Get in touch with EOSC-Life

    What is EOSC-Life?

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

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

    The project ensures that this space is 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 makes data resources from LS RIs ‘FAIR’ and publishes them in the EOSC by following guidelines and standards. Overall, this drives the evolution of the RI repository infrastructure for EOSC and integration of the LS RI repositories.

    EOSC-Life is also implementing workflows that cross disciplines and addressing the needs of interdisciplinary science. Through open hackathons and bring-your-own-data events, EOSC-Life is being co-created with our user communities. This provides a blueprint that illustrates how the EOSC supports widespread and excellent data-driven life science research.

    EOSC-Life is addressing the data policies needed for human research data under the GDPR. Interoperable provenance information is provided that describes the history of samples and data to ensure reproducibility and adherence to regulatory requirements.

    Instruct works towards data integration to ensure #FAIRdata through our work with the @eoscassociation
    In particular with projects @EOSC_synergy @EOSCFuture @EoscLife

    From our discussions @FragmentScreen meeting, clear pilot cases with researchers data obtained at research infrastructures kept at EOSC can be crucial to ensure #FAIRdata
    Let's make it happen!
