Description of the session
The EOSC implementation roadmap, defined by the Commission Staff Working Document published in March 2018, envisages that EOSC will offer a range of access enabling services including “horizontal services such as a portal, authentication and authorisation and security services” and research enabling services including “computing, data and services of pan-European and disciplinary research data infrastructures, which already federate data infrastructures at the European level”.
This workshop gives the opportunity to prospective consumers and providers - from both the public and commercial sectors - to discuss needs and opportunities that should drive the definition of the EOSC service portfolio roadmap:
- What prospective needs and priorities do scientific communities have as consumers of the EOSC?
- How should EOSC facilitate the sharing of data, scientific outputs and services across national and organisational borders?
The workshop will start with a presentation of today’s state of play in federating resources and services to enable multi-disciplinary science and transnational access; it will feature invited talks from representatives of digital infrastructures, research projects and communities and the long-tail of science. The workshop will also involve representatives from both public and commercial organisations in their role as a service provider and service consumer. The workshop participants will have the opportunity to define a list of recommendations giving direction to the development and provisioning of the EOSC portfolio.
