Brief description

The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is an ecosystem of research data and related services that will enable and enhance seamless access to and reliable re-use of FAIR research outputs (including data, publications, software, etc.).

One of the priorities highlighted in the EOSC Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda is the establishment of the Web of FAIR data and a Minimum Viable EOSC by 2027, featuring the core components and functions to enable EOSC to operate (the EOSC-Core).

The FAIRCORE4EOSC project focuses on the development and realisation of nine new EOSC-Core components supporting a FAIR EOSC, addressing gaps identified in the SRIA. These components aim to improve the discoverability and interoperability of an increased amount of research outputs.

Our role

Trust-IT takes part in the Work Package on Early Adoption, Dissemination, Outreach and Exploitation, specifically by leading two key tasks:

  • Dissemination and adoption; in which we stimulate the uptake of components in new domains, by organising dedicated workshops also in collaboration with the FAIR-IMPACT project. Trust-IT also coordinates the creation of case study user stories and videos, to easily explain the practical benefits of the FAIRCORE4EOSC components for research communities.
  • Stakeholder engagement; this task contains the overall communication and dissemination plan, as well as key outputs such as the project website, the management of its social media and other public channels. Trust-IT also coordinates the project’s participation in external events, conferences, and fairs.



FAIRCORE4EOSC delivers new EOSC-Core components in support of a FAIR research life cycle. More specifically, the delivered components enable an EOSC PID infrastructure, an EOSC research software infrastructure, support for sharing and access to metadata schemas and crosswalks and offer advanced research-intent driven discovery services overall EOSC repositories.

These components will support European researchers and research communities to make their datasets findable in EOSC; to easily discover research outputs and facilitate their cross-discipline reuse. FAIRCORE4EOSC will also produce and share its publications, data, software/source code and services according to Open Access and FAIRness principles and in respect of the EOSC Interoperability Framework.
