Brief description

The European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot project (EOSCpilot) is supporting the first phase in the development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) as described in the EC Communication on European Cloud Initiatives [2016]. The EOSCpilot project will address some of the key reasons why European research is not yet fully tapping into the potential of data. The EOSCpilot is a consortium of 33 pan-European organisations & 15 third parties covering a range of disciplines and organisations working together to achieve a series of objectives, like Governance, Policy, Science Demonstrators, Services, Interoperability, Skills and Stakeholder Engagement. Website: http://www.eoscpilot.eu

Our role

Trust-IT leads the communication and engagement activities (WP8) of the project, together with the development of technical solutions enablign and facilitating the communication among all the 33 partners. Specifically for this aspect, Trust-IT is developing the EOSCpilot Intranet - a dedicated virtual environment that will allow all the consortium members to easily communicate with each other and to be always up-to-date on activities. Trust-IT is also in charge of planning and managing EOSCpilot Events & third party events, which will be performed during the 24 months duration of the project.

Duration and funding

Jan 2017 to Dec 2018

The European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot project (EOSCpilot) is funded by the European Commission, DG Research & Innovation under contract no. 739563 and is coordinated by Juan Bicarregui, STFC, UK
