What if all European research could be made available to everyone, for free? How about making all scientific outcomes that EU taxpayers fund a common, shared resource that may fuel innovation from the public and private sector? Is it possible to connect all the dots in a way that will create a cloud for research data in Europe?
This is the vision behind the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), a trusted digital platform for the scientific community, providing seamless access to data and interoperable services that address the whole research data cycle.
The open science aficionados in food and agriculture have been among the early supporters of this vision.
