EUDAT invites pan-European or multi-national research communities and research infrastructures to test, integrate and/or further develop, in close collaboration with the EUDAT consortium, one or multiple components of the EUDAT service suite through concrete data collaboration pilots. EUDAT offers data management solutions, storage resources, and consortium expertise to:
- support multi-national research communities and research infrastructures to identify solutions to their data challenges in close collaboration with EUDAT
- work with and support global research data standardization of initiatives such as RDA, and
- further develop existing EUDAT services & identify new ones
Data deposited onto EUDAT resources will be available through different interfaces, including GridFTP and HTTP, and maintained as near as possible to processing facilities required by the community, to facilitate further usage and transmission. In addition EUDAT offers training and consultancy services to support the data pilot teams, visibility and storage resources. Pilots can avail of EUDAT data storage for from the start of the pilot, free of charge, and up to 5PB in total at one, or several, of the 13 EUDAT sites. EUDAT will match all effort with a corresponding amount (1 PM Pilot Team = 1 PM EUDAT). EUDAT will promote and disseminate the data pilots to a broad range of stakeholders offering considerable visibility opportunities. Applications that include uptake / use of Research Data Alliance (RDA) outputs will be favourably viewed.
