Services for the European Open Science Cloud

EOSC-hub contribution to the European Open Science Cloud

The Implementation Roadmap of the European Open Science Cloud was released in March 2018 and presents the outcome of the exploration of appropriate governance and financing mechanisms for EOSC based on six strategic action lines: a) architecture, (b) data, (c) services, (d) access and interfaces, (e) rules and (f) governance.

EOSC-hub is contributing to these strategic directions as follows:

Architecture:

EOSC-hub provides a framework to manage services sourced from a number of service providers and plays the role of service integrator.

Data:

EOSC-hub offers a discovery and access channel to FAIR-accredited datasets via the EOSC-hub Marketplace.

Services:

EOSC-hub contributes to the definition of a participatory and lightweight service portfolio management process in collaboration with the participating service providers. It also engages with the demand and supply side of the EOSC, by developing and operating a marketplace as one entry point to EOSC.

Rules of Participation:

EOSC-hub collaborates with partners and external projects and initiatives to establish a corpus of policies that is attractive and provides value for both service providers and service users.
