Visitors, users and providers of the EOSC Portal can expect to see significant changes to the EOSC Portal with the combined efforts of EOSC-hub, OpenAIRE Advance and the newly-launched EOSC Enhance project.
Active as of 1 December 2019, EOSC Enhance is tasked with improving and enhancing the discoverability of the EOSC services and resources, further developing and augmenting the EOSC catalogue, and enriching the EOSC data offering by connecting the thematic clusters and clouds currently in development. These activities highly complement the foundational work on the EOSC Portal done by EOSC-hub and OpenAIRE-Advance and its other partners eInfraCentral and EOSCpilot.
Crystallising this collaboration will be the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between these projects that will allow them to establish joint coherent work plans to boost the functionalities and usability of the EOSC portal in preparation for the upcoming INFRAEOSC03 call. Much of the tasks that these projects will collaborate on relate to the onboarding and management of services in the Portal. EOSC Enhance will build upon EOSC-hub and OpenAIRE prior work and outputs in these areas.
The three projects will also collaborate on continuously enriching the content side of the EOSC Portal through their involvement in the EOSC Portal Editorial Board.
