Call for proposals 2017 - H2020 - Implementing the european open science cloud H2020-INFRAEOSC-2018-2020 Closed!


 This call will achieve the vision put forward by the European Cloud Initiative and it will make the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) a reality. In order to realise an EOSC that truly supports interdisciplinary research and Open Science, a new pan-European model for research data and related services that is both scalable and flexible needs to be put in place, so that it can be adapted to the emerging needs of the scientific community and support the whole research data lifecycle. The new model will build on a pan-European service access mechanism – the EOSC hub[[EOSC hub refers to the single entry access mechanism to EOSC services that will be provided by the successful proposal resulting from the call EINFRA-12-2017.]] – providing access primarily to public e-infrastructure services supplied at national, regional and institutional levels. The Call will support the setup of an appropriate governance for such a relevant endeavour, which takes into account the outcomes of previous efforts and the active contribution of all scientific stakeholders. The Call will ensure strong positioning of EOSC in the context of similar initiatives in other world regions to enhance and ‘open to the world’ international collaboration.

  • INFRAEOSC-01-2018: Access to commercial services through the EOSC hub
  • INFRAEOSC-02-2019: Prototyping new innovative services
  • INFRAEOSC-03-2020: Integration and consolidation of the existing pan-European access mechanism to public research infrastructures and commercial services through the EOSC Portal
