The CREAF is looking to hire a communication technician to support the management of communication for the AD4GD project (“All Data 4 Green Deal - An Integrated, FAIR Approach for the Common European Data Space”), with ref. HORIZON-CL6-2021-GOVERNANCE-01-17-101061001 and OEMC (Open-Earth-Monitor - A cyberinfrastructure to accelerate uptake of environmental information and help build user communities at European and global levels) with ref. HORIZON-CL6-2021-101059548 projects, both from the Horizon Europe program and financed by the European Union. 

This person will work directly with the principal investigator of both research projects in coordination with the CREAF Communication team.

AD4GD is an HEurope project of the European Commission that aims to co-create and shape the European Green Deal Data Space as an open center of data and FAIR standard-based services that support the key priorities of biodiversity, climate change, and pollution. The project will focus on the concepts of semantic and technological interoperability that currently prevent stakeholders from having multidisciplinary and multiscale access to data, and prevent the exploitation of processing services and platforms at different levels.

OEMC will increase the European capacity to generate timely, accurate, disaggregated, people-centered, and accessible environmental information (compatible with GSM) based on Earth observation data. This will be achieved by building a cyberinfrastructure anchored in the principles of FAIR data, leveraging and enhancing our existing platforms.
