Cloud Services for Synchronization and Sharing (CS3) have been widely deployed in the research and educational space, mostly by e-infrastructure providers, NRENs (National Research & Education Networks) and major research institutions. These services, usually in daily workflows for hundreds of thousands of users (including researchers, students, scientists and engineers) remain largely disconnected, and they are developed and deployed in isolation from each other.
Combining these various systems and services would boost open-science by presenting a joint, coordinated service to the users in the research and education space at a pan-European level. CS3MESH4EOSC focuses on this major technical, but especially societal challenge.
CS3MESH4EOSC - Interactive and agile sharing mesh of storage, data and applications for EOSC - aims to create an interoperable federation of data and higher-level services to enable friction-free collaboration between European researchers.
CS3MESH4EOSC will connect locally and individually provided services, and scale them up at the European level and beyond, with the promise of reaching critical mass and brand recognition among European scientists that are not usually engaged with specialist eInfrastructures.
Science Mesh - CS3MESH4EOSC main asset
CS3MESH4EOSC will provide a Pan-European natively FAIR and GDPR compliant data storage and sharing fabric. Science Mesh, the main asset of the project, provides an interoperable platform to easily
These services are independent from the specific field of work of the researchers, thus enabling
The added-value for the stakeholders of CS3MESH4EOSC is constituted by the possibility for them to contribute in developing application plugins or easily set-up federation
