Support to policy development and programme implementation

The aim is to reinforce cooperation with the USA in jointly addressing global scientific challenges through interoperable research infrastructures across the Atlantic. The emphasis will be on scientific data management issues [...] and promote interoperable e-Infrastructures services for scientific data (topic 3.2).

Expected impact

  • To strengthen the development of a consistent and dynamic European policy for research infrastructures including the data produced by this infrastructure.
  • Help to address specific needs of international cooperation in the field of scientific data management, thus achieving critical mass and driving global policies.
  • Bilateral collaborations would speed up the development of a common vision for the next decades, identifying existing gaps and creating the opportunities to better face global challenges.
  • Will contribute to the Innovation Union commitment to step up European Union cooperation on the roll-out of the global research infrastructures.

International cooperation with the USA on common e-Infrastructure for scientific data

The objective is to establish an EU/USA coordination platform aiming at full interoperability of scientific data infrastructures

Coordination will be demonstrated through several joint EU/USA prototypes that would ensure persistent availability and effective sharing of data across scientific domains, organisations and national boundaries.

The platform should provide for:

  1. Collection of requirements and approaches for standardisation
  2. Common ICT infrastructure approaches in order to lower access barriers
  3. Harmonisation of intellectual property frameworks for scientific information
  4. Mechanisms for international networking of experts and multidisciplinary communities

The joint prototypes should leverage and build upon similar initiatives in Europe and USA.

The proposal should clearly describe synergies and collaboration with corresponding existing or potential NSF-funded initiatives.

The Integrated Infrastructure Initiative (I3) model

Networking activities: To foster a culture of co-operation between the participants in the project and the scientific communities benefiting from the research infrastructures and to help develop a more efficient and attractive European Research Area. Networking activities may include
  • Joint management of access provision and pooling of distributed resources
  • Dissemination and/or exploitation of project results and knowledge, outreach toward industry...
  • Definition of common standards, protocols and interoperability
  • Development and maintenance of common databases for the purposes of networking
