<rekado>hmm, there’s an event at the MDC called “Horizon Europe: All you need to know. Turning the new EU programme into a success for MDC”
<rekado>I’m thinking about participating to figure out if and how we could apply with Guix HPC.
***Server sets mode: +cnt
<civodul>rekado_: re Horizon Europe, we got similar events at Inria but i didn't attend
<civodul>could be interesting to see whether/how it'd work for Guix-HPC
<rekado_>I expect the event to be leaning heavily towards medicine / diagnostics, but I’d like to learn a little more about the process to participate
<rekado_>our research group has diagnostics projects in the pipeline, and they will likely run on top of Guix, so maybe there’s an association that we can establish.
<civodul>yes, there could be a "work package" (in EU parlance) focusing on reproducibility in a broader project
<ndeck>Hi all
<zimoun>rekado_: ouch “diagnostics projects”, I am always a bit afraid… because here, it implies a lot of “boring” (but necessary) stuff.
<zimoun>rekado_: well, BTW, keep me or ndeck in touch. ndeck is MD and we are strongly connected to hospital business. ;-)
<zimoun>ndeck: hi :-)
<ndeck>Yes, do not hesitate if I can bring insights from a medical point of view
<rekado_>zimoun: with diagnostics I mean things like cancer classification/identification from a tissue sample
<zimoun>rekado_: yeah, in production or from a research (proof-of-concept) point of view?
<rekado_>currently it’s research, but we think this would be really useful as a “product” for doctors in the field.
***zimoun` is now known as zimoun
<rekado_>I wonder if the Guix HPC project’s twitter account should mention — or if that’s better left to others.
<civodul>i'd lean towards leaving it to others, for now at least
<zimoun>I agree with civodul. For now at least. :-)
<rekado_>yeah, I think it would be good for @GuixHPC to sit this one out.
<rekado_>that account has been pretty focused on how Guix relates to HPC and science, but hasn’t made any noise about the ongoing GNU/FSF/rms issue.
<rekado_>I think we should keep it this way
*zimoun civodul
<PurpleSym>I’m a little out of the loop. What’s going on with this
<zimoun>raté :-)
<civodul>PurpleSym: some of us are trying to build a new umbrella for GNU packages, with transparent decision-making, that's all :-)
<civodul>the site has all the details
<PurpleSym>So, in essence, a fork of the FSF?
<zimoun>PurpleSym: rekado_ did the answer here: <>
<PurpleSym>Ah, yeah, as I thought it’s again about rms.
<civodul>also, FSF is an advocacy org, GNU is a free software project, different things
<civodul>forking an org must be tricky :-)
