Deep Hybrid Data Cloud in a project that supports intensive computing techniques (ML/DL) that require access to specialized HPC hardware, like GPUs or low-latency interconnects, to explore very large datasets.

EOSC-DIH and DEEP-Hybrid-DataCloud (DEEP) have entered into a collaboration agreement aiming to foster their adoption by SMEs, undertake dissemination of new offerings, and collaborate on business pilots. Specifically, the collaboration agreement forsees the following goals to achieve:

  • To disseminate the following DEEP-Hybrid Data Cloud services throught their inclusion into the EOSC DIH offering, fostering their adoption by SMEs:

– ML application porting to EOSC technological infrastructure

– ML implementation best practices

– AI-enabled services prototyping in EOSC landscape

  •  To identify SMEs interested in such an offer and set up a business pilot
  • To disseminate the new offer through EOSC DIH channels
  • To redirect existing and future SME collaborations through the EOSC DIH channel
  • To find providers willing to support the business pilot and DEEP services through the EOSH DIH.

Collaboration Partnership between EOSC DIH & CloudSME

CloudSME was created to provide vendor independent cloud technology to support sustainable growth and digitalization within Europe as well as to increase its competitiveness in the worldwide economy.

EOSC-DIH and CloudSME have started a collaboration to support each other in undertaking dissemination of their business opportunities and uptaking new business pilots. Some of the possible collaborations are aligned with:

  • Introduce the MiCADO tool as framework that supports automated scalability of a large variety of applications in the EOSC Marketplace.
  • EOSC DIH could support CloudSME in the visibility from an operational point of view (not technical support /integration)
  • CloudSME could provide information about the DIH services to research collaborators, Cloudifacturing and COLA projects and their stakeholders.
  • In general, explore possible collaborations between the parties to promote the visibility of them in both research and commercial markets and to participate in H2020 proposals.
  • EOSC could support cloudME at the uptake of business relevant relations.

Collaboration Partnership between EOSC DIH & OpenAire

OpenAIRE is a network of Open Access repositories, archives and journals that support Open Access policies. It goes beyond the traditional publications aggregator by interconnecting entities related to scholarly communication (publications, research data, funding, people, organizations, data sources) allowing users to navigate alongside a rich information space graph and provides a wide range of services, from deposition to statistics.

EOSC-DIH and OpenAire have started a collaboration aiming to include OpenAire services in the EOSC DIH offerings fostering their joint adoption by SMEs. Specifically, the collaboration agreement foresees the following objectives:

  • Identify SMEs interested in a combined offer and setup business pilot
  • Include the following OpenAIRE services into the EOSC DIH offering, fostering their adoption by SMEs:

– OpenAIRE Research Graph: for access to the whole graph collection, inclusive of 110Mi publications, 10Mi datasets, 180K software, and 7.5Mi other products, interlinked between them and with research projects from 28 funders.

– OpenAIRE Scholexplorer: for efficient access to resolution of article-dataset links.

  • Promote partnership and new offers
  • Redirect existing and future SME collaborations through the EOSC DIH channel.

Collaboration Partnership between EOSC DIH and SoBigData

SoBigData is the European Research Infrastructure for Big Data and Social Mining. From data to knowledge, investigating stories ethically, paying attention to citizens privacy.

Through the SoBigData++ support project, and within a dedicated activity on Accelerating Innovation, the partnership with the EOSC DIH serves to:

  • Expand the SoBigData industrial and institutional network
  • Develop joint business pilots
  • Exchange speaking engagements to industrial events organized
  • Offer opportunities through SoBigData ‘Challenge Us’ Programme for exploitation of competences and skills
  • Exchange knowledge to and from the SoBigData Industrial Board
  • Reciprocate dissemination and promotional activities and results

Collaboration Partnership between EOSC DIH & EOSC-synergy

EOSC-synergy is an European project coordinated by CSIC (Spain) in the IBERGRID framework that contributes to the European Open Science Cloud landscape by expanding the capabilities and adoption of EOSC services at the National level in the countries participating in the consortium: Portugal, Spain, UK, Netherlands, Poland, Germany, Slovakia and Check Republic.

Thematic services and training initiatives deployed in EOSC Synergy are susceptible to be integrated as innovation activities through the experiments or pilots developed in the EOSC DIH. The objective of this partnership is to explore the ways of collaboration to maximize the impact of the EOSC services offered by both initiatives and promote the innovation and exploitation of the main results. 

The following activities will be carried out:

  • Explore the exploitation of research data and services with a clear industrial exploitation path, from the EOSC Synergy thematic services,  considering different business models to be applied. 

  • Analyse the adoption and integration of EOSC Synergy training tools, specifically the Hackathon as a Service (HaaS), under the Training and support service of the EOSC DIH. This would increase the skill development service provided by the EOSC DIH while maximizing the visibility of the Key Exploitable Results of the EOSC Synergy in a commercial environment. 

  • Reciprocate dissemination and promotional activities and results

Collaboration Partnership between EOSC DIH & EU-ToxRisk and Edelweiss Connection

EU-ToxRisk is an Integrated European ‘Flagship’ Programme Driving Mechanism-based Toxicity Testing and Risk Assessment for the 21st century. The vision of EU-ToxRisk is to drive the required paradigm shift in toxicological testing away from ‘black box’ animal testing towards a toxicological assessment based on human cell responses and a comprehensive mechanistic understanding of cause-consequence relationships of chemical adverse effects. 

Edelweiss Connect (EwC, previously known as Douglas Connect and renamed from February 2019) is a Swiss SME located in Basel, specialised in developing and implementing integrated scientific and technology solutions for industrial use and regulatory acceptance in areas of significant societal and market impact. EwC has extensive experience in scientific research and innovation integrating data, in silico and in vitro methods and related infrastructure into solutions, and has been involved in organising scientific, technical and knowledge management solution development projects since 2008 Edelweiss Connect provides the expertise and experience to initiate, coordinate and manage large collaborative research projects, with partners from industry, government and academia. Its goal is to incubate high impact products, services and startup companies at the forefront of innovation, with sustainability and responsibility. 

EOSC-DIH and EU-ToxRisk have started a collaboration that foresees the following objectives:

  • Explore and facilitate the inclusion of EU-ToxRisk services in the EOSC Marketplace. 

  • Identify, develop and run a pilot through the EOSC DIH.

  • EOSC DIH and EU-ToxRisk will work together on identifying the EU-ToxRisk services that could extend the EOSC DIH portfolio. This will allow EUToxRISK to further improve their exploitation capabilities, while also enriching EOSC DIH offers.

  • Conduct joint promotion of the partnership through existing dissemination channels, offer opportunities to participate in key events, as well as publish results in print/online material and potentially in the EOSC Portal. They will also investigate further collaboration ideas and common possible initiatives and projects.
