The EOSC-hub project has significantly contributed to the building of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), a single contact point for European researchers and innovators to discover, access, use and reuse a broad spectrum of resources for data-driven research.
The nine Key Exploitable Results of EOSC-hub are:
- EOSC Portal and Marketplace - support the service discovery and access in EOSC;
- EOSC Service Management System (SMS) - system that allow to plan, deliver, operate and control services offered to customers;
- EOSC Rules of Participation (RoP) - a comprehensive and coherent set of rules and policies for service providers to onboard services and make them discoverable and accessible through the EOSC Portal;
- Internal Services in the Hub Portfolio - provide basic enabling services for EOSC access and operation;
- External Services in the EOSC Service Portfolio - EOSC provides a "one-stop-shop" for a range of services and solutions to speed up the research process of the disciplines and enable cross-disciplinary collaboration and reuse of tools and results;
- Business and sustainability models for services and the Hub crucial for long-term planning of EOSC;
- EOSC Digital Innovation Hub (DIH) - platform for Industrial collaborations with EOSC;
- Interoperability and Integration guidelines - defining the high-level architecture for basic EOSC technical functions and promoting EOSC standards;
- The training courses and material encompass a large variety of project results.

Project EOSC-hub (Integrating and managing services for the European Open Science Cloud) started on January 1st 2018, bringing together an extensive group of national and international service providers to create the Hub: a central contact point for European researchers and innovators to discover, access, use and reuse a broad spectrum of resources for advanced data-driven research. The consortium of 100 partners from more than 50 countries will develop the vision of the Hub as the integration and management system of the future European Open Science Cloud. The EOSC-hub project mobilises providers from the EGI Federation, EUDAT CDI, INDIGO-DataCloud and other major European research infrastructures to deliver a common catalogue of research data, services and software for research.
SRCE, as a partner in the project, participated in the development of common elements and user-driven services, especially in the further development, integration and maintenance of central infrastructure and collaboration services.
