LIBER participated in the kick-off meeting of the European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot (EOSCpilot) project, 17-18 January in Amsterdam.
LIBER is one of the 33 partners working on the EOSCpilot — a project which will support the first development phase of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
The EOSCpilot project will address some of the key reasons why European research is not yet fully tapping into the potential of data. Specifically, it will:
- Reduce fragmentation between data infrastructures by working across scientific and economic domains, countries and governance models, and
- Improve interoperability between data infrastructures by demonstrating how data and resources can be shared even when they are large and complex and in varied formats.
