Providing an open collaborative space for digital biology in Europe

EOSC-Life brings together the 13 Biological and Medical ESFRI (European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures) organisations, 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 Research Infrastructures (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.

The Health Data team contributes in charge and substantially to the cloud work package of EOSC-Life that is co-coordinated by Christian Lawerenz and Steven Newhouse (EMBL-EBI).

The de.NBI Cloud federation of the universities of Bielefeld, Freiburg, Heidelberg and Tübingen, the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) and the Charité are contributing significantly to the academic cloud resources of EOSC-Life. de.NBI Cloud offers a powerful IT infrastructure for storage and computing in combination with flexible bioinformatic workflows and analysis tools for the life science community in Germany.

Furthermore, we are involved in various cloud tasks. This includes working on the provision of resources for EOSC users, LifeScience AAI, platform and appliances development. We are involved in the cloud deployment services and aid to provide a set of integrated cloud based FAIR RI resources, workflows, and science demonstrators that are being supported within the project. Through the provided cloud resources, we aim to promote the implementation and adoption of cloud interoperability standards to ensure EOSC cloud providers are compatible with life-science services and with each other.

*Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Re-usable
