In 2015 the vision of a European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) emerged. EOSC would provide an open and trusted environment for accessing and managing a wide range of publicly funded research data and related services, helping researchers reap the full benefits of data-driven science. EOSC is currently in its implementation phase (2021-2027) which requires active engagement and support to ensure widespread implementation and adoption of the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) principles, to define and share standards and develop tools and services, to allow researchers to find, access, reuse and combine research results.
The two projects are complementary instruments enabling an operational, open and FAIR EOSC ecosystem. Where FAIRCORE4EOSC will develop EOSC-Core components to adopt, FAIR-IMPACT - in which the IMM institute is involved - will support the implementation of FAIR-enabling practices across scientific communities and research outputs at a European, national, and institutional level.
This June 2022, the two European Horizon projects kicked off in Amsterdam. Learn more in this joint article.
