Integrating and managing services for the European Open Science Cloud

Funding programme: Horizon 2020 (N 777536)

Coordinator: STICHTING EGI (EGI Foundation)

Budget: €33M

Duration: 36 months (January 2018 to January2021)

EOSC-hub brings together multiple service providers to create the Hub: a single contact point for European researchers and innovators to discover, access, use and reuse a broad spectrum of resources for advanced data-driven research.

For researchers, this will mean broader access to services supporting their scientific discovery and collaboration across disciplinary and geographical boundaries.

The project mobilises providers from the EGI Federation, EUDAT CDI, INDIGO-DataCloud and other major European research infrastructures to deliver a common catalogue of research data, services and software for research. 

EOSC-hub collaborates closely with eInfraCentral, EOSCpilot, GÉANT 4.2, OpenAIRE-Advance and the RDA Europe 4.0 projects to deliver a consistent service offer for research communities across Europe.

The generous EU funding received by the project is complemented with a contribution from the EGI Foundation and its participants, and in-kind contributions made available by service providers of the EGI Federation.

ECRIN is involved in formulating policies to facilitate the sharing and safe processing of both open and “restricted” data from across European research infrastructures, and promoting current models of good practice on the management of restricted data from around the EOSC-hub consortium.
