Brief description

The CS3MESH4EOSC project, supported by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, by developing ScienceMesh, offers the researchers with a unique entry point allowing the users to control their remote datasets, exchange and publish data while becoming FAIR compatible and integrated with EOSC (European Open Science Cloud) at the same time. The project delivers the core of scientific and educational infrastructure for cloud storage services in Europe. This approach supports the researchers throughout the entire lifecycle of discoveries from data collection to archival with a completely secure and compliant service for all European researchers.

Researchers and developers at pan-European level will be able not only to use ScienceMesh, but also to contribute to application plugins or easily set-up federations in their scope, thus developing their own activities on top of them. Researchers will access a global collaboration platform integrated into their current working environments and data collection or sharing will be available to everyone. Institutions and academia will gain the opportunity to choose different service providers without losing control over their data. Service managers and site administrators will take advantage of a well-documented environment for stable service operation at scale, thus being part of a large community of developers. The tech Industry in Europe and beyond will extend its current user base and ensure integration with the European Open Science Cloud ecosystem.

Our role

Trust-IT is leading Work Package 5 by designing and implementing the CS3MESH4EOSC Communication, Marketing and dissemination strategy for a pan-European roll out of the ScienceMesh. This will include specific marketing & communication campaigns for the promotion of the project results and stakeholder engagement activities to ensure awareness raising and involvement of early adopters and vendors within the ScienceMesh. TRUST-IT is also in charge of developing a new version of the project website and visual identity.


CS3MESH4EOSC will positively impact data sharing and collaboration in Europe by:

  • providing researchers a global collaboration platform which will be seamlessly integrated in their current working environments, which will be as well a platform for a thriving application ecosystem in EOSC;
  • empowering service providers in delivering state-of-the-art, connected infrastructure to boost effective scientific collaboration across the entire federation and data sharing;
  • delivering the core of a scientific and educational infrastructure for cloud storage services in Europe through a lightweight federation of existing sync/share services and integration with multidisciplinary application workflows;
  • making FAIR-abiding data archiving, sharing and publication available to all;
  • making collaboration with users and groups at other institutions seamless and accessible.

Onboarding your target communities to ensure uptake of research solutions requires a structured approach, deep analytical skills and the design and implementation of communication and engagement plans made up of a mix of techniques and tools.
