EOSC Future-INFRAEOSC-07 use case webinar – Pan-European digital assets supporting research communities: Benefits & opportunities

  • By Anu Märkälä

On 5-6 December 2022, EOSC Future and the INFRAEOSC-07 projects (C-SCALE, DICE, EGI-ACE, OpenAIRE Nexus, Reliance) are hosting an online use case showcase. Check out the agenda and register for this online interactive event by 4 December, 23.59 CET.

Over 2 half-day webinars, actual EOSC users will present how their research communities are using EOSC digital assets to address scientific and societal challenges related to 3 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):

  • Climate action (SDG 13)
  • Industry, Innovation & infrastructure (SDG 9)
  • Good health & well-being (SDG 3)

There will also be a session with use cases related to Open Science more broadly.

Why ‘use cases’?

The demonstrative, first-hand format of the event will enable real research communities to show how their work can be leveraged by EOSC.

Researchers, disciplinary groups and anyone interested to learn about both EOSC-related tools and services...

ESCAPE ESAP and Citizen Science | Supporting Science Analysis and Enhancing Scientific Research

  • By Luigi Colucci

When: 5th December 2022 3PM CET (1 hour webinar)

REGISTER NOW

Science platforms are central hubs where users can access and analyse data, collaborate with their colleagues, and publish their results. ESCAPE ESAP (ESFRI Science Analysis Platform) provides a common framework and toolkit for building science platforms, making possible for ESFRIs — together with other projects and institutions — to quickly assemble their existing and new service offerings to form coherent and approachable platforms that directly meet user needs and help them get their science done.

A very wide range of scientific data analysis involves problems that cannot easily be solved algorithmically. Machine learning algorithms can in principle approximate any function, but even they typically require truth sets for training. Therefore crowdsourced data analysis by volunteers, ie citizen science, is critical for many science goals. This also engages by far the largest, and arguably the most overlooked, group...

ESCAPE to the Future Event Recommits ESCAPE Partners in Collaboration for Open Science

  • By Rita Meneses

Many of Europe's biggest facilities in physics-related disciplines have just cemented a long-term deal to commit to sharing and processing open data. This agreement was signed at the “ESCAPE to the Future” conference on October 25-26, 2022, where partners of the European Science Cluster of Astronomy & Particle physics ESFRI research infrastructure (ESCAPE) project as well as members of the scientific community and the European Commission gathered at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Science in Brussels (Belgium).

ESCAPE, initiated in 2019, has brought together a cluster of ESFRI (European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures) projects and other world-class research organizations with the aim of implementing a section of a European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) to foster Open Science in astrophysics and particle physics.

2-day webinar: National infrastructures in EOSC

  • By Athina Papadopoulou

On 11-12 October, we are organising two online workshops focused on presenting the collaboration of eInfrastructures at the EU level.

On Day 1, from 10.00 to 13.00 CEST, we will address how eInfras collaborate to jointly build and operate components of the EOSC Core and facilitate the EOSC Exchange (i.e., onboarding of services and data from communities, whether thematic or institutional). The goal is to engage national members, present what is happening at the EU level, and learn how they propagate, extend and execute such collaborations at the national level. 

On 12 October, from 10.00 to 15.00 CEST, the second online workshop will focus on presenting the collaboration of eInfrastructures at the EU level in the framework of EOSC Future to jointly reach out to the various communities and how they jointly build mechanisms and tools to support them.

27 September - BioDT use cases: unique demonstrators to test the biodiversity Digital Twin prototype

  • By Federico Drago

The BioDT project aims to develop the biodiversity BioDT prototype to help better predict global biodiversity dynamics and how species interact with their environment and with each other.
In order to test the work the project team is bringing forward, the BioDT team will develop over the course of three years, groups of use cases that showcase how BioDT can examine its predictive performance and address biodiversity challenges through scenario simulations, predictions and biomonitoring methods.

The four use cases groups that BioDT is developing focus on:  

  • Species response to environmental change, which puts attention on biodiversity dynamics and ecosystems services;
  • Genetically detected biodiversity, that aims to bring research forward for crop wild relatives and genetic resources for food security and DNA detected biodiversity, poorly known habitats;
  • Dynamics and threats from and for species of policy concern, that explores invasive species and endangered species;
  • Species interactions with each other and with humans, that studies disease outbreaks and pollinators.

FAIR-IMPACT and FAIRCORE4EOSC collaboration explained in two brand new videos!

  • By Federico Drago

Project and Technical coordinators showcase a FAIR Collaboration for Open Science in Europe.

This June 2022, two European Horizon projects kicked off in Amsterdam, FAIRCORE4EOSC and FAIR-IMPACT. Both projects will contribute to the implementation of the FAIR principles across the European Open Science Cloud in close collaboration with other actors in the EOSC ecosystem.  We interviewed both project and technical coordinators about the envisaged collaboration, watch the videos now!

Contributing to the web of FAIR data and services

In 2015 the vision of a European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) emerged. EOSC would provide an open and trusted environment for accessing and managing a wide range of publicly funded research data and related services, helping researchers reap the full benefits of data-driven science. EOSC is currently in its implementation phase (2021-2027) which requires active engagement and support to ensure widespread implementation and adoption of the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable,...

ESCAPE to the future

  • By Luigi Colucci

ESCAPE (European Science Cluster of Astronomy & Particle physics ESFRI research infrastructures) is an H2020 project and one of the five ESFRis cluster that aims to produce versatile solutions to support the implementation of EOS, encourage cross-fertilisation and foster joint multiwavelength/multi-messenger capabilities in the astronomy, astrophysics and particle astrophysics communities.

The project brings together a cluster with ESFRIs projects with aligned challenges of data-driven research, with demonstrated capabilities in addressing various stages of data workflow and concerned with fundamental research through complementary approaches.

To support the EOSC implementation, ESCAPE has created the “EOSC Cell”, a cross-border and multidisciplinary environment to enable the EOSC community to adopt the services, e-infrastructures, and data stewardship of ESFRI projects.
