This project is the connection of the ESFRI Cluster of Environmental Research Infrastructures (ENVRI) to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). Participating research infrastructures of the environmental domain cover the subdomains of Atmosphere, Marine, Solid Earth and Biodiversity/Ecosystems. The overarching goal is to 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 will be reached by 1) 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; 2) each participating RI will have sustainable, transparent and auditable data services compliant to the FAIR principles; 3) focus will be given to the implementation of prototypes for testing pre-production services, and 4) the complete set of thematic data services and tools provided by the ENVRI cluster will be exposed under the EOSC catalogue of services.
