Photon and neutron scientific data openly available to academics
Large-scale research infrastructures produce massive amounts of scientific data on a daily basis. This poses storage and (re)usability challenges, which are best addressed by the ‘FAIR’ paradigm: findable, accessible, interoperable and re-usable. Recognising the importance of fostering open science and open innovation, the EC supported the idea of a European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) that took shape in 2015. EOSC now includes a catalogue of services for the storage, management, analysis and reuse of research data. The ambitious aim of the EU-funded ExPaNDS project is to enable photon and neutron research infrastructures at national levels by making the majority of their data ‘open’, following FAIR principles, and harmonising their data catalogues and data analysis services through the EOSC.
