The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) aims to make it easier for researchers to share and combine research data, also across geographical and disciplinary boundaries.
The EOSC-hub project funded within the EC’s Horizon2020 programme has a consortium of 100+ partners from more than 50 countries. The consortium will develop the vision of the Hub as the integration and management system of the future European Open Science Cloud.
EOSC-hub 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 will significantly reduce the fragmentation of the IT facilities and digital tools in Europe. Project director is Per Öster of CSC-IT Centre for Science, Finland.
DANS will contribute in particular to 1) the development of policies to facilitate the sharing and safe processing of research data, 2) the integration of trusted digital repository services and long-term preservation and 3) the support of researchers and support staff in the proper management of research data.
EOSC-hub will liaise closely with OpenAIRE-Advance, a project set up to support the Open Access/Open Data mandates in Europe.
