The 5 EU-funded INFRAEOSC-07-2020 projects (C-SCALE, DICE, EGI-ACE, OpenAIRE Nexus, Reliance) were set up to enrich EOSC with resources and services from a wide range of national, regional and institutional infrastructures throughout Europe. Hence, it was beneficial for them to join forces though a collaboration agreement that covered stakeholder engagement to support the uptake of EOSC, training and technical development of the EOSC Future platform.

The joint engagement activities with the INFRAEOSC-07 projects were targeted mainly at users to widen the EOSC user-base and increase the uptake of EOSC services and resources by new users, but also to providers to encourage new service providers to onboard services to EOSC Exchange following the example of the 07 projects.

Ask Me Anything series: February – September 2022

The Ask-Me-Anything (AMA) webinar series consisted of six one-hour-long sessions co-organised by the projects to widen the EOSC user base. In each session, the projects presented one type of EOSC resource that they had onboarded to the EOSC Marketplace and provided the audience with an opportunity to ask any questions that they might have on that specific resource or the evolving EOSC Portal in general.

If you are a researcher, you know that data is the essential element of your everyday work. The way you store your data plays a major role in how easily it can be accessed, used, reused and kept secure.

The 1st AMA set out to answer the following quesitons: Which EOSC services can help you with all of your data storage needs? What is the concrete added value of these resources?

Watch the session recording.


During our second ‘ask me anything’ webinar, we discovered how software services are classified, ordered and used via EOSC. Providers have learned how to onboard their own resources to the software repository. You also had a chance to ask EOSC community members and administrators all of your software-related questions.

During this session, we discovered the most frequently used compute services available through EOSC: clouds, HTC/HPC services, orchestrators, workload managers, notebooks and more. For each service, we were guided through the ordering, implementation and integration processes.

During the 4th ‘ask me anything’ session, we focused on aggregator services supporting data collection and processing throughout the research life cycle.

Supercomputing and FAIR data infrastructures are critical strategic resources and are key to ensuring that researchers reap the full benefits of data-driven science, lead the path to grand scientific discoveries and address global challenges. Alignment and convergence with the HPC ecosystem is a natural scale-out for EOSC, driven by the commitment to serve the research communities and an imperative to coordinate technical choices and align the architectures of the HPC and EOSC federated environments.  

In this Ask Me Anything session we learned about ongoing work that supports the interoperability and the increased use of the HPC resources in the EOSC context.

In this session, members of the DICE project have presented and answered questions about their work on managing and protecting sensitive research data (such as health-related data).

EOSC Provider Days: 26-28 April 2022 (online

EOSC Future invited the INFRAEOSC-07 projects to contribute to the EOSC Provider Days, which was organised to encourage new providers to join EOSC. This 3-day event explained what resources can be onboarded and how, and what are the benefits of becoming an EOSC provider. The event included tailored sessions for different provider groups, such as libraries, repositories, national infrastructures and many more.

EOSC Symposium 2022 & 2023

The EOSC Symposium is an annual event co-hosted with the European Commission, the EOSC Association and the EOSC Steering Board. The EOSC Future project helped to organise the 2022 and 2023 editions.

These events provided the perfect opportunity for the diverse EOSC community, including the different EOSC-related projects, to come together and share results and best practices

Use Case events

The projects co-organised two use case events for researchers and other potential EOSC end-users that showcased how the EOSC services and resources offered by the 6 projects are being utilized in real-life and what benefits do they bring to their users and science itself.

#1 Pan-European digital assets supporting research communities – Benefits & opportunities, 5-6 December 2022, online 

The first online event Pan-European digital assets supporting research communities presented 19 use cases mapping them against the Sustainable Development Goals to link them to the grand societal challenges. A keynote speaker, Marco Zennaro, Head of Science, Technology and Innovation Unit, UNESCO, opened the webinar and set the scene for the use case presentations and demonstrations.

Day 2 – Pan-European digital assets supporting research communities: Benefits & opportunities

#2 Use Cases from the EOSC Community webinar, 16 May 2023, online 

The second iteration of the use case event, Use Cases from the EOSC Community, was organised in the following spring to present new use cases developed by the projects since the use case event  in December 2022.

EGI Conference, 21 June 2023, Poznań, Poland 

The projects convened for the last time at the EGI Conference where they had a joint session where the projects presented both the services they had developed and examples of how they are being utilized in real-life. This joint session marked the end of the EOSC Future & INFRAEOSC-07 collaboration.  

EOSC Portal updates

The projects produced together the EOSC Provider Toolkit, a set of short and concise promotional material to communicate in an easily understandable way why and how to become an EOSC Provider, for example an infographic EOSC providers – Who they are & what they provide.

INFRAEOSC in practice 

The EOSC Future project produced a collection of success stories — or ‘EOSC in practice‘ stories — from various end-users. These testimonials demonstrate the impact of the EOSC and showcase its collaborative essence and transformative capabilities across disciplines.

The INFRAEOSC-07 projects were featured in the following:
