ENVRI-FAIR brings together 14 environmental research infrastructures
37 partners from 13 EU countries work together to make the project a success
The project has started in January 2019 and will run until December 2022
Our work is organized in 12 work packages and will be documented in 80 deliverables
ENVRI-FAIR is the connection of the Cluster of Environmental Research Infrastructures (ENVRI) to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
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.
Natural and anthropogenic factors lead to environmental changes on a scale ranging from local to global.Understanding and quantification of these changes is a necessary requirement for the development ofmitigation and adaptation options, and importantly for fact-based decision making.
Reliable predictions of environmental change must be based on trustworthy, well-documented observations which capture the entire complexity of the earth system and the manifold interactions between the atmosphere,the land and the ocean; encompassing impacts both from and onto life in all its forms.
The ambition of ENVRI-FAIR is to establish technical preconditions for the successful implementation of a virtual, federated machine-to-machine interface. This interface is called the ENVRI-hub, and it will enable access to environmental data and services provided by the contributing ENVRIs.
Full integration of services across RIs (and their subdomains) is continuously progressing at ENVRIs, with a focus on environmental data and scientific research objectives.
