On 1 March 2019, ERINHA along with 12 other ESFRI Research Infrastructures in the Life Sciences domain joined forces to launch the EOSC-Life project which aims to create an open collaborative digital space for life science in the European Open Science Cloud.
To ensure that European Life Science remains at the forefront of global advances and to deepen research, scientific data along with its associated digital services must be findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR) across scientific disciplines and national boundaries.
FAIR data and services improve reproducibility of biomedical research, drive new scientific discoveries and enable any researcher in Europe and across the world to access and use them.
In EOSC-Life the research infrastructures will publish data from facilities and data resources in the EOSC and link these FAIR databases to open and reusable Tools and Workflows accessible to users via Europe’s national and international life-science clouds. EOSC-Life will also connect users across Europe to a single login authentication and resource authorisation system and develop data policies needed to preserve and deepen the trust given by research participants and patients volunteering their data and samples.
EOSC-Life has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme under grant agreement number 824087.
