Service enabling digital sovereignty in policy making processes and effectively increasing both open access and human capital.
The Science Mesh would be a crucial part of the European Open Science Cloud, which has been a grand initiative by the EU.
Dialogue has already started to ensure that the mesh is integrated in the EOSC hub. FAIR refers to the principles espoused by the policy makers to ensure that the data and the tools to analyse them are findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (Wilkinson et al. 2016). With the increasing volume and complexity of data generated by the scientific community, these principles are necessary to improve the findability of existing data, ease the access to data at scale and allow reuse of data (Wise et al. 2019). The most promising impact of FAIR is enabling computational systems to take existing data and find new uses with minimal human intervention. Despite its ambitious promises, transitioning to FAIR data is not straightforward. Thus, by providing the infrastructure to enable FAIR data, it would be easier for scientists to produce research that would address grand societal challenges
Inefficiencies caused by research output not being reused
Get to know standardised tools that facilitate researchers collaboration, while making FAIR data part of day-to-day research.
Streamline participation of commercial stakeholders from CS3 community to the EOSC.
The research community to have a tool that allows them to produce research data that will support policy environment.
Finally, policy makers and citizens will benefit from a service enabling digital sovereignty in policy making processes and effectively increasing both open access and human capital.
The complete engagement of policy makers and citizens constitutes a long-term communication and involvement process that will continue also after the project ends.
With Science Mesh it would be easier for scientists to produce research that would address grand societal challenges.
