Learning outcomes of the workshop:
- Expectations on the EOSC Core
- Benefits of the EOSC Core
- Potential contribution from the engaged organisations
The EOSC Future project will develop an environment with interoperable research outputs, including publications and code, as well as access to professional data services and resources such as compute,storage and preservation. It will federate existing research infrastructure in a ‘system of systems’ approach that will support European researchers in managing the entire lifecycle of data: from sharing, managing and exploiting their own data to discovering, re-using and recombining the data sets of others.
In particular, the EOSC Future project will support the establishment of the so-called EOSC Core. “The EOSC-Core provides the minimum functionality that is required to enable the federation of data and services across domains and countries. It supports FAIR data principles by providing the means to discover, share, access and reuse data and services. These elements address key technical, cultural and policy decisions of EOSC and they must be maintained over the long term” (SRIA v0.1).
This 90-minute workshop will provide an overview of EOSC Future’s plans for the implementation of a fully functional EOSC Core, highlighting how it could support and facilitate the daily work of researchers in the future. After an initial EOSC Future presentation on the EOSC Core, the workshop with continue with a panel discussion focusing on the following questions:
- What will be the impact of the EOSC Core on national and international research infrastructures?
- What are the needs and expectations of the research institutions (e.g libraries, repositories, universities, etc.)?
- What role will the EOSC Core and the standards we adopt play in an international context?
The input collected during the workshop will be used by the EOSC Future project to collect requirements for the EOSC Core. The workshop will be also a way to establish direct collaboration channels with the above-mentioned stakeholders.
