Providing an open collaborative space for digital biology in Europe

Funding programme: Horizon 2020 (N 824087)

Budget: €23.7M

Coordinator: ELIXIR Hub

Duration: 4 years (Mar 2019 - Feb 2023)

EOSC-Life brings together the 13 Biological and Medical ESFRI research infrastructures (BMS RIs) to create an open collaborative space for digital biology. By publishing data and tools in a Europe-wide cloud EOSC-Life aims to bring the capabilities of big science projects to the wider research community.

Federated user access (AAI) will allow transnational resource access and authorisation. EOSC-Life establishes a novel access model for the BMS RI: through EOSC scientists would gain direct access to FAIR data and tools in a cloud environment available throughout the European Research Area.

ECRIN's role in EOSC-Life

In EOSC-Life, ECRIN is co-leading “WP4 Policies, specifications and tools for secure management of sensitive data for research purposes” that is addressing policies and guidelines for sensitive data storage, processing, sharing and reuse for research purposes. ECRIN is also co-leading “WP14 Design, development, implementation and use of a repository for individual participant data from COVID-19 trials” and “WP10 Dissemination and Outreach”.
