EOSC Future integrates, consolidates, and connects e-infrastructures, research communities, and initiatives in EOSC to develop the EOSC-Core and EOSC-Exchange. EOSC Future will expand the EOSC ecosystem, integrate existing but disparate initiatives, and hand over key project outputs to the EOSC Association. EOSC Future will unlock the potential of European research through a vision of Open Science for Society. EOSC Future will reduce the current research fragmentation of disciplinary and national silos, as well as promote Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable (FAIR) data, professionally provided services, and open research products.
EGI Foundation Role in the Project
EGI will contribute to the design, operation and interoperability of EOSC Core services, to running the EOSC Digital Innovation Hub, as well as to resource strategy and the processes for onboarding new groups to EOSC. EGI Foundation is responsible for requirements collection and analysis for both the EOSC Back Office and Front Office. It also leads all operational aspects of the EOSC Portal. Finally, EGI plays a leading role in developing the EOSC SMS.
