EOSCpilot is supporting the first phase in the development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). It will:
- Propose and trial governance frameworks for the EOSC and contribute to the development of European open science policy and best practice.
- Develop a number of demonstrators functioning as high-profile pilots that integrate services and infrastructures to show interoperability and its benefits in a number of scientific domains, and
- Engage with a broad range of stakeholders, crossing borders and communities, to build trust and skills required for adoption of an open approach to scientific research.
brings together multiple service providers to create the Hub, a single contact point for European researchers and innovators to discover, access, use and reuse a broad spectrum of resources for advanced data-driven research. The project mobilises providers from the EGI Federation, EUDAT CDI, INDIGO-DataCloud and other major European research infrastructures to deliver a common catalogue of research data, services and software for research. EOSC-hub collaborates closely with GÉANT, EOSCpilot and OpenAIRE-Advance projects to deliver a consistent service offer to research communities across Europe. EOSCpilot will provide the trial governance frameworks for the EOSC and contribute to the development of European open science policy and best practice. They will be implemented by EOSC-hub and other EOSC projects, in particular OpenAIRE and FREYA, as well as other future projects funded under INFRAEOSC programme.
