20-07. Sustaining benefits and future outlook discussion programme effective sind 2020 offers the possibility to host about one workshop per year.

Containercloud collaboration is an option for continuation. However, the landscape changes fast in the OpenShift and Kubernetes domains.

A continued collaboration on Lean/AI toolkit could potentially take place in EOSC Nordic.

Regarding Lean AI Stack (new release expected today): A similar platform, but closed source, is available from a Finnish company called Valohai:

The Glenna2 collaborators are looking forward to up and coming NeIC opencall opportunities related to cloud and AI topics.

SG 20-08. AOB and self assessment

Wiki and certificate problems experienced during meeting preparation otherwise this was a good finalization meeting.
