OVERVIEW:  The Science Demonstrator pilots a demonstrator service for fast and highly scalable exchange of data across repositories storing research datasets, manuscripts and scientific software.

SCIENTIFIC OBJECTIVES OF THE DEMONSTRATOR:

  • showcase how scholarly communication resources can be effectively, regularly and reliably exchanged across systems
  • apply ResourceSync protocol on real-world use cases

  • show data synchronization across a cross-disciplinary network of repositories and between repositories and global added-value services

FAIR CHALLENGES:

  • FINDABILITY & ACCESSIBILITY: increasing resources findability and accessibility on the web

  • INTEROPERABILITY: improving interoperability of scientific repositories

  • REUSABILITY: increase resources reuse in big data analytics tasks involving text and data mining

  • increasing scalability of data exchange among scholarly communication systems

IMPACT:

  • a clear path to go beyond the current state of the art in information exchange between EOSC data providers and services

  • scalable client/server implementation of the ResourceSync protocol for easy adoption by data providers

  • awareness of existing issues and the proposed solution

TECHNICAL FOCUS:

  • the demonstrator will be deployed within the CORE infrastructure

  • the CORE infrastructure consists of small clusters for harvesting, indexing, processing and storing data
