  • EINFRA-2-2014 – e-Infrastructure for Open Access: including “Developing proof of concept and prototyping new services in support of open science (e.g. new forms of publishing, innovative services based on data mining, new forms of peer review etc.), assisting researchers and educators in everyday tasks”
  • EINFRA-3-2014 – Towards global data e-infrastructures – Research Data Alliance
  • INFRASUPP-4-2015 – New professions and skills for e-infrastructures: “Formal education for emerging professions of e-infrastructure operators, research technologists (including those possessing computational skills, e.g. in parallel programming), data scientists or “data librarians” hardly exists today. Professional recognition of these communities and the development of appropriate curricula, training and skills are crucial to ensure effective services to institution staff and students.”
