The 5th Eastern Partnership E-infrastructure Conference, EaPEC 2022, will be held in Baku, Azerbaijan, under the theme ‘Building Connections’ on 28-29 September 2022.

Knowledge sharing is crucial to research and education; individuals form communities that learn and develop together. Human connections and common information, tools and services are vital. These have been challenged by the COVID pandemic. Research and education networks and other e-infrastructures help researchers, students, teachers and academic staff connect with each other and the resources they need, to collaborate internationally and maximise their potential. Eastern Partnership countries are supporting open data, information digitisation, online learning and working and secure access to resources.

EaPEC 2022 welcomes policy makers, research managers and experts on networking, high-performance computing and information technologies for research and education, as well as anyone interested in exploring the conference topics; “Open Science and Clouds, Cybersecurity, e-Learning and Education, e-Health, Earth Observation, Digital Humanities, ICT Innovation and Network as a Service”.

EaPEC conferences serve as a platform for collaboration on policy and research and support community building in e-infrastructures between the Eastern Partnership region and the EU member states. The conferences are organised by the EaPConnect project, which is funded by the European Union within the EU4Digital initiative under Grant Agreement number ENI/2019/407-452. EU4Digital promotes key areas of the digital economy and society, in line with EU norms and practices.
