Event | Science Mesh - Unlocking Open Science and Collaborative Research Landscape

  • By Rita Meneses

The CS3MESH4EOSC final event, taking place on 22 June 2023, at the EGI Conference in Poznan (Poland), will showcase how the Science Mesh is contributing to an easier and more robust open science across Europe, thanks to novel approaches for data sharing and synchronisation. The event will have a hybrid format (Poznan and online).

The Science Mesh is a federation of distributed data storage and sharing services, known as Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) services, where cloud platforms from different providers are interconnected. Science Mesh users can easily share and manage data through the familiar interfaces of their institutional services and collaborate with colleagues from other organisations. The Science Mesh services are not specific to any particular research discipline, since it addresses the needs of a wide array of users interested in scientific collaboration. It can be used either by user communities within existing Research infrastructures such...

Exemplary Digital Services Enabling Open Science: CS3MESH4EOSC listed a contributor to the development and implementation of the EOSC

  • By Rita Meneses

CS3MESH4EOSC was mentioned as a H2020 project that is contributiong to the development and implementation of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). CS3MESH4EOSC joined the projects Cos4Cloud and TRIPLE under the EU Horizon Results Booster, an initiative that enables the these projects to achieve a higher societal impact. These three projects are mentioned in the "Exemplary Digital Services Enabling Open Science" report, published in April 2023.


The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) initiative aims to provide a federated and open multi-disciplinary environment where researchers, innovators, companies and citizens can publish, find and reuse data, tools and services for research, innovation and educational purposes. EOSC is envisioned to foster a change of culture across scientific communities and research infrastructures towards Open Science, developing a ‘Web of FAIR Data and services’ for science in Europe upon which a wide range of value-added services...
