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.

Webinar series on socio-economic impact of RIs
“A European framework for socio-economic impact of research infrastructures: A way forward”

Super pre-print by @JohanD13016359 and his team featuring important interdisciplinary work supported by the @CORBEL_eu project. The beautiful imaging data was obtained at the Euro-BioImaging @embl Node in collaboration with @SchwabYannick. Congratulations to all!👏

"Why are you here? Why should I care if you exist or not in a year from now?"

These are the questions @eliasen_bogi urged the #LSRIs to consider during yesterday's webinar.

What about you? Are you contemplating your answer?
