    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Blue-Cloud is the thematic EOSC for the marine domain supporting FAIR and Open Science by developing a web-based environment that will provide scientists &amp;amp; researchers with enhanced analytical capabilities and cloud-computing resources, underpinned by simplified access to a wealth of multidisciplinary and interoperable marine data services.&lt;br&gt;
The project builds on existing European marine data infrastructures and e-infrastructures federating their services within the Blue-Cloud framework, enabling researchers to find, access, share, combine and reuse quality data across disciplines and countries.&lt;br&gt;
The federation is taking place at the levels of (meta)data resources, computing resources and analytical service resources, driven by collaboration across research, data and e-infrastructures. A Blue-Cloud Data Discovery and Access Service (DDAS) is being developed to facilitate access to multi-disciplinary datasets. A Blue Cloud-Virtual Research Environment (VRE) has been established to enable collaborative research, allowing users to share analytical processes and resulting outputs, including data products and services for specific applications.&lt;br&gt;
This innovation potential is explored and unlocked by five real-life demonstrators addressing societal challenges in the domains of genomics, fishery, aquaculture, biodiversity and environment. The demonstrators are showcasing how Blue-Cloud can enhance collaborative research in support of the EU Green Deal and key international initiatives, such as the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.&lt;br&gt;
In addition, Blue-Cloud is developing a Strategic Roadmap to 2030 in collaboration with the wider marine science &amp;amp; research community, as a policy document guiding the evolution of Blue-Cloud into the future aligning with wider developments, such as EOSC and initiatives related to the EU Digital Strategy e.g. the pilot Digital Twin of the Ocean and Destination Earth.&lt;br&gt;
The presentation describes the vision and overarching technical framework of Blue-Cloud and the project&amp;rsquo;s role in supporting EOSC and the uptake of Open Science principles across the marine research community.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
