European Cloud Initiative

Last month, the European Commission presented its blueprint for the new European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). By reinforcing and interconnecting existing research infrastructure, the Commission plans to create the EOSC, a tool which will make it easier for researchers and innovators to access and re-use data, and will reduce the cost of data storage and high-performance analysis. Making research data openly available can help boost Europe’s competitiveness by benefitting start-ups, SMEs and data-driven innovation, including in the field of the chemical sciences. As of 2017, the EOSC will be opening up by default all scientific data produced by projects under Horizon 2020.
