Introduction and background

RDA was a partner of the European EOSC Future project that is developing a trusted platform for open science and FAIR data, resources and services in all scientific disciplines. The project’s ambition can be summarised as extending the “baseline European Open Science Cloud” and turning it into a platform with a durable set of user-friendly components “designed for the long haul”. Most of the key exploitable results (KERs) of the project are aligned with core issues of interest to the RDA community: interoperability, community-building and cross-/interdisciplinary research. 

RDA Involvement in the EOSC Future

Engaging with underrepresented communities

RDA partnered with the Digital Repository of Ireland to engage with communities that had – so far – been underrepresented in the EOSC-related activities. The activity aimed to increase EOSC awareness in these communities and identify obstacles to engagement that should be addressed in the future. The results of this activity were summarised in Report summary cards such as one below.

For the full set of summary cards, please see the corresponding Zenodo publication. The details of the activity and in-depth analysis the summary cards are based are published in a separate report.

Open calls

The EOSC Future project focused on strengthening links between EOSC and RDA communities. Through the 11 open calls coordinated by the RDA, it provided financial support to 40 targeted actions involving 16 research disciplines and researchers from 22 countries.
