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.

📢Subscribe today to our bi-monthly newsletter! You'll receive project updates, events, open calls, useful training information, relevant job vacancies, and more. Connect with the life science community in Europe: ➡️

10 DAYS! Call for #datacurator #developer #dataarchitect. Fill in survey on #Datasemantics & #Datainteroperability.Let us know what kind of formats, identifiers & #software you work with, to make #Research FAIR & support #FAIRdata development

Have your say on the @EOSC_eu proposal for the #EOSC technical architecture - feedback is welcome until the end of September!

Day 2 #EOSC consultation in Brussels- OpenAIRE is supporting #EOSC helping to faciliate #openscience at national levels with its wide network

Looking forward to work with all the other #EOSC related projects especially on shared values!

Less than a week until the #MipTec exhibition at #BASELLIFE2019. Visit @instructhub and @EuOpenscreen at booth C07 to find out how you can access technology, training and expertise for #lifescience research in #industry and #academia.

On behalf of @Fair4Health and @EJPRareDiseases joining the @EoscLife Brussels meeting, with many #FAIR projects in the room, including @FAIRsFAIR_EU @FAIRplus_eu, and infrastructures such as @Health__RI, @ELIXIREurope, @EatrisEric, and @BBMRIERIC. Forgot some? Please chip in😄!

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.
