Brief description

EOSC Enhance pursues 4 objectives:    

  1. Enhance the service provider interface and incorporate new services and resources into the EOSC catalogue
  2. Accelerate the deployment and uptake of EOSC services and resources   
  3. Increase user demand for EOSC services and resources via portal improvements and development
  4. Enabling easier access to thematic cloud services and data

EOSC Enhance will improve and enhance the discoverability of scientific services and data resources by further developing and widening the EOSC catalogue. This will be done through the integration of additional services and data resources (notably the ESFRI clusters and thematic and geographic clouds) as well as further technical enhancement of the functionalities for service providers (Open APIs, AAI) and users (search and comparison tools, etc.). Quality reports will be provided to service providers.
