Helping to realize the vision of FAIR research in EOSC

Reliance delivers a suite of innovative and interconnected services that extend EOSC’s capabilities to support the management of the research lifecycle within Earth Science Communities and Copernicus Users.

Reliance services for EOSC

Extending the Reliance community

Our vision

The overall goal of Reliance is to realize the vision of FAIR research in EOSC by adopting a holistic approach that manages the whole research lifecycle as a first-class citizen. 

Reliance proposes a service ecosystem based on three complementary and interconnected technologies: Research Objects, Data Cubes and AI-based Text Mining.

The services will be showcased and validated through multidisciplinary and thematic real life use cases led by three different Earth Science communities.

Data Cube

Data Cubes are considered as a reference service to provide access to data infrastructures and as a set of tools for geospatial data management, mostly related to access and exploitation of large collections of multi-temporal, multi-resolution satellite imagery.

Research Object

Research objects are semantically enriched information units that aim to account, describe and share everything about your research, including how those things are related, in a way that is understandable by both humans and machines.

Text mining

AI-based text mining and enrichment services provide means to leverage the wealth of scientific texts. They include metadata extraction, semantic annotation, content-based search and recommendation, measure of the novelty and innovation potential of a specific research.

Integration in EOSC

All RELIANCE services will be connected and integrated with EOSC AAI, in alignment with AARC Guidelines, as well as with other selected core and added-value services provided by EOSC
