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 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 LS 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 LS 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.

components) into Galaxy (key cloud workflow tool).


@Drosophilic said "I love this diagram with both Data Stewards and Data Curators. I really appreciate that these important roles are now getting recognition."... I totally agree! #EOSCSymposium2020 @EoscSecretariat @EoscLife @OpenAIRE_eu @ERINHA_RI

Trained personnel is a basic requirement for an operations European Open Science Cloud. Who needs to be trained and what do we need to be train on is being discussed now at #EOSCSymposium2020

Spotlight on the @EoscLife Demonstrators:
