Integration and consolidation of the existing pan-European access mechanism to public research infrastructures and commercial services through the EOSC Portal

 

Building on the outcomes of the projects awarded under topics EINFRA-12-2017[[http://www.eosc-hub.eu/, https://www.openaire.eu/, and https://eosc-portal.eu/]], INFRAEOSC-06-2019 (a), INFRAEOSC-05-2018 (a), INFRAEOSC-04-2018 and other relevant EU funded projects and initiatives[[In particular, those mentioned in the Implementation Roadmap of the EOSC Commission Staff Working Document, SWD(2018) 83 final.]] (including the thematic clouds), proposals should address the following activities all together:

a. Operation, maintenance and enhancement of the EOSC Portal (the website, the catalogue of services and the marketplace)

  • Enhance operational aspects of the EOSC Portal: proposals should include tools and activities to ensure the basic functionalities underpinning the portal, such as the support, quality, security, reliability and traceability of services, effective moni

    The phase of integration and consolidation of e-infrastructure platforms initiated under the Research Infrastructures Work Programme 2016-2017 (in particular, through the EOSC-hub) as well as the work carried out by other EU funded projects and initiatives[[In particular, those mentioned in the SWD for the Implementation Roadmap of the EOSC Commission Staff Working Document, SWD(2018) 83 final.]], has set the ground for the development of the EOSC Portal. Through its main components, the EOSC website, catalogue of services and marketplace[[The EOSC marketplace is conceived as a platform integrated into the EOSC Portal where users are able to access, order and compose different services and resources: https://marketplace.eosc-portal.eu/]], researchers and other users can find and use research-enabling services and resources, get technical support, integrated solutions from the EOSC providers, participate in co-design,

    • Provide pan-European access to state-of-the-art secure, interoperable and scalable EOSC services and resources enabling the emergence of genuine Open Science, enhancing data skills and boosting data intensive research in Europe.
    • Enable researchers and other users to compose secure and scalable services that respond to actual and evolving needs, in a secure, flexible and scalable environment.
    • Build an agile EOSC and increase the uptake of its services by public and private sectors stakeholders, across Europe, exploiting solutions and technologies for the benefit of all areas of economy and society.
    • Reduce the burden for research organisations and other service users to engage in complex procurement processes, support cross-analysis of data from heterogeneous sources and create market opportunities for innovative research data services.
    • Increase the overall value of open research data and ensure that EOSC contributes to the global playing field of open FAIR da
