We want citizens to measure their environment by using smartphones. Most of the citizen science initiatives are focused on one topic: it can be air quality, biodiversity.

Kampal Artificial Intelligence for rare disease diagnosis

In the context of the EOSC-hub project, Kampal Data Solutions is benefitting from storing the healthy and ill patients’ registries to a database on EOSC infrastructure.

Guardomic: bot mitigation engine

Web services owners struggle daily to protect their websites from bot traffic and their users from fraudulent digital ads or cryptocurrency web mining.

DS-DRACO: A cloud framework for state-of-the-art Space Weather data

Space Weather concerns the phenomena that arise from the changing physical conditions of the Sun and its effects at Earth.

BIGcold BBC R&D: video coding and compression

Audiences are consuming more and more video, demanding increasingly higher quality, using a variety of devices including TVs, smartphones, tablets and computers. 

Erasmus Play: accommodation search engine

Erasmus+ is the EU's programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of over €14 billion provides opportunities for Europeans to study, train, and gain experience abroad. 

EOSC-hub Disaster Mitigation Competence Centre Plus (DMCC+)

e-Science & e-Infrastructures are having profound impacts in Asia and have recently been moving towards open science supported by the EOSC-Hub project.

EPOS-ORFEUS and the seismology community

ORFEUS coordinates the seismological waveform services in European Plate Observing System (EPOS).

ELIXIR and the life sciences community

ELIXIR is an organisation aiming to coordinate, integrate and sustain bioinformatics resources – such as databases, computational services, applications – across its member states and enables users in academia and industry to access what is vital for their research. 

EISCAT_3D and the EO community

EISCAT_3D will be the world’s leading facility to explore and study the Earth’s atmosphere and ionosphere, including phenomena such as the aurora borealis (northern lights) and noctilucent clouds.

Euro-Argo and the marine community

Oceanographers work to analyse and interpret measurements of different physical and chemical parameters (temperature, salinity) in order to understand the effects of global warming in marine environments. These parameters are collected by large sea observation consortiums, such as Euro-Argo.

LOFAR and the radio astronomy community

The basic technology of radio telescopes has not changed since the 1960's: large mechanical dish antennas collect signals before a receiver detects and analyses them.
