Mission

To establish an e-infrastructure for scientific data which supports seamless access, use, re-use of data and trust of data sources, where the physical and technical infrastructure is invisible for the researcher. To open up science and its results, for everyone to benefit from, using digital technologies. To coordinate the European Cloud initiative with focus on the infrastructure part of the Open Science Cloud and in particular governance (including a legal structure) and funding models. To lead and implement eResearch Infrastructures Programme (except PRACE) including GEANT, OpenAire and RDA activities. The unit will ensure the coordination of the eResearch Infrastructure Work Programme and the secretariat of the Research Infrastructures Programme Committee, in cooperation with RTD. The unit would have a "Data Policy for Science" sector that would include Open Access policy and the support of OpenAire and RDA.
