Organiser session: The EOSC-hub service portfolio and applicable policies for service providers and users
- Isabel Campos (CSIC)
TITLE: The EOSC-hub service portfolio and applicable policies for service providers and users
The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is taking shape by federating generic and thematic services into a single integrated service portfolio. Since its start in January EOSC-hub succeeded in creating: (1) a EOSC service portfolio management which defines through processes and policies which services and resources can be admitted to be part of the portfolio, and (2) different approaches for integrated services and resources into the overall service management system of EOSC.
During this session we will present the EOSC-hub service catalogue, its delivery channel - the EOSC-hub marketplace, and the rules of participation for becoming a service provider of the Hub. The hub is a meeting point for the demand and the offer, where the communities can have a double role: as service providers, they aim to improve the quality of their services and increase the number of users; as service consumers, they are searching for tools which can suit best their needs, taking into account economical, legal and technical constraints.
Agenda and purpose of the session:
1) General presentation of EOSC-hub: current status of the services and plans for adding further providers from the consortium. A description of the EOSC-Portal is also planned.
2) Guide to EOSC-Hub for users and providers. Walk through the new engagement description and procedures.
3) Thematic Services integration: major achievements/ blocking factors/ technology gaps/ added value. Panel discussion with our experts and the audience.
The feedback from the participants to the session will help us to draw a more detailed picture of the European Open Science Cloud, evolve it and offer concrete opportunities for participation.
