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.

REMINDER! Apply by 18 Jan for the 3rd cohort of @openlifesci - especially for @EoscLife members!

This cohort's theme is #FAIRdata

After the success of the first @ELIXIREurope and #UseGalaxy webinar series on #COVIDー19, we come back next Wednesday with 6 new topics, @nekrut and @mariusvdbeek will introduce the series and talk about the lessons learned. Don't forget to register!

Just two weeks to go until the #OpenCall for integrating thematic digital research service providers closes! Don't miss your opportunity to join @EoscPillar as an #OpenScience use case and receive @EoscPortal onboarding support. Apply now! #EOSC

Great news! @CellProfiler is now available on Galaxy☁️for image data analysis! Training material is available too.

Excellent talk from Sara Zullino, University of Torino, part of @EuroBioImaging, at today’s Populating @EOSCLife webinar. Her team worked to share and reuse large, multi-modal imaging datasets among #preclinical facilities. All developments are #openaccess and #free.

Today we are learning about the progress of some of the successful Demonstrator projects for @EoscLife.

Look out for more details on each of the projects soon!
