About the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC):
The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is a pioneering initiative that aims to create an inclusive and open space for the exchange and use of research data in Europe. The aim of the EOSC is to create a ‘Web of FAIR Data and Services’ for science in Europe.
EOSC will be a multidisciplinary socio-technological infrastructure where researchers can publish, find and reuse data, tools and services to better perform their work.
EOSC builds on existing infrastructures and services supported by the European Commission, Member States and research communities. It brings these together in a federated “system of systems” and creates added value by pooling content and enabling the sharing of services.
EOSC will improve the situation for researchers in many ways, namely by:
- Improving scientific research by providing access to a wealth of data and research results from different fields and institutions.
- Promoting innovation by facilitating exchange, collaboration and building on the work of other researchers.
- Improving transparency and reproducibility of research by making data and methods more open and accessible.
- Reducing data silos and duplication of effort by promoting data sharing and reuse.
- Facilitating interdisciplinary research and cross-sector collaboration by making data and resources from different fields more accessible.
