This ICRI2022 collocated event discusses challenges and best practices for enabling the green and digital transition for research infrastructures from both the RI and the infrastructure providers’ perspective. 

While showcasing technical advancements and initiatives of high scientific value and social impact, the talks will also dive into operative aspects of IT services and ways of reducing their environmental burden so as to bring forth a moreholistic approach towards green transition and eco-efficiency for research infrastructures.
