Data spaces and processing tools for EOSC

Leveraging the EOSC Compute Platform, EGI-ACE is setting up a thriving collection of thematic services in EOSC (data spaces and processing tools). The services are built by scientific communities, research infrastructures and projects by integrating scientific datasets and applications with the EOSC Compute platform. The project consortium includes 13 Data Spaces and Processing Tools from Health and Medicine, Climate Research, Energy and Physical Sciences, Environmental Sciences, and Social Sciences and Humanities.

The project supports the setup of additional thematic services via its user engagement programme. The services are registered in EOSC Portal and are open for any researcher to perform scalable scientific data analysis. The services facilitate research and development activities, reduce development time for digital science, and contribute to the cross-fertilisation of knowledge across disciplines.

Providing a service to generate science-ready LOFAR data, enabling discoveries in astronomy to happen faster and more easily

Social sciences and humanities

The OPERAS Metrics service provides an Open Source tool able to collect usage and alternative metrics for Open Access publications

Value for Scientific Communities

  • Streamlined support and communication through the use case shepherds and with access to experts for consultancy to select the most suitable types and combination of compute and related platform/data services to realise a use case.
  • Build partnership with national providers for long-term usage of their compute resources.
  • Free-at-point-of-use access to national and relevant international capacity.
  • Increase user base and reusability of their services
  • Development of sustainability plans for operation beyond the lifetime of the project

Value for EOSC

  • Contribution to the EOSC Data Commons through the setup and provisioning of ‘Data Spaces’
  • Contributions to multiple EOSC strategic objectives as defined by the PPP/SRIA.
  • Development of guidelines and best practice approaches on how to set up and operate data spaces.
