About the Cluster Collaboration Interest Group


The EOSC already has a high impact on access and handling of Open Data. With the results from the current EC funded EINFRA projects interdisciplinary exploitation of data will improve even further. The governance and technical roadmap of EOSC is developed in collaboration between the EOSC management boards and the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI).


The five ESFRI cluster projects represent the wealth of ESFRI and are at the heart of EOSC. They implement interfaces to integrate computer and data management solutions, in order to create cross-border and open cooperation spaces thereby promoting the EOSC to their large research communities.


This new Interest Group (IG) welcomes representatives of the ESFRI cluster projects and aims to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration and discussion on topics related to EOSC and its implications for ESFRI.


The findings of this IG will feed directly into the deliberations of the EOSC Executive Board (EB) and Working Groups (WGs) and contributes to the advancement of the EOSC.


About the EOSC Interest Groups (IGs)


The Interest Groups (IGs) were created to give the EOSC related community the opportunity to collaborate, share information, and discuss EOSC related topics. The first four IGs were approved by the projects participating at the EOSC Coordination Day in Budapest, on November 28-29 2019.

The EOSCSecretariat.eu set up an IT platform to support the Interest Groups in their activities. This platform includes a workspace based on a public and open collaborative virtual space where the members can discuss, share documents and structure their collaboration. 

The Interest Groups are open to all members of the EOSC community and EOSC-related projects, no limit in the number of participants from a single project is envisaged. Private area of discussion can be implemented upon request.

Each Interest Group is facilitated by at least one member of the EOSCsecretariat.eu.
