Frictionless Data Exchange

6 views

Published on

This presentation was given as part of the EOSC Stakeholders Forum Scientific Community Workshop which gives the opportunity to prospective consumers and providers - from both the public and commercial sectors - to discuss needs and opportunities that should drive the definition of the EOSC service portfolio roadmap. This workshop aims to answer the following:

- What prospective needs and priorities do scientific communities have as consumers of the EOSC?
- How should EOSC facilitate the sharing of data, scientific outputs and services across national and organisational borders?

The workshop starts with a presentation of today’s state of play in federating resources and services to enable multi-disciplinary science and transnational access; it featured invited talks from representatives of digital infrastructures, research projects and communities and the long-tail of science. The workshop also involved representatives from both public and commercial organisations in their role as a service provider and service consumer. The workshop participants also took the opportunity to define a list of recommendations giving direction to the development and provisioning of the EOSC portfolio.

Frictionless Data Exchange

  1. 1. Frictionless Data Exchange - Petr Knoth, Open University 1www.eoscpilot.eu The European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot project is funded by the European Commission, DG Research & Innovation under contract no. 739563
  2. 2. The Science Challenge 2www.eoscpilot.eu The European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot project is funded by the European Commission, DG Research & Innovation under contract no. 739563 ● A single scientific repository is of limited value ● Real benefits come from ability to exchange data within a network ● Current technology for exchanging data across repositories (OAI-PMH) more than 15 years old ○ Scalability ○ Implementations inconsistency ○ Metadata synchronisation only
  3. 3. The Science Demonstrator 3www.eoscpilot.eu The European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot project is funded by the European Commission, DG Research & Innovation under contract no. 739563 ● Assess how scientific resources can be effectively, regularly and reliably exchanged across systems using the ResourceSync protocol. ● Conduct a set of experiments/benchmarks comparing OAI-PMH with ResourceSync along a set of dimensions, scenarios and implementation setups. ○ different repository platforms, over 1k repository systems, variety of configurations and scenarios ○ quantitative benchmark and case for adoption of ResourceSync.
  4. 4. Challenges 4www.eoscpilot.eu The European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot project is funded by the European Commission, DG Research & Innovation under contract no. 739563 ● Guidelines for adoption (EOSC/domain specialists) ● Knowledge and skills gap between between technologists who implement repositories and those who manage it
  5. 5. Lessons Learned 5www.eoscpilot.eu The European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot project is funded by the European Commission, DG Research & Innovation under contract no. 739563 ● Tested approach widely applicable and with clear benefits over currently used technology. ● Recommend ResourceSync as a default data and metadata exchange protocol for all repositories operating within EOSC. ● Need a communication channel to work with WP6 Interoperability (and others) to communicate results and decide next steps.
