Get in touch with EOSC-Life

What is EOSC-Life?

EOSC-Life brings together the 13 Biological and Medical ‘ESFRI’ research infrastructures (BMS RIs) to create an open, digital and collaborative space for biological and medical research.

The project will publish ‘FAIR’ data and a catalogue of services provided by participating RIs for the management, storage and reuse of data in the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

This space will be accessible to European research communities.

How EOSC-Life works: RIs upload data that can be used by researchers for new projects

Our Mission

EOSC-Life will make data resources from BMS RIs ‘FAIR’ and publish them in the EOSC following guidelines and standards. Overall, this will drive the evolution of the RI repository infrastructure for EOSC and integration of the BMS RI repositories.

EOSC-Life will implement workflows that cross disciplines and address the needs of interdisciplinary science. Through open hackathons and bring-your-own-data events we will co-create EOSC-Life with our user communities, providing a blueprint for how the EOSC supports wide-spread and excellent data-driven life science research.

EOSC-Life will address the data policies needed for human research data under GDPR. Interoperable provenance information will describe the history of the sample and data to ensure reproducibility and adherence to regulatory requirements.

EOSC-Life brings together the 13 research infrastructures in the Health and Food domain of the ESFRI Roadmap

1 March 2019 – 28 February 2023,
48 Months

46 Partners, 11 Work Packages

€23.7 Million,
34 Deliverables

The goal of the EOSC-Life project is to ensure that life scientists can find, access and integrate life-science data for analysis and reuse in academic and industrial research. EOSC-Life will transform European life science by providing an open, pan-European, collaborative and interdisciplinary environment for data science.

Our Open Calls will do just that - @EoscLife wants researchers to take advantage of resources from across disciplines from our 13 RIs to address issues in life sciences today. Check out this #TEDx talk from one of our partner RIs!

BBMRI-ERIC is hiring! We are looking for an #ELSI Services Officer based in #Austria to support our ELSI team on ethical, legal and societal issues in #biobanking and biomolecular resources. Deadline Oct 31st, start of work expected Dec 1st. Please share!

#EOSC Cluster projects & the @resdatall community come together for a @SSHOpenCloud event at the 14th #RDAPlenary. We will discuss commonalities & potential collaborations on community #Research #datamanagement solutions & in #EOSC. Register & join us:

EOSC-Life is our joint response to the challenge of analysing and reusing the prodigious amounts of data produced by the life sciences by harmonising data and making it findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR). 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.
