Description

eInfraCentral (EIC) is a coordination and support action funded from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. Its mission is to ensure that by 2020 a broader and more varied set of users discovers and accesses the existing and developing e-infrastructure capacity. The underlying idea is to create a marketplace. The project has three-fold objections. First, to structure an open and guided discussion between e-infrastructures to consensually define a common service catalogue. Second, to develop a one stop shop/single-entry point portal for users to browse the service catalogue and enhance the monitoring of key performance indicators that focus on availability and quality of services and user satisfaction. Third, to draw policy lessons for a future European e-infrastructure market place as an extension of the common service catalogue and portal (incorporating a larger number of e-infrastructures) The poster to be presented during the DI4R is targeted at three audiences: the e-infrastructure services providers (pan-European, regional and national, monothematic or poly-thematic, uni-disciplinary or multi-disciplinary, etc.), b) virtual research environments (VREs), and c) potential users of the e-infrastructure services. The poster aims to answers to some potential questions from the users: “How eInfraCentral project will respond to the need of the European researchers on digital services?” “What are we developing in the context of the European Open Science?” “What will be offered?”
