EOSC is an ambitious project that aims to develop a Web of FAIR Data and Services for science in Europe.


The ambition of the European Open Science Cloud, known as EOSC, is to develop a 'Web of FAIR Data and Services’ for science in Europe. EOSC will be a multi-disciplinary environment where researchers can publish, find and re-use data, tools and services, enabling them to better conduct their work.

EOSC builds on existing infrastructure and services supported by the European Commission, Member States and research communities. It brings these together in a federated ‘system of systems’ approach, adding value by aggregating content and enabling services to be used together.

This environment will operate under well-defined conditions to ensure trust and safeguard the public interest. Expectations of service providers and users will be made explicit to ensure appropriate behaviour.

EOSC is supported by the European Commission as part of the Horizon 2020 call for projects. I take part in several of them.
