The Technical Interoperability of Data and Services Task Force will take the EOSC Interoperability Framework (EIF) recommendations around technical architecture as their starting point to help develop the EOSC Core and Exchange as described in the SRIA. The TF will deliver key documents such as a first principles document and a landscape overview of the EOSC Interoperability Framework (EIF), as well as technical architecture descriptions of the EIF, including examples of adaptation hints for major existing solutions.
The Task Force will take the EIF recommendations around technical architecture (https://doi.org/10.2777/620649) as their starting point to help develop the EOSC Core and Exchange as described in the SRIA document (https://www.eosc.eu/sites/default/files/EOSC-SRIA-V1.0_15Feb2021.pdf). Activities will include engaging with the community to co-ordinate the federation of thematic services,
infrastructure services, generic services and datasets and activities to advance the composability of resources.
The EOSC Core and Exchange will adopt a system of systems approach to create interoperability whilst preserving a healthy diversity of discrete components, both on the semantic as well as the technical level. That puts a strong focus on the interworking of these components. This Task Force will enable the EOSC-Future project, other EOSC projects and the EOSC resource providers to harmonize their approaches to achieve interoperability.
The Task Force will also take the outputs of other Task Forces like AAI, Semantic Interoperability, Persistent Identifiers and combine them into an overarching and integrating view.
