Technologies
•  Widely used complete frameworks (Galaxy, HubZero, Open Science
Framework etc.)
•  RESTful APIs and support of multiple programming languages in widely
used frameworks (Apache Airavata, the Agave platform, etc.)
•  Reused interface implementations such as the one of CIPRES with its
RESTful API (CIPRES has served more than 20,000 users to date)
•  Science gateways as a service with provision of hardware in the
background such as SciGap (Science Gateway Platform as a Service)
Lessons learned: approaches should be technology agnostic, using
APIs and standard web technologies OR deliver a complete solution
Community Engagement is key

Benefits of International Collaboration
9
•  Improving national competitiveness
•  Supporting less developed countries by developing science,
technology and innovation capabilities
•  Tackling global challenges such as climate change, health
issues and sustainable energy resources
•  Creating good and stable diplomatic relationships (and
indirectly ensuring international security)
•  Globalization is not new but more and more evident in
industrial research and the worldwide mobility of researchers
•  Smaller countries tend to collaborate internationally more
often than bigger ones
•  Publications with international partners are more cited than
publications with one author or a group of authors from one
country. http://www.eurosfaire.prd.fr/7pc/doc/
