Brief description

ESCAPE (European Science Cluster of Astronomy & Particle physics ESFRI research infrastructures) is a cloud for research data in Europe allowing for universal access to data through a single online platform. Since data should be accessible to the growing scientific communities as they collaborate and interact, EOSC federates existing resources across national data centres, e-infrastructures and research infrastructures allowing researchers and citizens to access and re-use data produced by other scientists. The ESCAPE project brings together partners from astronomy and particle physics to collaborate on building the EOSC.

Our role

Trust-IT brings its expertise, participating in the activities of engagement and communication, which consist of: 

  • Establish and execute a dissemination and exploitation plan, while building the ESCAPE community;
  • Generate standard branding and public engagement materials for ESCAPE (press communications, interviews, flyers, posters, videos, etc). A dynamic presentation video was produced recently to promote ESCAPE, along with many other communication materials which were distributed and presented at worldwide third-party events;
  • Create a project website and portal for internal coordination, and internal and external dissemination of ESCAPE results;
  • Support attendance at high-level events and meetings where ESCAPE results can be showcased to external stakeholders;
  • Support test mass participation experiments in face-to-face classroom settings.

Trust-IT is also developing a “Virtual Research Environment interface development support”, an user interface to put together all ESCAPE services components which are being developed by ESCAPE work packages. Plus, Trust-IT is building synergies with industries and SMEs especially in the field of data science to address innovation and development aspects of the project.
