It's a recent news that the European Commission has successfully reviewed the proposal for the EOSC-hub project, submitted at the end of March 2017 as a Research Innovation Action to the H2020-EINFRA-12-2017(a) call, which is expected to start in early 2018.

The scope of the EOSC-hub project is to create the integration and management system of the future European Open Science Cloud that delivers a catalogue of services, software and data from the EUDAT CDIEGI Federation, INDIGO-DataCloud and major research e-infrastructures. This integration and management system (the Hub) builds on mature processes, policies and tools from the leading European federated e-Infrastructures (including EUDAT) to cover the whole life-cycle of services, from planning to delivery.

EUDAT and the EGI Foundation play two key roles within EOSC-hub, respectively being the project director and the project coordinator, with the collaboration of other European Research Infrastructures, national e-Infrastructure providers, SMEs and academic institutions.
