    • 10:00 AM 10:10 AM
      Introduction 10m
      Speaker: Ian Bird (LAPP)
      • EOSC-Future had its first "technical review" on Oct 14.  The report has not been received yet (promised 2 weeks).
        • Some expectation that the project would already have delivered a lot more after only 6 months, even though the plan was mostly recruitment and planning during this time.
        • 2 of the reviewers (both HEP and HPC related) encouraged the delivery of use cases to the science projects
      • Had a general TSP meeting last week, well attended.  Several concrete issues were raised (e.g. interaction between IVOA and Data Lake,  MoU with experiments maybe needed for access to some data sets, quite a lot of discussion on what the VRE is.)
        • agreed a monthly meeting to get the projects moving, in addition to the TSP-specific meetings.
        • agreed we need a wiki (or similar) to host project-internal information, documents, etc.
        • Please join the mailing lists if you think you should be involved:, and
        • Agenda, presentations and minutes are here: 
        • Main thing to work on now is milestones and resource requirements (and how to fulfil them)
      • Next ESCAPE periodic review is agreed for March 2, 2022

        Speaker: Xavier Espinal (CERN)

        Nothing particular to report - continuing to build momentum for DAC21 test week, including dedicated mock runs for experiments to do dry runs of their tests with dedicated support from core Data Lake team.

        Speaker: John Swinbank (ASTRON)
        • Very productive meeting between the ASTRON ESCAPE team and Dany Vohl, who is working on the EOSC Future Extreme Universe TSP / Compact Objects projects at UvA. Agreed on the technical support needed for the project, how it fits with ongoing ESCAPE development goals etc.
        • Based on that discussion, we have updated the “vision” for the ESCAPE shopping basket workflow.
        • Poster at ADASS XXI this week on ESAP.

        Detailed planning for DAC21 tests, including long-haul tests within our Rucio instance (from sites in Australia and South Africa) and attemping to run our Science Data Challenge 1 (SDC1) workflow (as has been previously integrated into OSSR) on the CERN DLaaS (Data Lake as a Service) platform, with data products stored in the Data Lake.
