ESCAPE ESAP and Citizen Science | Supporting Science Analysis and Enhancing Scientific Research

  • By Luigi Colucci

When: 5th December 2022 3PM CET (1 hour webinar)

REGISTER NOW

Science platforms are central hubs where users can access and analyse data, collaborate with their colleagues, and publish their results. ESCAPE ESAP (ESFRI Science Analysis Platform) provides a common framework and toolkit for building science platforms, making possible for ESFRIs — together with other projects and institutions — to quickly assemble their existing and new service offerings to form coherent and approachable platforms that directly meet user needs and help them get their science done.

A very wide range of scientific data analysis involves problems that cannot easily be solved algorithmically. Machine learning algorithms can in principle approximate any function, but even they typically require truth sets for training. Therefore crowdsourced data analysis by volunteers, ie citizen science, is critical for many science goals. This also engages by far the largest, and arguably the most overlooked, group...

ESCAPE to the Future Event Recommits ESCAPE Partners in Collaboration for Open Science

  • By Rita Meneses

Many of Europe's biggest facilities in physics-related disciplines have just cemented a long-term deal to commit to sharing and processing open data. This agreement was signed at the “ESCAPE to the Future” conference on October 25-26, 2022, where partners of the European Science Cluster of Astronomy & Particle physics ESFRI research infrastructure (ESCAPE) project as well as members of the scientific community and the European Commission gathered at the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Science in Brussels (Belgium).

ESCAPE, initiated in 2019, has brought together a cluster of ESFRI (European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures) projects and other world-class research organizations with the aim of implementing a section of a European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) to foster Open Science in astrophysics and particle physics. As the ESCAPE project, funded by the H2020 grant, is coming to its end, the members of the cluster shared their results and achievements,...

EOSC DIH is looking for Business Pilots! 3rd call now open

  • By Gwen Franck

Apply between September 21st and October 14th

According to the Digital Agenda for Europe, businesses are strategically placed to use research infrastructure resources and services to enhance growth and foster innovation. The EOSC Digital Innovation Hub (DIH), an international, multi-player cooperation, provides an interface for supporting this commercial innovation.

This month, we are launching the 2nd Expression of Interest (EoI) for Business Pilots. The goal is to onboard businesses developing innovative solutions and – with EOSC technologies and services – help them bring products and services to market. 

Through this EoI, we will also support industry applicants wishing to become service and content providers for the EOSC community.

For instance:

  • data analytics to improve healthcare
  • services for safer and cleaner transport
  • machine learning and AI optimisation
  • applications to reduce the cost of public services.

 The selected business pilots will receive support in, among other areas:

  • accessing e-infrastructure resources and additional technical services;
  • ...

24-28 October: OpenAIRE events during the OA week

  • By Athina Papadopoulou

Programme

Monday 24
11:00 – 12:30 CEST    
The OpenAIRE Research Graph, supporting evidence based R&I indicators

The OpenAIRE Research Graph (ORG) is an Open Access dataset including metadata about different entities that are part of the research lifecycle, such as publications, dataset, software, RPOs, grants, with links among them. This session will highlight how the information in the ORG can support the calculation of Research and Innovation indicators focusing on the use cases under development in the IntelComp project, where the indicators will allow to get insights from current practices, assess the impact and spot the trends in Science, Technology and Innovation.

2-day webinar: National infrastructures in EOSC

  • By Athina Papadopoulou

On 11-12 October, we are organising two online workshops focused on presenting the collaboration of eInfrastructures at the EU level.

On Day 1, from 10.00 to 13.00 CEST, we will address how eInfras collaborate to jointly build and operate components of the EOSC Core and facilitate the EOSC Exchange (i.e., onboarding of services and data from communities, whether thematic or institutional). The goal is to engage national members, present what is happening at the EU level, and learn how they propagate, extend and execute such collaborations at the national level. 

On 12 October, from 10.00 to 15.00 CEST, the second online workshop will focus on presenting the collaboration of eInfrastructures at the EU level in the framework of EOSC Future to jointly reach out to the various communities and how they jointly build mechanisms and tools to support them.

27 September - BioDT use cases: unique demonstrators to test the biodiversity Digital Twin prototype

  • By Federico Drago

The BioDT project aims to develop the biodiversity BioDT prototype to help better predict global biodiversity dynamics and how species interact with their environment and with each other.
In order to test the work the project team is bringing forward, the BioDT team will develop over the course of three years, groups of use cases that showcase how BioDT can examine its predictive performance and address biodiversity challenges through scenario simulations, predictions and biomonitoring methods.

The four use cases groups that BioDT is developing focus on:  

  • Species response to environmental change, which puts attention on biodiversity dynamics and ecosystems services;
  • Genetically detected biodiversity, that aims to bring research forward for crop wild relatives and genetic resources for food security and DNA detected biodiversity, poorly known habitats;
  • Dynamics and threats from and for species of policy concern, that explores invasive species and endangered species;
  • Species interactions with each other and with humans, that studies disease outbreaks and pollinators.
