European E-Infrastructure Services Gateway project (eInfraCentral http://einfracentral.eu/ aims to gather structured information about all digital services for research from independent providers to create a single entry point to European e-infrastructure services. This survey is designed for digital service providers, their users, customers and interested stakeholders to help to solicit requirements and needs for the development of a common e-infrastructure service catalogue in Europe.

There are decades of lessons learnt and resources to build upon … where does the EOSCpilot project fit in?
According to a recent article in The Economist, the world’s most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data. Today Europe is the largest worldwide producer of scientific data, but an insufficient and fragmented infrastructure means that data is not being exploited to its full potential.
The EOSCpilot project is excited to announce its 1st Stakeholder Engagement event, which will take place at the SQUARE in Brussels on the 28th and 29th November 2017.
This promises to be an extremely interactive gathering of representatives and experts from the numerous stakeholder groups that drive the project, enabling them to have their voice in the first phase of development of the future European Open Science Cloud.
First Call for Science Demonstrators for the EOSCpilot (European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot) project
Applications open until 30th April 2017
“We must create infrastructure. Europe’s final transition must be one from fragmented datasets to an integrated European Open Science Cloud. By 2020, we want all European researchers to be able to deposit, access and analyse European scientific data through a European Open Science Cloud”
The H2020 BlueBRIDGE project has just launched a Competitive Call for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) operating in the fisheries, marine, environmental, ecological and aquaculture). The scope of the call is to support 5 SMEs in solving data management issues by using, completely free of charge, the BlueBRIDGE services and resources (i.e. datasets, services and technologies, and data analytics).
As we are in an age of “data deluge”, private and public institutions and research communities need to tackle the high demand of data-intensive science. The potential of sharing data is incredibly high and indeed can completely revolutionise the way researchers work.
Applications open until 30 April 2017, 12am CEST
The First Call for Science Demonstrators to the EOSCpilot (European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot) project invites applications from institutions with interesting challenges that would help define the infrastructure needed by European researchers, while showing the scientific excellence and societal impact that could be achieved by EOSC (European Open Science Cloud).
In view of the project kick-off meeting, OpenAIRE promoted the European Open Science Cloud on their blog. Ilaria Fava, project manager at University of Göttingen and author of the article, provided a complete overview on the project's outcomes and challenges, coming out from the kick-off meeting, which took place in Amsterdam, on the 17th and 18th of January 2017.
