“Resource” is a generic term that includes both services and data, as well as other useful items like data collections and training material.
The EOSC Catalogue and Marketplace facilitates sharing and discovery of, and access to EOSC Resources, that are provided by EOSC Providers, from different e-Infrastructures, research organisations, EOSC initiatives and European Strategy Forum for Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) domain clusters. The EOSC Catalogue and Marketplace includes Resources (e.g. computing, storage, file transfer, analytics).
In October 2022 the EOSC Catalogue and Marketplace was enhanced to also include:
- Research Products such as publications, research data, research software, other products
- Data Sources including repositories, data archives, software repositories, libraries, that provide a way to access Research Products
- Catalogues that allow external catalogues to be linked into the EOSC Catalogue and Marketplace, allowing their services and data to be found and accessed from the EOSC Catalogue and Marketplace.
- Training Resources including activity plans, assessments, assessment items, course/lesson plans, educator curriculum guides, online courses, physical learning resources, recorded lessons/courses/webinars, supporting documents, textbooks, unit plans or other resources.
