Session Lead: Kerstin Lehnert
Title: The iSamples RCN Survey & Working Group activities: How can we maximize impact for EarthCube?
This breakout session will provide an opportunity for the EarthCube community to learn about the first results of the iSamples RCN and to get engaged in the ongoing working groups. We will structure the breakout specifically to facilitate discussions between the scientists who participate in the RCN and the Building Blocks to define a next set of goals and actions to advance development and testing of data infrastructure and software tools for physical samples. The session will include:
- presentation of the results of the iSamples Stakeholder Alignment survey about sharing samples and sample data;
- overview of iSamples working groups and presentations of scientists engaged in these working groups;
- open forum for EarthCube projects to explore synergies and initiate collaborations.
