Proposals for scaling up the European Open Science Cloud

Ten proposals were submitted under the last calls of Horizon 2020 for the implementation of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). The calls, with a deadline on 18 June 2020 and a total budget of 64,9 million euro, aimed to consolidate, scale up and increase the service offer of the EOSC Portal.

Out of the 10 proposals, one was submitted under the INFRAEOSC-03-2020 call, aiming to strengthen the EOSC Portal, increase access to composable and reliable services, attract new users and ensuring the long-term sustainability of the Portal.  

Nine proposals were submitted under INFRAEOSC-07-2020 call, aiming to increase the provision, through the EOSC Portal, of research enabling services from a wide range of national, regional and institutional public infrastructures in Europe. Indicatively, such services include distributed and cloud computing resources, data services, services supporting the interaction in heterogeneous distributed environments, services for scholarly communication, etc.

The new projects are expected to start by January 2021, after the evaluation in the coming months.
