What is EOSC-Life?
In the simplest terms, EOSC-Life is:
- 13 European life science Research Infrastructures
- making their data FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable)
- so that researchers can combine resources from multiple RIs for new research funded through our Open Calls
- and receive support through the variety of additional services we offer, including alignment with relevant standards and policies (GDPR, etc.)
According to the European Commission, “the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is an environment for hosting and processing research data to support EU science.”
EOSC-Life co-creates and integrates the EOSC federated core, while simultaneously creating, adapting and adopting policies for Open Science.
Activities of EOSC-Life will also establish the EOSC as an open, collaborative space for digital biology in Europe by offering a metadata repository, workflows and tools, and cloud computing.
