EOSC Future Call for Evaluators

  • By Luigi Colucci

After its official kick-off last week, EOSC Future is going into high gear with the launch of a call for external evaluators by the Research Data Alliance (RDA). This call is seeking experts to evaluate a series of diverse grants to be awarded over the course of the EOSC Future project. Though the call will remain open for submissions until June 2023,  experts will be called on to evaluate grant applications as soon as October 2021.

Over the next two and a half years, the EOSC Future project will develop an environment with professional data services, open research products and infrastructure. It looks to create a so-called ‘system of systems’ that will support European researchers in managing the entirely lifecycle of data: from sharing, managing and exploiting their own data to discovering, re-using and recombining the data sets of others. The project will engage, train and support...

“Scientists and institutions should take the responsibilities to support and increase people’s understanding of research and science”

  • By Katharina Flicker

This month, in order to collect as many perspectives on (future) research environments as possible, we talked to Cixin Liu who is a Computer Engineer and Science Fiction Author. If you want to know why we AIs are “intelligent”, or why it matters to teach scientific reasoning, this is the thing for you to read!

The interview is available for download (English Version, Chinese Version) and can be read on the EOSCSecretariat Website.

SSHOC at LIBER 2021 Conference - Onboarding Citizen Science and the role of research libraries: barriers and accelerators

  • By Serenella Muradore Gallas

This workshop will be building on the outcomes of the session “Citizen Science: What it means for SSH and how can multidisciplinarity be achieved?” that took place during the conference “Realising the European Open Science Cloud: Towards a FAIR research data landscape for the social sciences, humanities and beyond.” in November 2020. The session provided an overview of what Citizen Science is, how research libraries have an essential role to play in its deployment through the BESPOC model and other means, acting as knowledge broker and facilitator among others. At the same time, several Citizen Science and crowdsourcing projects/activities were presented. At the panel session, possible collaborations were uncovered and the organisation of a potential second event was suggested with the prospect of addressing the relation and interaction between EOSC, Research Libraries and Citizen Science.

RDA4EOSC Webinar - Addressing Organisational Interoperability - 10 June, 13:00 CEST / 11:00 UTC

  • By Timea Biro

10 June 2021 - 11:00 UTC / 12:00 BST / 13:00 CEST - REGISTRATION


We welcome you to this webinar organised as part of the RDA4EOSC activities supporting organisational engagement with EOSC and similar initiatives. 

The webinar is focused on addressing issues of organisational interoperability as a means to support internal and external coordination and collaboration, increase efficiency, alignment and engagement with the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). 

As defined in the context of both the European International Framework and the EOSC Interoperability Framework, organisational interoperability refers to the way in which organisations align their business processes, responsibilities and expectations to achieve commonly agreed and mutually beneficial goals. 

In this webinar we will look at a practical example of work done at organisational level to support interoperability. Oscar Corcho, co-author of the EOSC Interoperability Framework report will detail the ongoing organisational interoperability work at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), especially in reference to the strategy, policy and process development and alignment.  

He will be joined by Juan Bicarregui, STFC and chair of the EOSC WG on Rules of Participation and Kheeran Dharmawardena, Cytrax Consulting and chair of the RDA Interest group on social dynamics of Data Interoperability. The panel discussion will explore the topic of organisational interoperability addressing in particular issues connected to organisational processes. It will also look at how this connects to the EOSC Rules of Participation and how initiatives within the RDA can support this and similar organisational interoperability work going forward.

Towards an All-Atlantic Data Space for the Ocean - Join us on 3 June

  • By Federico Drago

We would like to invite the ocean science community to join the upcoming Towards an All-Atlantic Data Space for the Ocean online workshop on 3 June, starting at 13:00 UTC (15:00 CEST) that the Blue-Cloud initiative is organising together with the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance (AANChOR), the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative, H2020 iAtlantic and H2020 AtlantECO, initiatives, as a side event of the All-Atlantic2021 R&I for a Sustainable Ocean Stakeholder Conference. You can find more information and the agenda here.

The event is organised around two panel discussions engaging an extremely rich list of panellists, while engagement with the audience will also be ensured via a tool called Mentimeter.
Your participation would be really valuable.

  • Session 1: Measure Once, Use Many Times – standards, best practices, challenges and incentives for maximizing the use of ocean data in the Atlantic region - chaired by Jay Pearlman, IEEE / SG-OBPS. The focus of the session will be on sharing best practices towards FAIR data/interoperability (practical examples) from across the Atlantic region. The panellists will showcase what their organizations are doing with respect to interoperability through the use of international standards, as well as insights and lessons learned from their perspective and how could this contribute towards moving further collaboration across the Atlantic. The panel will then move around challenges/opportunities ahead.
  • Session 2: Towards an All-Atlantic Data Space for the Ocean: Needs, challenges, opportunities, and partnerships will be an open, moderated discussion, using some guided questions via Mentimeter, on the priority actions required to achieve the goals of an All-Atlantic Data Space. This will be moderated by Martin Visbeck, GEOMAR.

Registration for the event is open here

ARGO offers near real-time status updates which allow both end-users and site admins to have an overview of the services offered at any given point in time via a web user interface and via enriched email notifications. ARGO generates custom Availability and Reliability reports based on the aggregated monitoring data. The rich monitoring data collected in ARGO service is actually stored in a highly flexible big data friendly form using state-of-the-art computational pipelines and formats. This provides the ability to reuse & analyze the data in different ways such as to highlight service usage patterns and provide a number of trends and insights.

In this training session we are going to show the process we follow to monitor a new service with ARGO. In addition, the real time computations and the results via the alerts, API and UI will be shown.
ARGO is a service jointly developed and maintained...
