Commission Announces the EOSC EU Node’s Web Presence

EOSC EU Node launch

The European Commission is pleased to announce the launch of the initial web presence of the EOSC EU Node, marking a significant step forward in advancing Open Science initiatives in Europe. 

The newly launched website, while primarily serving as an informational platform at this stage, lays the groundwork for the forthcoming dynamic web front-office of the EOSC EU Node, planned to be released in the autumn of 2024. Acting as a placeholder, this website seamlessly transitions and upholds the basic function of research object discovery which was previously facilitated by the EOSC Portal. 

Catering to researchers and citizen scientists in Europe, the EOSC EU Node is designed to streamline access to a diverse range of resource outputs including data, publications, software, and services spanning Europe's expansive research networks. Currently, users can explore the Resource Hub, which houses a collection of previously onboarded research objects, and familiarise themselves with the native services that the EOSC EU Node will deliver. The full suite of functionalities, encompassing core capabilities, infrastructure, and application services, will be unveiled in the forthcoming production release. 

At the same time, the EOSC EU Node also extends an invitation to scientific resource providers throughout Europe to contribute their valuable research outputs, whether they be data, software, services, or tools, in support of the overarching mission to foster Open Science. Contributors are also encouraged to engage in the Technology Forum, offering insights into the core capabilities of the EOSC EU Node. In the future, contributors will have the opportunity to leverage selected core capabilities "as a Service" or as a federating function. The complete set of core capabilities will be accessible upon the production release. 

As the EOSC EU Node continues to evolve, stakeholders are strongly encouraged to remain engaged and keep track of both future updates and opportunities to join us in shaping the future of Open Science within Europe. For more information and to stay informed, please visit EOSC EU Node website.
