ExPaNDS and PaNOSC position paper on EOSC

A communication following the SRIA consultation The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is Europe’s virtual environment for all researchers to store, manage, analyse and re-use data for research, innovation and educational purposes. It will give Europe a global lead to ensure that scientists reap the full benefits of data-driven science. The construction of EOSC started in 2015 and today, at the end of 2020, many … Continue reading ExPaNDS and PaNOSC position paper on EOSC

ExPaNDS FAIR workshops – 1st & 2nd October 2020

FAIR for facilities This first online workshop in a series of two aimed at instrument scientists and other facility staff provides an overview of FAIR – data that are findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable. We consider key questions related to the data facilities produce: What is FAIR? What’s the difference between FAIR and Open? What are the benefits of FAIR for the photon and neutron … Continue reading ExPaNDS FAIR workshops – 1st & 2nd October 2020

The benefits of Open Data

ExPaNDS, alongside the Photon and Neutron Open Science Cloud (PaNOSC) are European H2020 projects who are working towards the development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). The Photon and Neutron Research Infrastructures (PaN RIs) containing free electron laser, synchrotron light and neutron sources are generating petabytes of research data each year and such vast amounts of data can be hard to share. Researchers around … Continue reading The benefits of Open Data
