Academics edge closer to dream of research on cloud platforms | Financial Times

“In the race to harness the power of cloud computing, and further develop artificial intelligence, academics have a new concern: falling behind a fast-moving tech industry. In the US, 22 higher education institutions, including Stanford and Carnegie Mellon, have signed up to a National Research Cloud initiative seeking access to the computational power they need to keep up. It is one of several cloud projects being called for by academics globally, and is being explored by the US Congress, given the potential of the technology to deliver breakthroughs in healthcare and climate change….”

 

EOSC Portal user survey | EOSC Portal

“The EOSC Portal is a gateway to information and resources in EOSC, providing updates on its governance and players, the projects contributing to its development and implementation, key events for the EOSC community, as well as training materials for its different components. 

The EOSC Portal Catalogue & Marketplace acts as a user-friendly entry point to the multitude of services and resources for researchers across different domains, provided by leading European and international organisations.

The Horizon 2020 project EOSC Enhance is launching an open survey targeting the entire EOSC community, to look more closely at individuals who create EOSC, understand who they are, where they come from and, most importantly, what they need in their everyday (research) activities. With this portion of knowledge, with the feedback gathered in this survey, the project wishes to capture most needed and expected enhancements that can be introduced in the next Portal release in autumn 2021. …”

National Initiatives for Open Science in Europe | NI4OS-Europe – YouTube

“Technological advancements have changed rapidly the way Scientific Research is performed. Modern electronic Infrastructures and digital services have enabled the transition from traditional to high-performance Research, paving the way towards scientific Innovation, to the benefit of the citizens worldwide. Still, knowledge exchange and digital service and data availability beyond geographical borders and scientific domains remains limited, preventing global Research from producing maximum outputs.

?he European Commission tackles these barriers by leading the activities for the creation of the European Open Science Cloud. EOSC is a trusted, integrated virtual environment that provides seamless access to data and interoperable services, enabling millions of scientists to access, store, manage, analyze, share and reuse research data, across borders and scientific disciplines. In this effort, NI4OS-Europe project is a key contributor: it provides integrated solutions to support the EOSC Governance, contribute to its portfolio of services and engage the regional research communities, enabling innovation and inclusiveness in Science. The NI4OS-Europe project is funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Grant Agreement no. 857645….”

openaire-nexus-project

“OpenAIRE-Nexus brings in Europe, EOSC and the world a set of services to implement and accelerate Open Science. To embed in researchers workflows, making it easier for them to accept and uptake Open Science practices of openness and FAIRness. To give the tools to libraries, research communities to make their content more visible and discoverable. To assist policy makers to better understand the environment and ramifications of Open Science into new incentives, scientific reward criteria, impact indicators, so as to increase research and innovation potential. To foster innovation, by providing SMEs with open data about scientific production. To this aim, OpenAIRE-Nexus onboards to the EOSC fourteen services, provided by public institutions, einfrastructures, and companies, structured in three portfolios: PUBLISH, MONITOR and DISCOVER. The services are widely used in Europe and beyond and integrated in OpenAIRE-Nexus to assemble a uniform Open Science Scholarly Communication package for the EOSC. The project aims at forming synergies with other INFRAEOSC-07 awarded projects, the INFRAEOSC-03 project, research infrastructures, einfrastructures, and scholarly communication services define a common Open Science interoperability framework for the EOSC, to facilitate sharing, monitoring, and discovery of EOSC resources across disciplines….”

Research Libraries, Researchers & the EOSC: Central/Eastern European Landscape – Scientific Knowledge Services

“A highly participative workshop format, with only 3 short presentations and generous time for a creative discussions session.  Make your participation remarkable!

 

Research libraries have been championing Open Access and Open Science both within and beyond our institutions. We have demonstrated strong leadership in Open Science as policy-makers on the one hand and sound management when implementing plans to realise that policy on the other. Research libraries have been the key holders of data for a long time and play a key role in connecting end-users/researchers to Open Science and the EOSC. Also research libraries develop and maintain services that users rely upon and that need to be integrated into the EOSC. Libraries can, therefore, help develop the requirements for the inclusion of services and data into the EOSC. The strong experience in advocating for Open Science for many years can help to advocate for the EOSC in the research community….”

EOSC SYNERGY SURVEY ON DATATHON TOOLS

“This survey to landscape datathon tools falls under the framework of the EC-funded EOSC SYNERGY Project https://www.eosc-synergy.eu/

EOSC SYNERGY kicked off in 2019 with the aim to expand the capacity and capabilities of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) by leveraging the experience, effort and resources of national publicly-funded digital infrastructures in Britain, Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Slovakia and the Netherlands.

One package of the Project is exploring the variety of software that support training and manipulation of research datasets. In particular, with this survey our intention is to learn more about existing tools that support the organization of datathon events….”
