EOSC-Life launches 1st Digital Life Sciences Open Call

European Open Science Cloud (EOSC-Life) Open Call

EOSC-Life brings together the 13 Life Science ‘ESFRI’ research infrastructures, including ECRIN, to create an open, digital and collaborative space for biological and medical research.

EOSC-Life has launched its first Digital Life Sciences Open Call: A European Open Science Cloud (EOSC-Life) call for projects sharing data, tools and workflows in the cloud. This call offers financial support for projects, to enable life science researchers to connect their research to the cloud, alongside training, advice and assistance from data experts, tool developers and cloud specialists.

Proposals should align with the goals of EOSC (European Open Science Cloud) – ie. enabling data sharing for the purpose of furthering scientific research. The project’s overarching aim is to make life science research data publicly available in a FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) way in the EOSC.

Proposals should fit with one or more of the following themes:

  • Data curation, handling and integration for publishing into the cloud
  • Tool interoperability, workflows and containerisation
  • Cloud deployment and resources

Deadline for proposal submission is 22 December 2020.
