ENVRI-FAIR, a new H2020 project supporting the collaboration of environmental and Earth system research infrastructures has been launched on 1st of January.
ENVRI-FAIR is the connection of the Cluster of Environmental Research Infrastructures (ENVRI) to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). It is a four-year project running from January 2019 until December 2022.
The overarching goal is that at the end of the proposed project, all participating RIs have built a set of FAIR data services which enhances the efficiency and productivity of researchers, supports innovation, enables data- and knowledge-based decisions and connects the ENVRI Cluster to the EOSC.
This goal is reached by:
(1) well defined community policies and standards on all steps of the data life cycle, aligned with the wider European policies, as well as with international developments;
(2) each participating RI will have sustainable, transparent and auditable data services, for each step of data life cycle, compliant to the FAIR principles;
(3) the focus of the proposed work is put on the implementation of prototypes for testing pre-production services at each RI; the catalogue of prepared services is defined for each RI independently, depending on the maturity of the involved RIs;
(4) the complete set of thematic data services and tools provided by the ENVRI cluster is exposed under the EOSC catalogue of services via EOSC-hub.

The project will be officially kicked-off during its first meeting in Prague from 14th till 16th of January, 2019. More details here
