Shaping the EOSC Portal - future vision for EOSC Hub

  1. 1. Shaping the EOSC Portal A vision building on current initiatives Alasdair Reid, European Future Innovation System (EFIS) Centre Malaga 16 April 2018
  2. 2. Contents • The EOSC Portal - policy context and vision • EOSC Hub - contribution to the portal development • OpenAIRE - contribution to the portal development • eInfraCentral - contribution to the portal development • EOSC Portal - core elements and personas • Next steps actions during 2018 15/03/2018 2eInfraCentral/EOSC-HUB/OpenAIRE-Advance
  3. 3. Policy context - Implementation roadmap for the EOSC (March 2018) • Foresees developing the initial shared resources around the EOSC Portal and a catalogue of data infrastructures and services. • EOSC-hub, eInfraCentral and OpenAIRE-Advance projects identified as key building blocks for Portal • Services provided under the EOSC should made accessible via the EOSC portal - building on the work of the EOSC-hub and eInfraCentral projects • EOSC Portal as a universal entry point for all potential users - with a full-fledged user interface supported by the common platform. 3
  4. 4. A long term vision The EOSC portal is an engagement channel towards the EOSC stakeholders and a gateway to resources and services that support the EOSC actors “Facilitate wide, user-friendly and cross-disciplinary access to the data and services of the EOSC through the development of the necessary interfaces. The EOSC aims to offer a trusted and open environment for research users of all scientific disciplines across the whole lifecycle of scientific data. This requires concrete solutions to address the current fragmentation of entry points” [H2020 INFRAEOSC-06] 4EOSC-Hub/OpenAIRE-Advance/eInfraCentral

  7. 7. EOSC-hub: developments by Spring 2019 Related Project Milestones: • June 2018: Catalogue published online; Marketplace allows to order baseline services from EOSC-hub service catalogue; • August 2018: 21 thematic services from Virtual Research Communities 15/03/2018 7EOSC-HUB/OpenAire-Advance/eInfraCentral Current plan: • Enable personalized view for different type of users • Automated tool for portfolio management for services providers • Support set of compatible services • e.g. domain application + VM instance + co-located storage • Prepare EOSC service certification bases • Further improve user experience based on users profiles • Provide “my active services” view for customers and user Possible revised plan for collaboration: • Design UX strategy for whole EOSC Portal • Result should be basis for implementation in longer term • Integrate EIC API into the EOSChub MP • Technical feasibility study done • Provide extended version of EIC specs & API for better description of services
  8. 8. eInfraCentral progress to date 1st version of service description template and description of services of 5 e-infra partners May 2017 Service catalogue requirements & portal specifications approved September 2017 Beta version of portal populated with compilation of 70+ services from the five major e-infrastructures November 2017 Outreach to second tier of e-infrastructure projects for inclusion of services in portal First version of API for the automatic exchange of service related information February 2018 Consensus on service classification & representation Core set of service level targets and performance information agreed March 2018 eInfraCentral has devised a service gateway architecture to collect service descriptions and related data through registration and harvesting methods, is aggregating those service offerings and is providing a uniform service catalogue at the eInfraCentral gateway employing formal and standardised guidelines, a service description template and an application programming interfaces (APIs) to continuously provide up-to-date information to end-users.
  9. 9. eInfraCentral - developments to expect by spring 2019 • April 2019 - eInfraCentral EOSC vision paper (D2.2) will explore the role and functions of eInfraCentral in EOSC development and linkages with related projects and initiatives. • April 2019 – Guidelines for schema representation and APIs (D.3.3) (for service providers to upload/update services, etc.) • On-going to end of project – population and validation of service catalogue and performance data – existing catalogued services and new service providers • Ongoing to end of project – UX redesign of portal and enhanced functionality – development of service catalogue dashboard, etc. • Two events to organise could be used to support EOSC portal design discussions : Partnering event (October/November) – Public Portal launch (spring 2019).
