During the virtual hackathon that took place on 14th of June this year, the six applicants selected in the frame of the EOSC-Pillar Open Call for Thematic Service Providers presented in more details their services and their current development stage, highlighting the potential benefits for the EOSC Association and the wider Open Science community.
This was one of the main criteria taken into account by the evaluation committee consisting of project technical experts. Besides that, the committee discussed with the service providers which aspects should be addressed in order to meet all the requirements to be part of the EOSC portfolio.
After the event, experts proposed to provide dedicated and individual support to all of the applicants to further develop their service. As of July 2021, four applicants accepted and for some of them the supporting actions have already started.
EOSC-Pillar experts will follow the progress of the service development and provide assistance until the project ends.
