The impact of the EGI Federation is broad and diverse. We support all kinds of research. Examples include finding new tools to diagnose and monitor diseases such as Alzheimer’s, developing complex simulations to model climate change, searching for gravitational waves, and pursuing the dark matter.

We continuously innovate our services and technology, foster international collaborations and knowledge sharing, and finally, create opportunities for professional development and acquiring know-how.

EGI and EOSC

EGI supports a Web of FAIR Data and services for science in Europe

European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is an environment for hosting and processing research data to support EU science.

The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC)  initiative will offer researchers a virtual environment with open and seamless services for storage, management, analysis and re-use of research data, across borders and scientific disciplines by federating existing data infrastructures. EOSC is being co-created in a series of funded projects and initiatives from member states and associated countries. The services and expertise of the EGI Federation are being recognized as key assets for the EOSC, especially for the Federating Core.
