SSHOC is one of the activities foreseen under INFRAEOSC 04-2018, which supports the integration and consolidation of thematic e-infrastructure platforms in preparation for connecting them to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
The vision of the EOSC is to provide seamless, Europe-wide access to research data and tools across scientific or thematic disciplines and geographical borders. In consolidating the resources available within a particular scientific discipline, each thematic cluster project thus adheres to both FAIR principles and the principles of Open Science.
