ENVRI-FAIR connects the Environmental Research Infrastructure (ENVRI) community to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC)

Natural and anthropogenic factors lead to environmental changes on a scale ranging from local to global. Understanding and quantification of these changes is a necessary requirement for the development of mitigation and adaptation options, and for a fact-based decision making.
Reliable predictions of environmental change must be based on trustworthy, well-documented observations which capture the entire complexity of the Earth system and the manifold interactions between the atmosphere, the land and the ocean; encompassing impacts both from and onto life in all its forms.

The ambition of ENVRI-FAIR is to establish technical preconditions for the successful implementation of a virtual, federated machine-to-machine interface. This interface is called the ENVRI-hub – a one stop shop for access to environmental data and services provided by the contributing research infrastructures. Full integration of services across research infrastructures is continuously progressing within the ENVRI community, with a focus on environmental data and scientific research objectives.
Collaboration with ESCAPE: 
ESCAPE, along with ENVRI-FAIR and the other ESFRI cluster projects (SSHOC, PANOSC and EOSC-LIFE) meet periodically to join forces in facilitating access to research data for incorporation into EOSC by developing shared data management methodologies, new services, and technical solutions in collaboration with European infrastructures and other EOSC-related projects.
Expected Impact: 
Build a Test Science Case where research & software developers can practice their requirements “to create an EOSC powered system” to test, validate their needs in an open access, open data and a virtual access environment for Federating in Science
