Big data e-infrastructures for eScience are emerging. Efforts are under way in standardisation and interoperability. 

  • RDA Research Data Alliance is a standardisation group.
  • EUDat is a large scale EC project providing some first implementations of an e-Infrastructures Big Data platform.

HORIZON 2020 WORK PROGRAMME 2014 – 2015 4. European research infrastructures (including e-Infrastructures) Revised

Research infrastructures are facilities, resources and services that are used by the research communities to conduct research and foster innovation in their fields. Where relevant, they may be used beyond research, e.g. for education or public services. They include: major scientific equipment (or sets of instruments); knowledge-based resources such as collections, archives or scientific data; e-infrastructures, such as data and computing systems and communication networks; and any other infrastructure of a unique nature essential to achieve excellence in research and innovation. Such infrastructures may be 'single-sited', ‘virtual’ or 'distributed'.
