The goal of the workshop was to discuss opportunities to work towards the definition of a common infrastructure to enable researchers to authenticate to  BMS (biomedical) research infrastructures and manage their access rights to access services.

The workshop was hosted by ECRIN office in Paris.

The notes from the meeting and the conclusions are available online.
