Achieving interoperability within EOSC is essential to federate services and provide added value for users. EOSC-hub submitted its contribution to the draft EOSC Interoperability Framework, now open for comment. The document identifies general principles and organises them into the four layers: technical, semantic, organisational and legal. The framework also contains a proposal for how the management of FAIR Digital Objects should be done in the context of EOSC.
The initial draft has been developed by members of the FAIR and Architecture Working Groups. The authors conducted an extensive review of related literature and interviewed key stakeholders from ERICs, ESFRI projects, service providers and research communities. This helped to identify problems and requirements in each aspect of interoperability to provide recommendations for EOSC. Legal issues will be included in the next version, based on recommendations from a commissioned study.
