RDA OPEN CALL ANNOUNCED: Cross disciplinary science adoption for EOSC #2

August 16, 2022

We want to develop a European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) whose technical specificities are receptive and responsive to the needs and realities of various domain-specific research communities in the EU. In pursuit of this overarching objective, the Research Data Alliance (RDA) is launching a series of open calls throughout the EOSC Future project.

In this context, we are launching a new open call with the Research Data Alliance (RDA) for ‘RDA cross-disciplinary science adoption in support of EOSC’, the second in it’s kind. Applicants should not only represent community-based, domain-specific research but also exemplify a commitment to FAIR data and data interoperability.

More specifically, we are looking for proposals that demonstrate, among other elements:

  • a methodology for streamlining cross-disciplinary research
  • specific benefits for research communities using EOSC services (e.g. data management & storage, cloud services, etc.)
  • examples or lessons learnt related to open, community-led standards and cross-domain interoperability
  • a commitment to the cross-disciplinary implementation of RDA outputs and recommendations.

Who can apply?

We welcome applications from persons or groups committed to FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) data and other principles that RDA holds dear. Applicants can be researchers (junior or senior), data scientists, part of a European research group, organisation or SME. Note: This call is not open to members of the EOSC Future consortium or projects based outside of an EU Member State or Associated Country.

Further criteria and conditions are detailed on the EOSC Future Grants Platform.


Applications are open until 15 September 2022, 16.00 CEST, via the EOSC Future Grants Platform.
