The Photon and Neutron Open Science Cloud (PaNOSC)
The Photon and Neutron Open Science Cloud (PaNOSC) is a European project for making FAIR data a reality in 6 European Research Infrastructures (RIs), developing and providing services for scientific data and connecting these to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
- Participate in the construction of the EOSC by linking with the e-infrastructures and other ESFRI clusters.
- Make scientific data produced at Europe’s major Photon and Neutron sources fully compatible with the FAIR principles.
- Generalise the adoption of open data policies, standard metadata and data stewardship from 15 photon and neutron RIs and physics institutes across Europe
- Provide innovative data services to the users of these facilities locally and the scientific community at large via the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
- Increase the impact of RIs by ensuring data from user experiments can be used beyond the initial scope.
- Share the outcomes with the national RIs who are observers in the proposal and the community at large to promote the adoption of FAIR data principles, data stewardship and the EOSC.

Guidelines for implementing a Research Data Policy released
In the frame of PaNOSC WP2 – Data policy and stewardship the first draft of the Guidelines for implementing a Research Data Policy have been released. The purpose of the document is to provide guidelines on how to implement a research data policy at Photon and Neutron (PaN) sources and at Research Infrastructures (RIs) in […]Read

New publication on reproducible science with Jupyter Notebooks released
Software plays a key role in modern science. Experiments that produce large amounts of data generally need substantial software-based analysis to extract understanding. Simulation-based research in particular yields results based solely on the computer-based generation of data and its subsequent analysis. For publications, the scientific principle of reproducibility requires that studies and processes are documented […]Read

Use Case 20 - Using an e-learning platform to support presentations
When presenting software at conferences or seminars it is easy to demonstrate the functionalities, but much more difficult to effectively communicate the actual user experience. Furthermore, the passive mode of listing makes it easier to forget what the software could do or how to do it. In order to engage the participants, online services can […]Read

Use Case 19 - Online visualization and analysis of Bruker NMR output
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is a technique widely used in characterization of various chemical compounds, providing information about the atomic electronic structure of molecules. Bruker is a world leader in the sector of NMR spectrometers. Bruker NMR devices output raw data in a proprietary format, that is processed by both open source and proprietary […]Read

Use Case 18 - In-silico Neutron diffraction from Boro-carbon systems: precise and reliable tool for exact structural analysis and defect detection
Inelastic neutron scattering experiments and ab-initio calculations have been used to investigate the location-dependent response of defects in diamond, and doped diamond structures. Utilising the exact structural properties and nuclear positions based on the ab-initio calculations, their neutron scattering signals were analysed, and the origin of the diffraction peaks was identified, correlating them to individual […]Read
European HDF5 Users Online Meeting
The HDF5 file format is widely used in our communities to process and archive data for the long term. It is therefore one of the fundamental building blocks for Open Science. PaNOSC and the HDF Group would like to invite you to join us at the 2nd European HDF5 Users Meeting. The meeting will be […]More info
