EOSC Future attempts to integrate, consolidate, and connect e-infrastructures, research communities, and initiatives in Open Science to further develop the EOSC Portal, EOSC-Core and EOSC- Exchange of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). EOSC Future is structured around six thematic pillars that strategically group the work package tasks and activities and coherently present the key objectives and activities of the project to stakeholders: Policy & Strategy, Connection & Integration, Excellent Science & Interdisciplinarity, Growth & Innovation, Skills & Training, and Engagement & Communications.
EOSC Future will unlock the potential of European research via a vision of Open Science for Society by (1) bringing all major stakeholders in the EOSC ecosystem together under one project umbrella to break the disciplinary and community silos and consolidate key EOSC project outputs, (2) developing scientific use cases in collaboration with the thematic communities showcasing the benefits and societal value of EOSC for doing excellent and interdisciplinary research, (3) engaging the wider EOSC community and increasing the visibility of EOSC through communications campaigns, marketing strategies, and physical and online engagement events, and (4) including the EOSC community in developing the EOSC Portal (including the long tail of science, public and private sectors, and international partners) via co-creation open calls.
CSC participates in the project through EUDAT and leads the work package responsible for stakeholder engagement, outreach and marketing. CSC also contributes to the project strategy and EOSC alignment with strategic initiatives, such as Euro-HPC, GAIA X and Data Spaces, and other EU-funded projects. In addition, CSC contributes to the work packages on EOSC Service Planning and Delivery, Integration of Community Services and Products into EOSC and Commercial Services.
