European Open Science Cloud

These days, there is a lot of European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) in the air. There are symposia, projects related to EOSC (EOSC-hub, SSHOC, and EOSC Future to name a few), the EOSC Association and funding calls aimed at the enabling if an operational, open and FAIR EOSC ecosystem (INFRAEOSC, a part of the Horizon Europe Research Infrastructures work programme). 

But what is it really about? How can you use it? And how does EOSC relate to CLARIN? Here, we group the information into a selection of topics. You can also watch a video that shows how readily available CLARIN services and datasets that have been integrated into EOSC are.


CLARIN Services in the EOSC

‌Learn more and try it

This video shows how many language processing services, both from CLARIN centres and other providers, are just a click away. These thematic services can be applied to the thousands of digitised language resources that are accessible online. The CLARIN infrastructure helps discover the resources and connects these data sets and tools. In this model of service federation all CLARIN nodes are working together on the European Open Science Cloud!


CLARIN at the Launch of the EOSC Portal

The video demonstration below of the EOSC Portal using CLARIN data and thematic services was presented at the EOSC launch event on 23 November 2018 in Vienna. It gives a good insight in how CLARIN – together with other research infrastructures – is shaping the EOSC.


CLARIN's Involvement in EOSC and EOSC-Related Projects

In June 2017, CLARIN ERIC signed the EOSC Declaration, as member of a coalition of 'doers'.  As of 2020 CLARIN ERIC is a member of the EOSC Association.

Over the past years CLARIN has joined some of the H2020 projects aimed at the further development of EOSC:

  • CLARIN is participating in the project EOSC Future (2021-2023)
  • CLARIN participated in the project EOSC-hub (2018-2021). Find out more:
  • As of 2019, the project 'Social Sciences and Humanities Open Cloud' (SSHOC) has provided an important vehicle for the collaboration between the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) research infrastructures as a science (or thematic) cluster in the context of the emerging EOSC ecosystem. Find out more:
    • about CLARIN's role in SSHOC in the SSHOC factsheet
    • about the common platform where the thematic services from and for SSH domain can be registered: SSH Open Marketplace
    • about the position of SSHOC and the other science clusters on the future of EOSC: position paper.
