To empower European researchers, institutions and initiatives to easily discover, access, process, analyse and share Copernicus data, tools, resources and services through the EOSC Portal in a way that can be seamlessly integrated into their processes and research practices.
EOSC Portal will be enhanced with pan-European federated data and computing infrastructure services for Copernicus by the C-SCALE (Copernicus eoSC AnaLytics Engine) project. The C-SCALE open federation will integrate cross-/inter- disciplinary EOSC services, ensuring interoperability between distributed data catalogues, computational tools and infrastructure. In doing so, the federation will increase the service offer of the EOSC Portal providing state-of-the-art research enabling services to its users.
O1: Scale-up the EOSC Portal integrating pan-European computing and data resources for Copernicus, including resources from, inter alia, the Copernicus DIAS platforms and the Collaborative Ground Segment nodes.
O2: Federated Copernicus resources with EOSC computing and storage providers to deliver a wide infrastructure optimised for very large FAIR data handling and fast user query response to support Copernicus data uptake.
O3: Piloting the provision of a distributed online Sentinel long-term archive in EOSC.
O4: Co-design of the federation with relevant scientific communities across Europe to offer a seamless user experience and increased exploitation of Copernicus resources through the EOSC Portal
C-SCALE receives funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No. 101017529.
