EOSCpilot's 9 Recommendations for EOSC Policy

Nine high-level policy recommendations were recognised, embodied in implementing actions that are primarily aimed at the EOSC-governing bodies, organisations that fund research, and research infrastructures across Europe. Along with the actions, steps to-be-taken are provided. All the different elements of the report emphasize the importance of an inclusive and transparent debate: stakeholder views and recommendations should be incorporated throughout the policy drafting, adoption and implementation of the EOSC.

EOSC Post-2020 Governance Structure Proposed by EOSCpilot

As part of its pioneering work for the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), the EOSCpilot project has proposed a post-2020 governance structure to succeed the current interim governance structure in place.

The objective of EOSCpilot's Governance Work Package (WP2) was to design and trial a stakeholder-driven governance framework with the involvement of research communities, research institutions, research infrastructures including e-infrastructures, and research funding bodies.

Visual Media Service - Back again and extended

Visual representations are of paramount importance for Cultural Heritage (CH) research; these data, however, are complex to manage and disseminate over the web, especially in the context of the humanities science domain.

The aim of the Visual Media Service is to provide CH researchers with an automatic system to publish, visualize and analyze images and 3D models in a shared workspace on the web, thus allowing sharing, interoperability and reuse of visual data.

OCRE brings commercial cloud and earth observation players to the European Open Science Cloud

The Open Clouds for Research Environments project (OCRE), aims to accelerate cloud adoption in the European research community, by bringing together cloud providers, Earth Observation (EO) organisations and the research and education community, through ready-to-use service agreements and €9.5 million in adoption funding.

Cloud-based services offer the European research community a wealth of powerful tools, but for many researchers, these are currently out of reach, with suitable services difficult to find and select.
