Research-oriented services, trust, collaboration, sustainability - key messages from the ESFRI Science Clusters and e-Infrastructures

  • By Rudolf Dimper

The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) will “enable a trusted, virtual, federated environment in Europe to store, share and reuse digital outputs from research (including publications, data, metadata and software) across borders and scientific disciplines”1. Today, at the end of 2020, many building blocks are in place and on-going EOSC projects endeavour to enrich the EOSC ecosystem. To ensure strong engagement by research communities, we believe that this is the time to re-orient the EOSC activities towards higher relevance for these communities.

Put the scientific user communities at the centre of EOSC - ExPaNDS and PaNOSC's suggestions to the SRIA

  • By Sophie Servan

EOSC is Europe’s virtual environment for all researchers to store, manage, analyse and re-use data for research, innovation and educational purposes. It will give Europe a global lead to ensure that scientists reap the full benefits of data-driven science.

Visions, requirements and needs for Future Research Environments in the Healthcare domain

  • By Katharina Flicker

As partner of the project consortium EOSCSecretariat, TU Wien is responsible for Researcher Engagement. This task comprises the organization of workshops, consultations and an exploration series with members from university networks, funding bodies and various research communities. In order to address the latter in a structured way, TU Wien brought experts from the healthcare domain together to discuss their visions, needs and requirements for future research environments. If you are interested in further details and this session's findings - among them a collection of services - please, check out this post.

EOSC Interest Group on Researcher Engagement and Use Cases: A Collection of EOSC Use Cases

  • By Katharina Flicker

Many EOSC Use Cases and EOSC in practice stories have been carried out since the EOSC initiative was launched. Given the amount of EOSC related projects, however, keeping track of and learning from the plenty experiences gathered is often a hard thing to do. If you're interested in how the EOSC Interest Group (IG) Researcher Engagement and Use Cases tried to meet these challenges, keep on reading, please!

WEBINAR: PHIDIAS - Steps forward in detection and identification of anomalous atmospheric events

  • By Julie Arteza

From 2021, European atmospheric sounds missions will deliver each day several terabytes of raw datacubes at high spatial/temporal/spectral resolutions. This represents an unprecedented amount of high-quality atmospheric data. A key challenge is to provide scientists and users with approaches and capacities to comprehensively deal with all available information.
