OpenAIRE Nexus - D7.1 Integration opportunities with awarded proposals in INFRAEOSC-07 v1.0

  • 1. CNR
  • 2. OpenAIRE AMKE


The specific challenge of the topic “Increasing the service offer of the EOSC Portal” (INFRAEOSC-07-2020) is to grow the offering available in the EOSC portal with state-of-the-art research enabling services useful to diverse thematic research communities for embracing Open Science practicesat the different stages of their research workflows.The five awarded projects C-SCALE, DICE, EGI-ACE, OpenAIRE-Nexus and RELIANCE contribute to this objective also thanks to a strong collaboration, which was made official with a multi-lateral agreement signed by the five projects and EOSC-Future. The projects collaborate on a set of topics: technical interoperability and integration, joint outreach and dissemination activities, training activities.Focusing on technical interoperability and integration ofservices, we highlight the following collaboration opportunities:

•EOSC Interoperability Framework (IF): the projects will collaborate to the definition and implementation of the EOSC IF by:

  • Mutually participating to EOSC Future WP3 Working Groups. In particular, members of each project participate to the WG on “Research Product Publishing Framework” led by OpenAIRE-Nexus; while members of OpenAIRE-Nexus participate to the WG on “Compute Continuum” led by EGI-ACE.
  • Identifying use cases that requires integration between services and data provided by the different projects to be effectively implemented

•EOSC Exchange: the projects will onboard their research products into the OpenAIRE Research Graph and OpenAIRE-Nexus will extend its model to represent peculiarities of new types of objects, like RO-Crate from RELIANCE and Jupyter Notebooks from EGI-ACE, and their compatibility with services capable of processing them.The projects also collaborate to support the implementation of the EOSC Future Science Projects of the thematic clusters ESCAPE, PaNOSC, SHOCC, EOSC-Life, ENVRI-FAIR. OpenAIRE-Nexus, in addition to support all clusters at onboarding their research products in the OpenAIRE Research Graph, coordinates the execution of the EOSC-Life science projects in collaboration with RELIANCE, and the PaNOSC Science projects in collaboration with EGI-ACE.
