At last! A discussion forum for all five ESFRI cluster projects, RDA Working and Interest Groups, and EOSC representatives on our journey to EOSC. Seats are limited, register here to join the event.

During this event we’ll be focusing on the technical, social and governance issues we all face. What can we learn from each other and take back to the data communities we serve?

Connecting to EOSC

The five European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) cluster projects provide a gathering point for various ESFRI Research Infrastructures to connect to European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) in large thematic domains: 

  • ENVRI-FAIR - Europe’s environmental research infrastructures 
  • EOSC-life - creating EOSC for the life sciences 
  • ESCAPE - astronomy & particle physics cluster
  • PaNOSC - Photon and Neutron Open Science Cloud 
  • SSHOC - Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud 

Research Data Alliance (RDA) - With over 8800 members and 87 working & interest groups, of which 25+ domain specific, RDA is the strategic partner to represent the research data community for EOSC.  And to achieve progress in thematic areas that need a global approach in a common framework.
