FAIRCORE4EOSC is a new Horizon Europe project running from 1 June 2022 to 31 May 2025 and coordinated by CSC - IT Center for Science. The project will deliver nine new EOSC-Core components in support of a FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, re-usable) research life cycle, bridging the gaps identified in the EOSC Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA). The components will enable an EOSC PID infrastructure, an EOSC research software infrastructure, support for sharing and access to metadata schemas and crosswalks and offer advanced research-intent driven discovery services over all EOSC repositories.
