Objectives

The EOSC is an ambitious initiative aiming at the federation of existing and planned digital infrastructures for research. It seeks to remove barriers among disciplines and countries and make it easier for researchers to share and access the digital resources they need. In order to realise the EOSC vision, one of the key aspects to be addressed is to simplify the way funders can channel fundings to procure resources and communities to consequently obtain access. This session aims to present:

  • the current experience  and lesson learnt in procuring services for research (HNSciCloud, GEANT IaaS Framework Agreement)
  • relevant results from the EOSCpilot project
  • upcoming initiatives (Archiver)
Main target audience
  • service providers managers/directors
  • research managers
  • policy makers
  • business designers
  • procurement and purchasing experts
