INFRAEOSC-03-2020: Integration and consolidation of the existing pan-European access mechanism to public research infrastructures and commercial services through the EOSC Portal

The integration and consolidation of e-infrastructure platforms initiated under the Research Infrastructures WP 2016-2017,and the work carried out by EU funded projects, in particular those mentioned in the SWD for the Implementation Roadmap of the EOSC, have set the ground for the development of the EOSC Portal. Through its main components (EOSC website, catalogue of services,marketplace), researchers and other users can find and use research-enabling services and resources, technical support, integrated solutions from the EOSC providers, and be informed about and engaged with, the EOSC vision.

Building on this work, the challenge is to consolidate and scale up the EOSC Portal and its underlying service platform in order to:

  • Strengthen the EOSC Portal so that it continues to provide an increasing portfolio of high quality, standard compliant and interoperable services of proven user interest and scientific relevance from a wide range of national, regional and institutional public research infrastructures in Europe as well as from commercial service providers;
  • Reinforce the role of the marketplace as the access channel to integrated, composable and reliable services;
  • Attract more users, within the research community and beyond, by enhancing the user experience and seamlessly accommodating their needs;
  • Ensure its long-term sustainability taking into account all the relevant governance and business frameworks.

Type of Action: Research and Innovation action

INFRAEOSC-07-2020: Increasing the service offer of the EOSC Portal

While the overall management and operation of the activities of the EOSC Portal is addressed in INFRAEOSC-03-2020, the challenge in this topic is to effectively coordinate at pan-European level the provision through the EOSC Portal of state-of-the-art research enabling services from a wide range of national, regional and institutional public infrastructures in Europe, covering diverse thematic domains, and further non-research resources in order to:

  • Scale up the EOSC Portal
  • Set-up a model for interaction between service providers and the EOSC Portal operators through pan-European e-infrastructure entities, based on transparency and effectiveness of cost compensation.

Type of Action: Research and Innovation action
