As part of its preparations for the next phase of its common data services, EUDAT has set up Working Groups to discuss topics which were earlier identified and prioritized while engaging and discussing the needs and requirements from communities and individual users:

  • Common services in the area of Dynamic Data, addressing real-time data such as data produced by remotely connected field sensors and massive crowdsourcing data generated via mobile devices;
  • Common services in the area of Workflow Support supporting researchers who need to orchestrate data processing chains and execute them on computers close to where their data is located;
  • Common services in the area of Semantics allowing researchers, for example, to check the correctness of incoming data against trusted ontologies and semantically annotate the data; and,
  • Policies regarding Data Access and Reuse at community and service provider levels.

If you are interested to become a member of one the Working Groups, or wish to receive additional information on a specific group, please send your request to the following contact persons:
