Deadlines Postponed for RDA - EOSC Future Open Calls
Update as of 27 October: Deadlines for RDA Open Calls are postponed until further notice. There is an administrative block that requires the open call to be suspended and others to be published at a later date.
What is the focus of this call?
Optimising (RDA) Open Science Frameworks and Guidelines in the Context of EOSC
As part of the EOSC Future project, the Research Data Alliance (RDA) is launching a call for proposals to improve the technical data frameworks for the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). This call is seeking applications from individuals or organisations around the concept of improving existing technical data frameworks while at the same time leveraging on existing RDA recommendations and outputs. Successful proposals will focus on maintaining, optimising and documenting existing frameworks with particular reference to RDA’s Outputs and Recommendations. Special attention will be given to mapping out how to reimplement the frameworks in the context of EOSC and make relevant documentation available. Proposals are expected to detail a future vision, for example of how the community will build future iterations so that future communities can easily operationalise the frameworks.
Who can apply?
The Research Data Alliance welcomes applications from persons or groups from European Member States and Associated Countries committed to FAIR data (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) and the principles that RDA holds dear. The call is open to a wide variety of applicants, including junior or senior researchers, mid-career data professionals, and data scientists. Applicants can be part of a European research group, organisation or SME. Note that this call is not open to members of the EOSC Future consortium.
Further criteria and conditions are detailed on the EOSC Future Grants Platform.
How to apply
Proposals should be submitted by 29 October 2021, 16.00 CEST via the EOSC Future Grants Platform.
What does the funding include?
Grants of up to €12,500 will be awarded over the lifetime of the EOSC Future project. Further calls with a similar focus may be opened in 2022 and 2023.
