Services to perform cutting-edge research in Europe

  • By Katharina Flicker

The EOSC initiative aims at supporting more than 1.7 million researchers and boosting interdisciplinary research in Europe. To understand better what the research community needs, the EOSCSecretariat partner TUWien is organizing a series of workshops and an exploration series. The objective is to collect visions, needs and requirements for (future) research environments as well as services that support cutting-edge research. Attached to this post is an interim list of a collection of services.

Research-oriented services, trust, collaboration, sustainability - key messages from the ESFRI Science Clusters and e-Infrastructures

  • By Rudolf Dimper

The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) will “enable a trusted, virtual, federated environment in Europe to store, share and reuse digital outputs from research (including publications, data, metadata and software) across borders and scientific disciplines”1. Today, at the end of 2020, many building blocks are in place and on-going EOSC projects endeavour to enrich the EOSC ecosystem. To ensure strong engagement by research communities, we believe that this is the time to re-orient the EOSC activities towards higher relevance for these communities.

EOSC Interest Group on Researcher Engagement and Use Cases: A Collection of EOSC Use Cases

  • By Katharina Flicker

Many EOSC Use Cases and EOSC in practice stories have been carried out since the EOSC initiative was launched. Given the amount of EOSC related projects, however, keeping track of and learning from the plenty experiences gathered is often a hard thing to do. If you're interested in how the EOSC Interest Group (IG) Researcher Engagement and Use Cases tried to meet these challenges, keep on reading, please!

WEBINAR: PHIDIAS - Steps forward in detection and identification of anomalous atmospheric events

  • By Julie Arteza

From 2021, European atmospheric sounds missions will deliver each day several terabytes of raw datacubes at high spatial/temporal/spectral resolutions. This represents an unprecedented amount of high-quality atmospheric data. A key challenge is to provide scientists and users with approaches and capacities to comprehensively deal with all available information.

Visions, needs and requirements for (future) research environments: An exploration series by TUWien

  • By Katharina Flicker

Since the start of the EOSC initiative, the needs of potential stakeholders were put into focus – among them the wishes and requirements of researchers and research institutions. To understand what the research community requires to perform cutting-edge research, the EOSCSecretariat partner TUWien launched an exploration series with e.g. members of the Marie Curie Alumni Association, ERC grant holders and Nobel Laureates in December 2019.

EOSC Secretariat at ESOF 2020 - Research Evaluation and Incentives to boost Open Science and Research Careers

  • By Federico Drago

Everybody is talking about Open Science and FAIR data but can you really make a living (and a good career) out of it? Will my career get better if I FAIRify my data? Or will it just give me a headache? When someone will evaluate my research, will the fact that my data complies with all the Open Science best practices matter? On 5 September at 10:15 CEST join the virtual session organised by at ESOF 2020, in collaboration with FAIRsFAIR, EOSC-Pillar, EOSC-Synergy, EOSC-Nordic, ExPaNDS, and NI4OS-Europe.
