The DataPublication@ U.Porto pilot gathers experiments where Dendro, a prototype Research Data Management platform, is used as a gateway to EUDAT. Dendro provides an ontology-based environment for dataset description and publication for the long tail of research. It is built as a multi-disciplinary platform and its preliminary evaluation was carried out with a panel of research groups from the University of Porto. In the scope of the pilot, researchers from several domains within the University of Porto will be asked to follow the steps of a prescribed workflow and organize, describe and deposit datasets created in the scope of their projects.
Our data pilot will provide a mirror of experimental data from two magnetic confinement nuclear fusion devices (Tokamaks) at the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE): the Joint European Torus (JET) and the Mega Amp Spherical Tokamak (MAST). The research community will be plasma physics and fusion researchers, engineers and technologists from the 29 members of the EUROfusion consortium and around 100 associated organisations, including those delivering the next generation nuclear fusion device (ITER) in southern France, namely ITER-IO (France) and Fusion 4 Energy (Spain).
The efficient data archiving for nanoscience community is a key challenge, i.e. harvesting from open-access scientific Data Repositories (DR) that could support sample/material preparation protocols with absolute metrology, and adequate metadata for the characterization and scientific investigations. Existing standards, recommendations and evolving best practices of data management should be incorporated, as well as sensible reuse of existing e-infrastructures where applicable rather than building own e-infrastructure for nanoscience from scratch.
The Jülich Atmospheric Data Distribution Service (JADDS) aims at providing the regional air quality community world-wide with customized atmospheric boundary conditions of trace gas and aerosol concentrations from the Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Service (CAMS).
IST DataRep is the institutional repository for publishing research output of IST Austria affiliates. IST DataRep was implemented to help scientists fulfil the requirements from funding bodies and to meet the growing impact of publishing research data. Therefore, the deposited data collections will be mainly open access.
In order to achieve data publication in a FAIR manner and foster their findability, accessibility, interoperability and reusability, a set of (FAIR) data tools are being developed, including the FAIR Data Point (FDP), which is a software layer on top of datasets to expose them as FAIR (inter-linkable) data. The FDP provides information about the available datasets in terms of their metadata as well as the actual access to the data in an interoperable format. Our pilot will evaluate whether current EUDAT services could be extended to behave as FDPs or a new FDP-based service should be proposed.
Enriching Europeana Newspapers aims to expose the full text aggregated as part of the Europeana Newspapers project. It contains over 11 million pages of full text of historic newspapers (mainly but not all 19th century), drawn from national and research libraries across Europe. A portal is already in place. This pilot aims to expose and improve the text for more data driven usage (ie large scale data analysis of the whole corpus).
The European Incoherent Scatter Scientific Association (EISCAT) operates three incoherent scatter radars, instruments probing the Earth’s ionosphere. Two are located in northern Fennoscandia and one on Svalbard. EISCAT are now developing the next generation radar, EISCAT_3D, consisting of antenna arrays in northern Norway, Sweden and Finland. The purpose of this data pilot is to use EUDAT services to establish a unified archival and data search system for the existing EISCAT incoherent scatter radars. The outcome will be used to explore whether and how EUDAT services can be customised for data archival and discovery for the future EISCAT_3D radar system.
This pilot focuses on facilitating long-term storage and sharing amongst a wide scientific user community of high-resolution climate model output data. It aims at building a repository serving the climate change impact modelling community, providing selected variables at high temporal and spatial resolution, with a focus on climate extremes and the hydrological cycle in areas with complex orography. Potential users include researchers studying the impacts of climate on ecosystems, floods, landslides, fires. The archive will contain high-resolution data from the PRACE project Climate SPHINX and will later be extended with simulations from the projects PRIMAVERA, CRESCENDO and HighResMIP.
Creation of a central online location for data sharing for all Aalto University researchers. This will host both data and metadata: the name, description, ownership, source, and information on usage. Other dataset hosting sites exist, so our main target use case expanding EUDAT scope is intra-Aalto University interaction. Researchers with data analysis skills will be able to find data related to their work, as well as the domain experts responsible for that data. The solutions should be tightly integrated to existing computing resources and Big Data platforms available nationally.
