Monitoring Tropical Forest Recovery Capacity Using RADAR Satellite Images

Recent extreme droughts combined with accelerating human exploitation are pushing tropical forests to the point where they cannot recover, making them vulnerable to large unprecedented wildfires. This causes an urgent need to monitor the recovery capacity of tropical forests. To address this challenge, the SURF computing infrastructure was used.

Supporting data trustworthiness using a repository policy generation tool

 NI4OS-Europe developed the Repository Policy Generator (RePol), an opensource web application that facilitates the process of drafting repository policies. RePol is available on NI4OS- Europe service catalogue, a regional catalogue through which all the project’s services are onboarded to EOSC

Developing an interoperable central hub for Social Sciences and Humanities resources.

The Social Sciences and Humanities communities needed a central point to gather and exchange information about their tools, services, and datasets. Although plenty of project websites, service registries, and data repositories existed, they were mostly fragmented. 

Enabling the maximal re-use of data while ensuring IPR compliance.

Based on NI4OS-Europe’s research, legal uncertainty about usage rights and high costs in clearance of licensing issues are very often a matter of concern when it comes to newly produced content but mostly the creation of derivative works, i.e. work that is produced based on other sources. Before sharing one’s research it is important to correctly clear copyrights for any material that may have been used.
