EOSC-Pillar Work Package 7 on Horizontal data storage and computing resources recently completed D7.1, a key deliverable describing the activities performed within task 7.1 to collect information about needs for support to integrate services, either from the many project use cases and services or from other actors, i.e. the partners involved in the project as well as the national or thematic infrastructures in the EOSC-Pillar countries (Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy).
The collection of this information has been conducted in various ways: through a direct interaction with Work Package 6 on use cases, through the WP3 survey on national initiatives and via a set of interviews with representatives of national infrastructures in participating countries.
