Making research services and resources available and widely usable across Europe is one of the main goals of realising EOSC. In this module we discuss what the federated structure, such as EOSC is, why it matters, and how it works.
By the end of this module, you will be able to:
Understand what a federated structure, such as the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is, why it matters, and how it works.
Identify the key aspects of IT service (resource) management in relation to the EOSC portal.
Understand the concept of resource integration into EOSC.
Distinguish between different steps of EOSC integration.
Are you a service provider or you simply want to learn more about EOSC and how to make services and resources available on the EOSC portal? Watch these three introductory video presentations by Matti Heikurinnen, Strategy and Innovation Officer at the EGI Foundation in the Netherlands and be up to date with the latest developments.
Part 1: EOSC as a federation (6 min)
In order to facilitate open science, EOSC needs to be a well-integrated federation. In other words, users should be able to find services in one place and trust them. Learn more by watching the video.
Part 2. Integrating services or resources into EOSC (4 min)
What is the difference between services and resources? What role does IT service (resource) management play in relation to the EOSC portal? Learn more by watching the video.
Part 3. Process for connecting resources into EOSC (5 min)
