Access control

Accessibility of data

Universities and other research-performing organisations in the public sector must be provided preferential and easy access to EOSC as these user groups will be the biggest suppliers of data. Universities and other public research-performing organisations also primarily serve society and do not generate commercial revenue from their activities in most cases.

Data Security

Data that will be distributed via the EOSC will have different levels of access control depending on Intellectual Property (IP) issues, embargoes prior to publication and personal data protection considerations. In addition, certain types of research may have National Security implications that require additional levels of access control. The only model viable in such an environment is one whereby data security, or more accurately, access control remains with the entity that is ultimately legally responsible for ensuring that the data is properly restricted.
