EUDAT keeps engaging communities: All you need to know on the EUDAT data pilots

Primary tabs

One of EUDAT’s main ambitions is to bridge the gap between research infrastructures and e-Infrastructures through an active engagement strategy. EUDAT is privileged to have close and collaborative relations with its long-standing partner communities. At present, there are seven core communities – CLARIN, ELIXIR, ENES, EPOS, ICOS, LTER Europe and VPH in the consortium covering the Social Sciences & Humanities, Earth sciences, energy and environment, Biomedical and life sciences disciplines. Experience shows that actively involving user communities in all steps is a must for infrastructure projects, and increases the likelihood of broader uptake of  developed services.

EUDAT regularly expands its horizons and renews and adds to the list of communities it works with. EUDAT invests in finding new communities and discusses their ideas and needs for research data management and supports them to solve their problems. In this respect EUDAT is very satisfied that the last call for Data Pilots was very successful in bringing in pilots from a large variety of disciplines and organizations:
