Newly launched research outcomes collection brings together 10 EOSC Future projects

16 May 2023

Major outputs - including their planning, implementation and the engagement of the relevant scientific community - from ten EOSC Future science projects are to be collated within the newly launched open-science collection, titled EOSC Future: Design and implementation of community engagement through Science Projects.

Collection editors Dr Christos Arvanitidis (LifeWatch ERIC, Hellenic Centre for Marine Research), Dr Ron Dekker (Technopolis Group), Dr Cristina Huertas Olivares (LifeWatch ERIC) and Dr Ana Mellado (LifeWatch ERIC, University of Granada) invite the entire EOSC Consortium to submit manuscripts for review.

The European Union has established the European Science Open Cloud (EOSC), as the “system of systems” infrastructure, where anyone can find data, analytical and other web services, publications, networks and any type or research products and outcomes to carry out their work.

In its turn, the EOSC Future initiative, which backs the ten science projects in question, aims to provide European researchers with an integrated environment for the discovery, access and execution of data, professionally provided services, and open research products.

According to the editorial article opening the collection, in the long-term, this shared and open environment, “will free the innovation potential of the interdisciplinary and cross-domain research, especially in the new generations of the scientists, and will finally create a turning point for the modern research practices and knowledge making, which in turn, can transform the European and global scientific communities into a new knowledge and innovation hubs.”

“Researchers from Europe and worldwide will be able to share, access, and analyse open and FAIR data, services, and research products or in general resources from various scientific domains, providing them with the opportunity to reproduce results or combine data and services for new, potentially cross-disciplinary research activities,” add the collection editors.

In particular, the ten science projects address a total of four scientific challenges:

  1. Climate change and its impact on the Earth system and society
  2. COVID-19 Pandemic - health, societies, and environment
  3. Science questions meet with e-infrastructures
  4. Upgrade cluster services to other domains


You can find more about the background of the initiatives, EOSC and the new project outcomes collection in the editorial article.


To have their paper considered for the collection, authors will need to select to Add document to collection in the beginning of their manuscript submission.

Once a paper successfully completes the peer review stage, it will proceed to publication straight away to avoid unnecessary delays in the spread and communication of scientific output.
