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.
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.
