Cos4Cloud is addressing the challenge of providing data quality to citizens by developing ten technological services to improve citizen science platforms, also known as citizen observatories, to help them boost the quantity and the quality of observations and ensure their long-term viability. Cos4Cloud makes these services available in the new European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), a virtual space aimed at the European scientific community, in order to make them available to anyone interested in creating or improving their citizen observatory.
Moreover, the cutting-edge technologies help improve interoperability, networking, data quality and secure management of data in citizen observatories, with a very user-friendly focus.
Cos4Cloud will make these services available in the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
Connecting Data to key European Data Management service providers via Blue-Cloud: Cos4Cloud data can be integrated to the Blue-Cloud infrastructure through the support of the D4Science Infrastructure.
Contribution to Blue-Cloud Roadmap: Cos4Cloud plays a relevant role in shaping the strategic Blue-Cloud Roadmap as it provides support in better outlining the Blue-Cloud community, integrating EOSC systems and scaling up Blue-Cloud demonstrators.
Joint dissemination/communication activities: Jaume Piera, Cos4Cloud coordinator, is a member of the Blue-Cloud ESEB team. Thanks to his expertise, he has been invited to join the Blue-Cloud workshop on open science and its thematic demonstrators on 23 March 2021. Blue-Cloud is planning to involve Cos4Cloud in other public events in order to disseminate and communicate their research results to the interested communities.
