How will European citizens benefit from this project, both from the technology developments it accomplishes as well as the scientific breakthroughs it may achieve?
For researchers, the EOSC Portal means broader access to services supporting their scientific discovery and collaboration across disciplinary and geographical boundaries.
EOSC-hub is also committed to support industry and SMEs through the EOSC-hub Digital Innovation Hub, which is working closely with six industry pilots to explore how they can benefit from EOSC services and generate more value.
Is EU funding important for the European research? How has it contributed to your projects/careers/success?
It is essential; the EOSC-hub mission and expected results would not have been possible without the consortium’s previous projects funded through the FP7 and Horizon 2020 EU work programmes. It was thanks to this generous support that projects such as EGI-InSPIRE, EGI-Engage, EUDAT2020 and INDIGO-DataCloud were able to lay the foundations that now make our contribution to EOSC a reality.
What are you going to exhibit at ICT2018? What should visitors expect to see/experience upon visiting your booth?
Visitors will be able to learn more about EOSC-hub services and the work that is being developed in the Digital Innovation Hub. We will also demonstrate how to use the EOSC Portal to get access to computer, storage and analytical services for research.
