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

ExPaNDS (EOSC Photon and Neutron Data Services)

Project Coordinated by DESY

The EOSC Photon and Neutron Data Service (ExPaNDS) will create opportunities for the scientific community and through their findings for humankind across the globe. This will be achieved through the collaboration and federation of 10 national Photon and Neutron Research Infrastructures (RIs) from across Europe and is based upon the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) services.

EGI Foundation Role:

 EGI will provide technical support and tools to integrate ExPaNDS service and data providers into the EOSC

Expected Results:

 Integrate the ExPaNDS services in EOSC

Relevance for EGI:

The main input of EGI Foundation in the project relates to EOSC data catalogue services for Photon and Neutron national RIs, EOSC data analysis services for Photon and Neutron national RIs, training activities through EOSC platforms.
