Trust-IT rises to a new challenge in branding, positioning & communicating ICT-intensive services for the astrophysics community


ASTERICS, the Astronomy ESFRI and Research Infrastructure Cluster, is a €15 million Research Infrastructure funded by the European Commission's Horizon 2020 framework. ASTERICS aims to address the cross-cutting synergies and common challenges shared by the various Astronomy ESFRI facilities (SKA, CTA, KM3NeT & E-ELT). It brings together for the first time, the astronomy, astrophysics and particle astrophysics communities, in addition to other related research infrastructures.

One of its five work packages, OBELICS (Observatory E-environments Linked by common ChallengeS), is currently developing common solutions for streaming data processing and extremely large databases, as well as studying advanced analysis algorithms and software frameworks for data processing and quality control. Workshops and international training schools are key activities that will be organised within OBELICS, backed up by an effective communication and strategic outreach to other interrelated communities and e-science service providers, necessary to achieve the preset objectives.

Trust-IT Services will support LAPP, the Laboratoire d’Annecy-le-Vieux de Physique des Particules, which is leading OBELICS, in the revamp of the dissemination and communication strategy to market & promote OBELICS excellence to the astrophysics community, to other research communities and to the public. Specific dissemination activities will be planned and developed by Trust-IT to ensure a more coordinated, structured and continuous organisation and promotion of OBELICS workshops and to effectively communicate the results to target stakeholders.
