EOSCpilot

The European Open Science Cloud for Research Pilot Project
The European Open Science Cloud will offer 1.7 million European researchers and 70 million professionals in science and technology a virtual environment with open and seamless services for storage, management, analysis and re-use of research data, across borders and scientific disciplines by federating existing scientific data infrastructures, today scattered across disciplines and Member States. 
 
The EOSCpilot project has been funded to support the first phase in the development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). It will:     
  • Propose and trial governance frameworks for the EOSC and contribute to the development of European open science policy and best practice;    
  • Develop a number of demonstrators functioning as high-profile pilots that integrate services and infrastructures to show interoperability and its benefits in a number of scientific domains; and    
  • Engage with a broad range of stakeholders, crossing borders and communities, to build the trust and skills required for adoption of an open approach to scientific research.
