EUDAT is currently directly involved in three excellent opportunities to support researchers, research communities, research infrastructures and initiatives from across Europe.
EUDAT’s own Call for Data Pilots is currently open until 30th September and offers research communities and research infrastructures the opportunity to test, integrate and/or further develop, in close collaboration with the EUDAT consortium, one or multiple components of the EUDAT service suite through concrete data collaboration pilots. EUDAT will match all effort with a corresponding amount (1 PM Pilot Team = 1 PM EUDAT). Complete details and the application form at http://eudat.eu/eudat-call-data-pilots.
The joint pilot call for DECI (Distributed European Computing Initiative) Tier-1 resources and EUDAT storage services, offering the possibility to couple EUDAT storage capacity to DECI HPC resources. Projects that are awarded DECI resources will be eligible to be considered for EUDAT storage. Around 1 PB (1000 TB) of storage capacity is available within the EUDAT call, or 150 TB for each project that receives DECI access. EUDAT guarantees data storage at one or several of the 12 EUDAT sites for at least 24 months after the end of the DECI optional program grant, free of charge. Applicants requesting access to EUDAT resources and services should apply for these via the DECi13 application form https://deci-peer-review.cines.fr/. Projects that apply to both the DECI and EUDAT calls are invited to indicate a preferred EUDAT site. For more information about this call, please see http://www.prace-ri.eu/DECI-13-Call.
RDA Europe Call for Collaboration Projects: RDA Europe has reserved funds to be invested in joint collaborations with communities focusing on one or more of the following subjects:
- Co-organization of domain workshops or training courses on barriers, solutions, RDA outputs and adoption possibilities.
- Adoption of a specific RDA output and integration into the infrastructure software stack.
- Adaptation of existing software stack to be compliant with emerging RDA guidelines.
- Writing guidelines on RDA outputs focused on domain specialties.
Proposals that include support from an e-Infrastructure offering further resources and support in terms of storage, data services, etc. will be favourably evaluated. Currently EUDAT has made a formal offer to participate with funds. More details and application at https://europe.rd-alliance.org/rda-europe-call-collaboration-projects.
