ENVRI-FAIR is a 4-year H2020 project, launched in early 2019 to connect the Cluster of Environmental Research Infrastructures (ENVRI) to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). The Cluster brings together european research infrastructures on the environment and the Earth system.
The overarching goal is that at the end of the project, all participating Research Infrastructures have built a set of FAIR data services which enhances the efficiency and productivity of researchers, supports innovation, enables data- and knowledge-based decisions and connects the ENVRI Cluster to the EOSC.

This goal is reached by:

  • Well defined community policies and standards on all steps of the data life cycle, aligned with the wider European policies, as well as with international developments;
  • Each participating Research Infrastructure will have sustainable, transparent and auditable data services, for each step of data life cycle, compliant to the FAIR principles;
  • The focus of the work is on the implementation of prototypes for testing pre-production services at each Research Infrastructure; the catalogue of prepared services is defined for each Research Infrastructures independently, depending on the maturity of the involved Research Infrastructures;
  • The complete set of thematic data services and tools provided by the ENVRI cluster is exposed under the EOSC catalogue of services via EOSC-hub.

La prochaine "ENVRI week" est organisée à Dresde (Allemagne) du 3 au 7 février 2020.

Several data and services centres of the ODATIS ocean cluster are involved in this project, including CDS-IS-Coriolis and CDS-IS-SIMER via the european research infrastructures Euro-Argo and SeaDataNet, which are directly integrated into WP9 "Marine Subdomain", one of the 4 activity packages of the ENVRI cluster.
