EOSC Future RDA Open Call # 6: RDA cross-disciplinary adoption in support of EOSC

The EOSC Future project and Research Data Alliance (RDA) are launching an open call for ‘RDA cross-disciplinary adoption in support of EOSC’. Small community projects are invited to test out and adapt community-led and cross-disciplinary best practices within the EOSC environment, in line with RDA outputs and recommendations. Applications are open until 11 July 2022, 16.00 CEST. Find out more via the EOSC Future Grants Platform.

An important feature of the EOSC Future project is sustained support for the myriad research communities working within and across disciplines. In line with this, the open call for ‘RDA cross-disciplinary adoption in support of EOSC’ sets out to widen EOSC engagement and adoption of cross-disciplinary research best practices in research communities throughout Europe and beyond.

Applicants are expected to propose a coherent dissemination plan that covers 6-9 months of work. Interesting profiles will not only represent community-based, domain-specific research but also exemplify a commitment to FAIR data and data interoperability.

Proposals should be able to demonstrate, among other elements:

  • a methodology for streamlining cross-disciplinary research
  • specific benefits for research communities using EOSC services (e.g. data management & storage, cloud services, etc.)
  • examples or lessons learnt related to open, community-led standards and cross-domain interoperability
  • a commitment to the cross-disciplinary implementation of RDA outputs and recommendations.

What does the grant include?

This call will award up to 4 grants, each totalling a maximum of €50 000, over the course of the EOSC Future project.

Who can apply?

The Research Data Alliance welcomes applications from persons or groups committed to FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) data and other principles that RDA holds dear. Applicants can be researchers (junior or senior), data scientists, part of a European research group, organisation or SME. Note: This call is not open to members of the EOSC Future consortium or projects based outside of an EU Member State or Associated Country.

Further criteria and conditions are detailed on the EOSC Future Grants Platform.


The call is open for applications until 11 July 2022, 16.00 CEST.
