Benefits of using EOSC-Nordic services

Researchers and innovators can publish, find, and re-use each other’s data and tools for research, innovation, and educational purposes under well defined, secure, and trusted conditions, supported by a sustainable model.

As a researcher or a research performing organisation, you get a wider and better selection of services available with the help of EOSC-Nordic services. Furthermore, you have also greater International research collaboration possibilities when Open Science practices and FAIR data principles are widely in use. FAIR data are data that meet the principles of findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reusability. More effective use of resources means also sharing the cost.
