2-day webinar: National infrastructures in EOSC

  • By Athina Papadopoulou

On 11-12 October, we are organising two online workshops focused on presenting the collaboration of eInfrastructures at the EU level.

On Day 1, from 10.00 to 13.00 CEST, we will address how eInfras collaborate to jointly build and operate components of the EOSC Core and facilitate the EOSC Exchange (i.e., onboarding of services and data from communities, whether thematic or institutional). The goal is to engage national members, present what is happening at the EU level, and learn how they propagate, extend and execute such collaborations at the national level. 

On 12 October, from 10.00 to 15.00 CEST, the second online workshop will focus on presenting the collaboration of eInfrastructures at the EU level in the framework of EOSC Future to jointly reach out to the various communities and how they jointly build mechanisms and tools to support them.

27 September - BioDT use cases: unique demonstrators to test the biodiversity Digital Twin prototype

  • By Federico Drago

The BioDT project aims to develop the biodiversity BioDT prototype to help better predict global biodiversity dynamics and how species interact with their environment and with each other.
In order to test the work the project team is bringing forward, the BioDT team will develop over the course of three years, groups of use cases that showcase how BioDT can examine its predictive performance and address biodiversity challenges through scenario simulations, predictions and biomonitoring methods.

The four use cases groups that BioDT is developing focus on:  

  • Species response to environmental change, which puts attention on biodiversity dynamics and ecosystems services;
  • Genetically detected biodiversity, that aims to bring research forward for crop wild relatives and genetic resources for food security and DNA detected biodiversity, poorly known habitats;
  • Dynamics and threats from and for species of policy concern, that explores invasive species and endangered species;
  • Species interactions with each other and with humans, that studies disease outbreaks and pollinators.

FAIR-IMPACT and FAIRCORE4EOSC collaboration explained in two brand new videos!

  • By Federico Drago

Project and Technical coordinators showcase a FAIR Collaboration for Open Science in Europe.

This June 2022, two European Horizon projects kicked off in Amsterdam, FAIRCORE4EOSC and FAIR-IMPACT. Both projects will contribute to the implementation of the FAIR principles across the European Open Science Cloud in close collaboration with other actors in the EOSC ecosystem.  We interviewed both project and technical coordinators about the envisaged collaboration, watch the videos now!

Contributing to the web of FAIR data and services

In 2015 the vision of a European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) emerged. EOSC would provide an open and trusted environment for accessing and managing a wide range of publicly funded research data and related services, helping researchers reap the full benefits of data-driven science. EOSC is currently in its implementation phase (2021-2027) which requires active engagement and support to ensure widespread implementation and adoption of the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable,...

ESCAPE to the future

  • By Luigi Colucci

ESCAPE (European Science Cluster of Astronomy & Particle physics ESFRI research infrastructures) is an H2020 project and one of the five ESFRis cluster that aims to produce versatile solutions to support the implementation of EOS, encourage cross-fertilisation and foster joint multiwavelength/multi-messenger capabilities in the astronomy, astrophysics and particle astrophysics communities.

The project brings together a cluster with ESFRIs projects with aligned challenges of data-driven research, with demonstrated capabilities in addressing various stages of data workflow and concerned with fundamental research through complementary approaches.

To support the EOSC implementation, ESCAPE has created the “EOSC Cell”, a cross-border and multidisciplinary environment to enable the EOSC community to adopt the services, e-infrastructures, and data stewardship of ESFRI projects.

Why is EOSC relevant to researchers?! Check out our communication material!

  • By Marie Czuray

Dear colleagues,

We hope that you are well and enjoy the beautiful sides of summer - or at least looking forward to enjoying them soon! 

We are wondering...

Would you like to support your network and institution to get involved with the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and show them how they can benefit from it?

For you and everyone else interested in Open Science, we offer an information package to raise awareness about EOSC. On our website you can find more information and download promotional material such as flyers, PowerPoint templates, posters, etc. You can also find the link to our new podcast "Stories of Data: Open.Science.Talk“ there:


Our goal is to make the vision and concepts of EOSC tangible and explain it’s practical benefits for researchers. 

If you like our materials and the podcast, please share it within your network so people understand what EOSC is all about! 

When you have shared it, please let us know...

  • How useful is the material to you? How do you adapt it?  
  • How do you promote it

Third TRIPLE ThatCamp on Sustainability in Open Science 13th September, Zadar - Croatia

  • By Tiziana Lombardo

Sustainability is easily one of the most pressing matters and most discussed topics of our time. This is as true for the economy and society as it is for research and thereby for Open Science. At the third TRIPLE ThatCamp we want to discuss and brainstorm on the relationship between sustainability and Open Science with you. If you are a researcher, a librarian, an interested citizen or someone otherwise involved or interested in sustainability in Open Science you are welcome to join us at this event.

Topics of discussion could be:

  • How can the long-term quality of data be secured?
  • What governance/business models are sustainable for Open Science?
  • How do tools and services that have been developed within the life span of Open Science projects live on after?
  • Do training sessions provide sustainability?
  • How can we ensure and support sustainability via scholarly communication?
  • Any other topic that crosses your mind!

The Biodiversity Digital Twin: a new solution to support protection and restoration of ecosystems - Webinar on 13 July 10:00 CEST

  • By Rita Giuffrida


Understanding the forces shaping biodiversity is needed for rational management of natural resources and also to meet the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 to restore biodiversity in Europe. In particular, researchers need to be able to better predict global biodiversity dynamics and how species interact with their environment and with each other. This can be an extremely difficult task because the processes underlying biodiversity dynamics are complex. Innovative ways to combine data, models and interaction processes are required to predict these dynamics and offer solutions that promote a sustainable management of Earth’s biodiversity and its ecosystems.

In this context, the BioDT project aims to bring together a dynamic team of experts in biodiversity, High-Performance Computing, Artificial Intelligence, digital twinning and FAIR data to develop this Biodiversity Digital Twin prototype. This is going to be achieved through a cooperation between 22 partners that aim to push the current boundaries of...
