The goal of the EOSC-Life project is to make sure that life scientists can find, access and integrate life-science data for analysis and reuse in academic and industrial research. In other words, the project strives to make data ‘FAIR’ (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) across Europe.
In this way, EOSC-Life will transform European life sciences by providing an open, continent-scale, collaborative and interdisciplinary environment for data science, based on FAIR data.
In addition, EOSC-Life will enable researchers to combine resources from multiple RIs for new research funded through open calls. Researchers can also receive support through the variety of additional services the project offers, including alignment with relevant standards and policies (GDPR, etc).
