The European Open Science Cloud Portal was launched on 23 November 2018. The new EOSC Portal facilitates discovery of data and resources; processing and analysis; research data management; computation; storage; networking; training and security. To mark the launch of the EOSC Portal, the European Commission issued two supporting documents: Prompting EOSC in Practice which explains the governance of the new ecosystem, and; Turning FAIR into Reality which provides an overview of requirements to fulfill the goal of making research data ‘Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable.’ EOSC has six components…
EC Recommendation on Access to and Preservation of Scientific Information, in Support of Open Science
The European Commission published a new Recommendation on Access to, and Preservation of, Scientific Information on 25 April, to promote the transition to open science in the European Union. The recommendation provides guidance on incentives for openness; research data management; text and data mining; and technical standards for the re-use of research content. The European Commission published a roadmap for the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) 14 March 2018. The EOSC is a “pan-European federation of research data infrastructures, with a view to moving from the current fragmentation, to a situation where data is easy to store, find, share and re-use.”

EUI members can now submit their research datasets for inclusion in the EUI ResData repository – a solution for sharing and archiving EUI research data outputs. Library staff provide advice on dataset tagging (metadata), formats, structure and whether data should be archived under embargo, or made available as open data. The first step is to complete the online form – providing details about the dataset for reposit. The Library will then make an appointment for data transfer. Full details.
