Quality and Trust in the European Open Science Cloud


The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) has the objective to provide a virtual environment offering open and seamless services for the re-use of research data across borders and scientific disciplines. This ambitious vision sets significant challenges that the research community must meet if the benefits of EOSC are to be realised. One of those challenges, which has both technical and cultural aspects, is to determine the “Rules of Participation” that enable users to assess the quality of the data and services provided through EOSC and thereby enable them to trust the data and services they access. This paper discusses some issues relevant to determining the Rules of Participation that will enable EOSC to meet these objectives.
