EUDAT – Data as an Infrastructure
The three-year EU-funded project EUDAT (European Data) will deliver a federated data infrastructure with the capacity and capability for meeting future researchers’ needs in a sustainable way. The design will be driven through the data service requirements of the research communities in Europe and beyond. This infrastructure will become increasingly important over the next decade as we face the challenges of massive expansion in the volume of data being generated and preserved (the so-called "data tsunami") and in the complexity of that data and the systems required to provide access to it. JSC will be a cornerstone of the federated European data infrastructure and will develop core services for basic use as well as specialized services for communities. More information will be available at http://www.eudat.eu after the project starts in October 2011.
