EOSC Core and Marketplace Provider Days: Getting more out of services & research products

April 26, 2022

This week EOSC projects are joining forces to give us a 360-degree view of EOSC for providers from 26-28 April.

Whether you want to start providing services and resources through EOSC or are already doing so – today’s sessions had something for everyone. In 5 sessions, EOSC Future project experts and associated project partners outlined what makes an ‘EOSC provider’, the types of resources they can provide, how to become an EOSC provider as well as upcoming features and opportunities. We also examined the core features that enable the interoperability and composition of these resources across research infrastructures (referred to generally as ‘the EOSC Core’: AAI, monitoring, accounting, order management, helpdesk, etc.). If the EOSC Core is the glue of the EOSC ecosystem, it is also a foundation for more advanced features and opportunities for data and service providers.

In response to the question ‘Why become an EOSC provider’, other upsides were considered:

  • an interoperability framework that will make providers’ services more accessible, findable beyond specific research communities
  • onboarding requirements and support to deliver a more targeted and improved user experience
  • a variety of tools for providing services or research products according to FAIR and composable data recommendations
  • the EOSC providers portal, the window into EOSC, whereby providers can onboard and manage their services
  • gaining visibility among funders, national and EU officials, publishers and other institutions.

All in all, today provided a good entryway into discussions, and we invite you to watch the session recordings here.
