EOSC Portal - A gateway to information and resources in EOSC
The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is federating services so that researchers can find, combine and process data from different scientific disciplines and communities. At this stage of implementation, EOSC already provides a powerful tool for solving complex data-processing challenges in a variety of domains.
The EOSC Platform Early Adopter Programme offers a rich set of resources and expertise to research communities and service providers. It specifically looks to support use cases in need of EOSC resources from different disciplines or e-infrastructures and the integration of new services into the EOSC-Core.
Through this programme, EOSC Future aims to:
As part of the EOSC Platform Early Adopter Programme, you will be able to access a number of services and resources that will support your community or institution/organisation throughout the entire research life cycle. You will also receive constant support from our experts, who will help you identify, access and use the services and resources that best fit your requirements.
If you are operating services, our experts will support you with ‘onboarding’ them into EOSC. This will allow you to not only offer your services to the broader EOSC community but also benefit from EOSC-Core services (i.e. AAI, Helpdesk, Monitoring, Accounting, etc.), a series of capabilities that can simplify access to your services and reduce operational costs.
The selected applications will be organised into ‘Early Adopter Projects’ with well-defined work plans and objectives (e.g. onboarding a service into EOSC, running a data analysis workflow, etc.).
Each project will have a duration of 3, 6 or 12 months, depending on the nature and level of complexity.
The Early Adopter Projects will receive support in the following areas:
The resources assigned to each selected project will be established on a case-by-case basis, in collaboration with the applicants and the resource/service providers during the technical assessment of the proposal, to guarantee an adequate piloting of the project.
Taking note of the above, the Early Adopter Programme aims to provide valuable technical support from the EOSC Future project and partners; however, it does not include direct financial support to applicants.
In a second stage, successful projects will have the possibility to scale up their project in capacity and capability, thus moving further towards a full-scale production environment.
Keep in mind, you should be able to demonstrate the research outcomes of your project to the EOSC community, in turn, stimulating further uptake.
|EOSC Future||Operates the EOSC-Core, the set of internal services that facilitates EOSC operations upon which researcher services can rely and integrate with as appropriate: Resource Catalogue, Marketplace, AAI Federation, Order Management, Helpdesk, Monitoring, Accounting|
|C-SCALE||Services for the discovery, access and processing of EO/Copernicus data in EOSC.|
Cutting-edge data management services (data archive, policies-based data storage, personal and project workspaces, data repository and data discovery services) with a significant amount of storage resources for EOSC users.
Delivers the EOSC Compute Platform and contributes to the EOSC Data Commons through a federation of cloud compute and storage facilities, Platform as a Service (PaaS), and data spaces with analytics tools and federated access services.
|OpenAIRE Nexus||A framework of services for EOSC that can greatly assist in publishing research, monitoring its impact and helping to promote its discovery.|
|Reliance||Services to boost the discovery of and access to research data (including Copernicus data), improve the extraction of relevant information and manage the research lifecycle via research objects.|
ARCHIVER (Archiving and Preservation for Research Environments) has spent over 3 years designing, prototyping and piloting innovative new services for the Long Term Digital Preservation (LTDP) of scientific datasets. During the project, multiple data intensive organizations representing several research domains (CERN, DESY, PIC and EMBL-EBI) have worked closely and collaboratively with suppliers (Arkivum and LIBNOVA) on the research and development of new services and solutions for scientific data preservation relevant for the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
The programme is aimed at:
Do you need support for a more targeted use case? Then the calls for use cases by the different INFRAEOSC-07 projects might me better suited to your needs.
Submissions can be made any time, following the instructions below. There will be a cut-off deadline every 2 months, whereby applications submitted up to that date will be evaluated.
Applicants will be informed of the evaluation committee's decision within 1 month following the cut-off date.
Next cut-off date: 15 September
Please consult the selection criteria and application form below for more information.
The EOSC Early Adopter Programme is intended for projects that have a well-defined scientific purpose and need a federated environment to combine and analyse research data.
Applications will be evaluated by a team of technical experts from EOSC Future and partners according to the following criteria:
