 Obiettivo del progetto (Objective)

'Developing world-class research infrastructures for environmental research is one of the top priorities of European authorities. This proposal brings together scientists and users being involved in Europe’s major environmental related research infrastructure projects, i.e. EISCAT, EPOS, LifeWATCH, EMSO, and ICOS, with their US counterparts that are responsible for the NSF funded projects AMISR, EARTHSCOPE, DataONE, OOI and NEON. The intention is that by interlinking these activities new synergies are generated that will stimulate the creation of a truly global integration of existing infrastructures. The key of this integration process will be the efficient access to and the open sharing of data and information produced by the environmental research infrastructures. This important crosscutting infrastructure category is subject to rapid changes, driven almost entirely outside the field of environmental sciences. Trends in this area include growing collaborations between computer and environmental scientists, leading to the emergence of a new class of scientific activity structured around networked access to observational information. Therefore links to running projects like ENVRI in Europe or EARTHCUBE in the US who are developing relevant architectures are indispensable. Considering this perspective the COOPEUS project will serve as a testbed for new standards and methods. Interoperability concepts and the development of e-infrastructures for the environmental ESFRI projects will beyond data also include the tools that scientist use for analyzing the data. The new term that describes this new quality in cooperation is “interworkability” which means that interoperability is extended to the exchange of concepts between individual scientists. The COOPEUS project will act as an incubation chamber for new sustainable concepts in this field. The main outcome will be to develop MoUs that will determine future cooperation strategies between the research infrastructures.'

Introduzione (Teaser)

Global climate change is presenting large-scale and complex challenges that require environmental research communities to work together. An EU initiative is building a platform to improve information and knowledge exchange between Europe and the United States on environmental issues.

Descrizione progetto (Article)

There is a need for multidisciplinary environmental research to effectively communicate and share data to mitigate the effects of natural and man-made disasters. Linking environmental research infrastructures (RIs) such as tools, resources and facilities to monitor Earth, oceans and the atmosphere in the two global regions can help deal with the negative impacts of global climate change.

To achieve this, the EU-funded http://www.coopeus.eu (COOPEUS) project is strengthening RI collaboration by bringing together American and European research networks and related projects from a broad range of disciplines. The project focuses on the environmental research disciplines of carbon cycling, biodiversity, ocean observation, space weather and solid-earth dynamics.

Work began by identifying commonalities and determining gaps in data policies, standards and access among these five disciplines. Future challenges for transatlantic and cross-disciplinary data exchange were identified. Further, the current state of interoperability was identified, defined and assessed via questionnaires, workshops and meetings.

The project members have created a joint data policy with guidelines for open data sharing for RIs. They are working on common data and protocol standards, data access, intellectual property rights and strategies that serve as barriers to interoperability. Findings will form the basis of a roadmap providing best practices for improving environmental RIs.

COOPEUS collaborative efforts are helping to jointly define future interoperability among environmental RIs in Europe and the United States in order to address environment-related issues. Scientists from different disciplines and continents will benefit from efficient access and open sharing of data.
