Scientific communities in EOSC-hub and EOSCpilot


Scientific communities in EOSC-hub and EOSCpilot
Let's meet at: 16:00 - 18:00 | 16 April 2018
Chairs: Gergely Sipos (EGI) & Claudio Cacciari (CINECA)

You can't miss it if you are a researcher or a scientific community representative


The session aims to present the various ways of science community participation in the EOSC-hub and EOSCpilot projects, and demonstrate concrete examples of engagement for scientific communities.


EOSC-hub is a 33 million Euro H2020 project that started in January 2018 with the involvement of over 100 institutes. In the next three years the project will establish the first elements of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), in the form of a 'Hub'. The Hub acts as a single contact point for researchers and innovators to discover, access, use and reuse a broad spectrum of services for advanced, data-driven research. The Hub services are delivered towards researchers and communities via a single service Marketplace. The EOSC-hub consortium already includes service providers from 3 e-infrastructure communities (EGI, EUDAT, INDIGO-DataCloud), and from 18 scientific communities. The group of science community service providers is expected to radically grow in the next years through various initiatives, such as the EOSCpilot project that supports the development of new scientific services in 2017-18.

This session will present the various ways in which scientific communities are currently involved in EOSC-hub and EOSCpilot, and will bring specific examples from communities that provide a 'Thematic Service', operate a 'Competence Centre', or work or on a 'Scientific Demonstrator'. The session provides a forum for scientific communities to understand the various ways of engagement with EOSC-hub and EOSCpilot, and to ask questions from project representatives about related topics.
