The role of ESFRI clusters in EOSC: technical and policy challenges


Presentations from ESFRI cluster projects
Let's meet at: 09:30 - 11:00 | 17 April 2018
Chair: Sara Garavelli (Trust-IT Services)

You can't miss it if you are an ESFRI cluster, a scientific community representative, a policy maker

Objectives: The session aims to present the various ways of ESFRI cluster participation in the EOSC discussing technical and policy challenges.


Research Infrastructures such as the ones on the ESFRI roadmap and others, are characterised by the very significant data volumes they generate and handle, and by the innovative applications and tools that they bring together in order to ensure effective research data exploitation by thousands of researchers across scientific disciplines and research projects. Effective data preservation, sharing and reuse of this data are a fundamental component of today's research infrastructures and Horizon 2020 actions and the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) aim to facilitate this.  

The current INFRAEOSC-04-2018 call aims to ensure the connection of the research infrastructures identified in the ESFRI Roadmap to the EOSC-hub and encourages the ESFRI clusters to adopt and reuse the services made available through the EOSC-hub.

The purpose of this session is to share information on how different research infrastructure will support the EOSC mission of becoming "the data infrastructure commons serving the needs of scientists" and to discuss forms of collaborations between research infrastructures and EOSC-hub to contribute together to the integration and interoperability of data and tools within the EOSC.
We will discuss the role of the ESFRI clusters in the emerging EOSC and provide a forum for scientific communities to discuss the various ways of engagement with EOSC and specifically EOSC-hub.
