The EOSCpilot project has recently passed its mid-term review in Brussels, receiving positive feedback from the panel of experts. One of the key activities of the project was the support of science demonstrators that act as early adopters of ‘to-be EOSC’ services. By the end of the first project year, 15 science demonstrators have been selected from diverse scientific domains. Each received advice on available services and was provided with technical support and training to integrate scientific applications with services that fit their purpose. The demonstrators provided feedback to the project and promoted their work to various audiences beyond the consortium.
During this period, the EGI Foundation and several members of the EGI federation were involved in the selection and support of science demonstrators. Liaison and involvement of service and technology providers happened both within Europe and overseas, for example with Compute Canada.
