The ambition of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is to develop a “Web of FAIR Data and services’ for science in Europe. EOSC will be a multi-disciplinary environment where researchers can publish, find and re-use data, tools and services, enabling them to conduct their work better. EOSC is enabled by federating existing data infrastructures and co-created in a series of funded projects and initiatives from member states and associated countries.
EGI, a key asset for the EOSC
EGI Federation and EOSC
EOSC builds on existing infrastructure and services supported by the EC, the Member States and research communities. It brings these together in a federated ‘system of systems’ approach, adding value by aggregating content and enabling services to be used together.
EGI delivers the computing platform that serves as a federated secure, and trustworthy hosting environment for European core research data exploitation across organizations, projects and national boundaries
EGI provides key components of the EOSC Core, such as the EOSC Marketplace and the EOSC Portal AAI infrastructure, service availability monitoring, usage accounting, the helpdesk, and policies and processes for the provisioning of the EOSC federated ‘web of data and services’
EGI coordinates the EOSC service portfolio and the service provider onboarding process
EGI coordinates EOSC DIH, an international and multi-partner cooperation that supports companies in easily accessing the digital technologies and services offered by the EOSC
EGI coordinates dedicated user support actions such as the EOSC Early Adopter Programme
EGI representatives co-chair or contribute to EOSC Task forces working on specific topics that are important for the realisation of EOSC
