      • EC Project Reports:
        • WP2 Milestone M2.2: Initial pilot data lake with at least 3 sites
          • Means of verification: progress report, active monitoring of the activity (web site
            • Due date: 31st July
        • ESCAPE Technical report planning
          • 10 August 2020 – WP leads provide individual reports to WP1
          • 31 August 2020 – Final draft ready to be shared with General Assembly and EEAB
          • 11 September 2020 – Deadline for EGA and EEAB to provide feedback and comments
          • 21 September 2020 – Final versions ready to be submitted.
        • We are kindly asking to:
          • All partners to provide a brief summary of hiring and FTE commitments in WP2 and brief summary of the activities you are involved in WP2. 
            • Thanks to those that already sent the report to us!
          • Task leads to provide a short high level summary of status and plans. Do not forget to mention contributions to conferences, webinars, articles, etc.


      • LOFAR Task Force: at the last EB proposed a task force across WP(2,3 and 5) for the LOFAR demonstrator. Kick-off meeting today 15 July among task leads and ESCAPE Technical Coordinator.
        • Proposal: LOFAR as cross-WP task force
          • Propose to have the LOFAR use case (which is in a quite advance status) as a driver to initiate a task force among WP2, WP3 and WP5 to finish a demonstrator by Feb 2021 (+2 years of the project).
          • This could be a good input for the progress report due in Oct/Nov.
          • Three main points:
            • LOFAR Data stored in the datalake on different sites with different replication policies
            • LOFAR Software available from the ESCAPE repos, ready to be access/shipped/downloaded to the processing nodes (hundreds of MB)
            • Running workflows in the ESAP, demonstrate data IO from/to the datalake
          • This also could be the way to quickly enable later on same demonstrators LSST, CTA, EGO/VIRGO and TSPs.
