EOSC-Life brings together the 13 Life Science ‘ESFRI’ research infrastructures (LS RIs) to create an open, digital and collaborative space for biological and medical research. The project will publish ‘FAIR’ data and a catalogue of services provided by participating RIs for the management, storage and reuse of data in the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). This space will be accessible to European research communities.

EOSC-Life will make data resources from LS RIs ‘FAIR’ and publish them in the EOSC following guidelines and standards. Overall, this will drive the evolution of the RI repository infrastructure for EOSC and integration of the LS RI repositories. EOSC-Life will implement workflows that cross disciplines and address the needs of interdisciplinary science. Through open hackathons and bring-your-own-data events we will co-create EOSC-Life with our user communities, providing a blueprint for how the EOSC supports wide-spread and excellent data-driven life science research. EOSC-Life will address the data policies needed for human research data under GDPR. Interoperable provenance information will describe the history of the sample and data to ensure reproducibility and adherence to regulatory requirements.
Collaboration with ESCAPE: 
ESCAPE, along with EOSC-Life and the other ESFRI cluster projects (SSHOC, PANOSC and ENVRI-FAIR) 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
