuable meeting. Would be great to be continued for others!”
“It was a rewarding and helpful opportunity to get a more in-depth understanding of RI best practices and structural characteristics. I learned a lot!”
