EOSC-Life is the project regrouping the 13 Life Sciences (LS) RIs in Europe into the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and joining forces to create an open collaborative digital space for life science. Under EOSC-Life the 13 LS RIs will publish their data as FAIR Data Resources, link reusable Tools and Workflows to standardised computing services in national life-science clouds, and connect with their scientific users across Europe to a single login authentication and resource authorisation system.

By the end of the project, EOSC-Life will be established as the new norm for digital biology in Europe – accessible by Europe’s 500,000 life scientists. Under EOSC-Life, EATRIS C&S will work closely with the EATRIS data core team formed by five EATRIS linked third parties:

  • University of Helsinki (FI),
  • IMTM (CZ),
  • Lygature (NL),
  • VHIR (ES) and
  • Mario Negri Institute (IT).

EATRIS’ linked third parties will contribute to the project through WP1 Publishing FAIR RI data resources in EOSC; WP2 Make tools and workflows interoperable and reusable in the EOSC across RIs and WP4 Policies, specifications and tools for the management of data for biological and medical research. Under WP8, Mario Negri Institute will lead a task on assessing the impact of life-science open data in the cloud on data reproducibility.

EATRIS acts as co-lead of WP8 for Innovation and Sustainability, and WP9 for Training.
