The EOSC Future projects - background, goals and outputs

Introduction

The EOSC Future project provided funding to third parties through the open call mechanism to create stronger links between the EOSC and RDA communities and to increase the uptake of their respective results at different levels. In addition to supporting the work of the RDA Domain Ambassadors, several projects were funded through these calls to concentrate efforts to solve specific challenges identified by the community and to maximise the value of RDA to EOSC. These project proposals were evaluated by an external review board based on the criteria published in the following calls:

Profiles

EU FAR - EU Funds by Area Results

The key objective of the EU FAR project is to stimulate development of granular open data on EU funding. To this end, the work will be conducted for Romania by providing open data aligned with the FAIR movement (Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reusability).

Enhancing interoperability through use of PIDs in research platforms

The project will provide a concrete demonstration of the benefits of data and metadata interoperability through the incorporation of PIDs in a research infrastructure. This will be achieved by designing the ability to incorporate DataCite DOIs into the RSpace digital research platform, which includes an electronic lab notebook that is integrated with a sample management system.

Project info: funded through the RDA / EOSC Future Call for Interoperability Framework Contributions call

 

How to engage regional and European data infrastructure communities with relevant RDA and EOSC communities

This initiative supports and creates synergies around a selection of five activities that will serve as case studies and demonstrator initiatives on how to engage regional and European data infrastructure communities with relevant RDA and EOSC communities to converge on interoperability solutions. 

Project info: funded through the RDA / EOSC Future Call for Interoperability Framework Contributions call

 

Enhancing Usability and Contributability of RDA DMP Common Standard for Machine-Actionable DMPs

The project addresses shortcomings of the current RDA DMP Common Standard specification has several issues affecting its usability and the possibility for others to contribute. Mainly, not having a single source of truth in the specification causes issues with consistency and community contributions. There are also other issues related to making new releases of the standard, or its website. This project will analyze and address those by applying expertise from software engineering, especially processes verified by practice in open-source software.

Project info: funded through the second RDA/EOSC Future Call for Optimising (RDA) Open Science Frameworks and Guidelines in the context of EOSC.

Reproducibility in the analysis of brain data (WG)

The WG Neuroimaging aims to create a community around the special case of reproducibility in brain data analysis. Neuroimaging data have the particularity that they involve a large number of processing steps on a very heterogeneous set of equipment and infrastructures from the moment they are gathered in proprietary devices through preprocessing, analysis to annotation, curation and finally deposited into open repositories for others to use in upstream research. A lot of this pipeline remains an error-prone, manual process that relies on the researcher’s voluntary (and unpaid) efforts to ensure the traceability and provenance of the data, the reproducibility and replicability of the work.

 

Psychology RDA Interest Group

Aligning with RDA’s mission, the purpose of the Psychology RDA Interest Group (IG) is to raise awareness of the importance of data sharing, and to provide support with respect to the technical skills needed for FAIR data sharing within the Psychology community. This IG brings together Psychology researchers with an interest in open, transparent, and reproducible research methods and practices. 

 

Data Visitation WG

The EOSC-Future & RDA Artificial Intelligence and Data Visitation Working Group (AIDV- WG) will address ethical, legal, and social challenges of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Data Visitation (DV) affecting of state-of-the art data technology impacting scientific exchange in the context of data sharing and the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

 

 

Key Outputs of the Projects

The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no 101017536.
