Description

EOSC-hub is a 33 million Euro H2020 project that started in January 2018 with the involvement of 100 partners from 53 countries, including 19 research communities. EOSC-hub will last for three years and has a goal to establish the fundamentals of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC): the infrastructure to accelerate and support the current transition to a more effective Open Science and Open Innovation in the Digital Single Market. This poster introduces EOSC-hub, a project which will define, create and operate the integration and management system of the EOSC: the Hub. The Hub aggregates services from local, regional and national e-Infrastructures in Europe and worldwide and will act as a contact point for researchers and innovators to discover, access, use and reuse a broad spectrum of resources for advanced data-driven research. The Hub already builds on mature processes, policies and tools from the leading European e-infrastructures to cover the whole life-cycle of services from planning to delivery. Through this management system - services, software and data will be delivered towards researchers via a single service Marketplace. The services will include services in four broad areas: Common, Thematic, Collaborative and Federation. The EOSC-hub consortium already includes providers from 3 e-infrastructure communities (EGI, EUDAT, INDIGO-DataCloud), and from 18 Research Infrastructures (mostly from the ESFRI Roadmap). EOSC-hub collaborates closely with GÉANT and the EOSCpilot and OpenAIRE-Advance projects to deliver a consistent service offer for research communities across Europe. The group of service providers is expected to radically grow in the next years. The project will also improve skill and knowledge among researchers and service operators by delivering specialised trainings and by establishing ‘competence centres’ where existing services can be tested, new services can be co-created with the involvement of scientific user communities. In the area of engagement with the private sector the project will run a ‘Digital Innovation Hub’ to stimulate an ecosystem of industry/ SMEs, service providers and researchers in the form of ‘business pilots’ that aim to produce services for commercial markets.
