How is Science Mesh Unlocking Scientific Collaboration? – A Podcast with Guido Aben from CS3MESH4EOSC and AARNet

CS3MESH4EOSC is kicking off its Podcast series with its very first episode, entitled “Science Mesh - Unlocking Scientific Collaboration Through a Sync and Share Interoperable Platform”, focused on the Science Mesh - a core initiative of the CS3MESH4EOSC project, which is connecting European Data within Europe and beyond.




TNC21, GÉANT’s flagship event, is the largest and most prestigious Research & Education networking conference. TNC presents participants with a unique overview of the latest developments in research networking, both in the technical field and in the area of application and management.

Too easy and fair enough?


Too easy and fair enough? - Blogpost from Adam Bell (AARNet) for the Digital Preservation Coalition

The role of the Science Mesh is to provide inherently findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR) cloud data storage and collaboration tools for researchers. The outcome is for interoperable research workspaces, data movement and management between research organisations. The work package to deliver this FAIR data capability for the Science Mesh is executed by Australian, Polish and German developers, and is project managed by AARNet.

EOSC Symposium 2021


EOSC Symposium 2021

The European Open Science Cloud has finally entered its highly-anticipated implementation phase. The EOSC Symposium will provide a key engagement opportunity for the EOSC community. The foundation of the EOSC Association in 2020 is a key element of the implementation phase (2021-2027). Building on the EOSC SRIA, the Association will establish a number of Advisory Groups and Task Forces by June. These will focus on priority areas as we enter into the implementation phase.
