Addressing global challenges such as the climate change and answering complex research questions about the Earth System rely on scientific communities working across disciplinary and institutional boundaries, supported by effective access to heterogeneous multi-source Earth observation science data, knowledge, and computing infrastructures. Open Science can bring enormous value to these endeavours by offering interoperable systems working across domains with heterogeneous data and that “make the scientific process as transparent (or open) as possible. Collaborative research and development environments such as the Earth System Data Lab, enabled by digital platform technologies (e.g. Euro Data Cube, openEO platform, etc.) are being developed and evolved to respond to these needs, focusing on providing effective and robust solutions for Earth Observation data science and geoscience research. This hands-on training/tutorial will introduce participants to these solutions, demonstrating the use of Digital Platforms for impactful scientific investigations in the cloud.
