Thematic Discovery Marketplaces for the European Open Science Cloud

Appleton, Owen; Petzold Andreas; Graf, Kay; Goble, Carole; Fischer, Frank; Richter, Tobias; Willems, Marieke

This session aimed to showcase the ecosystem of thematic marketplaces for the EOSC and their role as aggregators. EOSChub kickstarted the session by painting the landscape of science discovery marketplaces. All 5 EOSC cluster projects highlighted how each of their value propositions relate to the EOSC portal based on  key lines of activities that cluster projects for aggregation.  Such as UX design & development, content & sources, curation & governance.  We’ll discover the similarities and differences in these approaches, share best practices and identify possibilities for future collaborations.
