Beginning in January 2018, EOSC-Hub brings together several service providers to create the Hub: a single point of contact for European researchers and innovators to discover, access, use and reuse a wide range of resources for advanced data-driven research. For researchers, this means broader access to services, fostering their scientific discovery and collaboration across disciplinary and geographic boundaries.
Co-funded by the Horizon 2020 program of the European Union, the project mobilizes a hundred partners from 53 countries to create a common catalog of research data, services and research software; while collaborating closely with the projects eInfraCentral, EOSCpilot, GEANT 4.2, OpenAIRE-Advance and RDA Europe 4.0 to provide a consistent service offering to research communities across Europe.
CINES is involved in this project by providing its computing infrastructure and hosting of high-level data services, including hosting the eTDR, a digital preservation service based on robust and “ready to use” EUDAT services, which have been in operation for several years and provide data transfer capabilities.
