EOSC-Synergy will contribute to the European Open Science Cloud landscape by expanding the resource capabilities and building human capacities to use EOSC. In practice this will mean more compute and storage available to researchers, and more datasets and tools to expand avenues of research.
EGI Foundation Role in the Project:
In addition to the support provided with the provision of EGI services (computing, storage, Check-in) for the thematic services, EGI leads the communication and dissemination activities, the landscaping analysis, and the national and international liaisons with a relevant role in innovation management and exploitation.
- COVID VO-Cloud Computing Service based on Galaxy to support researchers on COVID-19
- First prototype of 9 thematic services with EGI services (compute, storage, check-in)
- National landscape analysis and recommendations
Relevance for EGI:
The support to the COVID VO represents the successful response from EGI to the COVID research community. The technical support to the thematic services with the EGI services contributes to the main mission of EGI, to provide solutions for advanced computing and data analytics to the research community and at the same time contributes to the adoption of EOSC services into research communities at national level (capacity building). The contribution to the landscape analysis and recommendations will provide the overview of gaps on the different national roadmaps. EGI is a key partner to provide harmonisation
recommendations for the EOSC implementation.
