EOSC Enhance has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement no. 871160.
EOSC Enhance is a 24-month project funded by the European Commission and tasked with progressing the vision for the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). During the lifetime of EOSC Enhance, project partners developed and improved the functionality of the EOSC Portal, further augmenting the catalogue of services assembled to date, and connecting independent, thematic data clouds for the benefit of users and service providers across Europe. These objectives are achieved via wide-ranging stakeholder consultation and in close collaboration with the EOSC Governance. Users, service providers and existing EOSC-related projects played an active role in the co-design of the portal specifications. With a laser focus on facilitating the interoperability and discoverability of services and resources across scientific disciplines, we have applied the emerging EOSC Rules of Participation, using specifications, guidelines, tools, and APIs to link service and resource providers.
EUDAT contributed to WP2 on EOSC Portal Standards, service descriptions and interoperability frameworks. In addition, EUDAT expertise will be applied to task 4.4 on improving the discoverability of research data. Trust-IT Services, an EUDAT CDI Member was also a consortium member in its own right and oversaw the communications activities of the website and the maintenance and improvement of the EOSC Portal Content Component.
