The EOSC-hub project creates the integration and management system of the future European Open Science Cloud that delivers a catalogue of services, software and data from the EGI Federation, EUDAT CDI, INDIGO-DataCloud and major research e-infrastructures. This integration and management system (the Hub) builds on mature processes, policies and tools from the leading European federated e-Infrastructures to cover the whole life-cycle of services, from planning to delivery.
FREYA was a 3-year project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme. The project started in december 2017 and ended in december 2020. It aimed to build the infrastructure for persistent identifiers as a core component of open science, in the EU and globally. FREYA worked to improve discovery, navigation, retrieval, and access of research resources. New provenance services enabled researchers to better evaluate data and make the scientific record more complete, reliable, and traceable.
Below we list the efforts made by SSHOC, EOSC-hub and FREYA projects so far to create synergies and the results obtained.
Realising the European Open Science Cloud virtual conference was organised during November 2020. The event invited participants to join forces and connect with E-infrastructures, discover new tools and techniques and aggregate services to the EOSC Portal.
The conference attracted some 700 visitors from 45 countries and offered more than 30 plenary and small group breakout sessions over four days. There were also virtual exhibition booths and plenty of opportunities to network.
