EOSC Future Funding Call: Optimising RDA Open Science Frameworks and Guidelines


The EU-funded EOSC Future project is pleased to announce, in partnership with the Research Data Alliance (RDA), a new call for proposals to demonstrate how RDA-developed data-sharing concepts and solutions can be reused, optimised, and implemented in the European Open Science Cloud. This call aims to support and encourage the adoption of existing RDA outputs and recommendations within the wider EOSC community.

Project proposals should:

  • demonstrate the use of RDA concepts and solutions in the EOSC context
  • have outputs that show an understanding of the needs for data and service integration in EOSC
  • support the adoption of RDA outputs and recommendations that can benefit the community around EOSC
  • promote new examples and lessons learnt
  • articulate a vision of the future of EOSC; namely, how future communities can easily operationalise the frameworks.


What does the grant include?

  • Up to €12 500 per project awarded
  • Funded activities may include: promotion, analysis, and technical documentation activities 
  • Projects should be short and focused, lasting for no longer than 3 months

Who can apply? 
This call invites applications from individuals or organisations working at the forefront of data or research infrastructure activities in a specific research domain or cluster of domains, with a preference for active RDA community members, to demonstrate how to improve and optimise existing technical data frameworks using RDA recommendations and outputs. 


Applications are open until 20 February 2023, 16.00 CET

Further criteria and conditions are detailed on the EOSC Future Grants Platform.
