Join Amazon Web Services, Digital Science and Figshare for our next thought leadership webinar ‘Science in the Cloud’, on May 25th at 4pm BST / 11am ET.
You’ll hear about the trends in cloud-based computing and the importance of failure in innovation and how this can lead to great science. Discussions will also look at the benefits of investing in cloud-based applications and infrastructure.
