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.

1st PaNOSC services now available in the EOSC Portal
The first services provided in the frame of the PaNOSC project, in collaboration with its sister project ExPaNDS, are now accessible from the EOSC Portal: pan-learning.org – an e-learning platform specifically designed to provide training for users of photon and neutron sources. The platform provides curated educational content to help users of research infrastructures learn […]Read

Watch the interview with Erik Knudsen on the McStas python interface McStasScript for X-ray telescope simulations (with DEMO).
We interviewed Erik Knudsen (Physics Dept. at the Technical University Denmark – DTU, and observer in PaNOSC WP5) on the McStas python interface McStasScript for X-ray telescope simulations. Erik collaborates with DTU Space, which has been designing a new telescope, NuSTAR, and is currently designing a new flagship mission for the European Space Agency, called […]Read

Use Case 17 - Reusing data for validation of force fields
Quasi-elastic neutron scattering (QENS) is unique in the sense that it probes nuclei dynamics at the same time-scales that can be probed with molecular dynamics simulations. QENS data therefore offer an opportunity to validate force fields for molecular dynamics simulations and to optimize those force fields. This can be done simply by comparing the dynamic […]Read

Use Case 16 - Coherent mode decomposition of synchrotron emission by COMSYL
The radiation emitted by new low emittance storage rings, like the EBS at ESRF, is much more coherent than in the old synchrotrons. This is of great interest for many experimental techniques like X-ray photon correlation spectroscopy, coherent diffraction imaging, or ptychography. Perhaps the most efficient way to describe the partial coherence characteristics of a […]Read

Use Case 15 - Make cultural heritage publication on ultramarine disease reproducible
The scientist involved, Alessa Gambardella, sees that the “EOSC will offer cultural heritage institutions a platform for sharing collections-based data, which will enable epidemiological studies related…to any degradation phenomena, or conditions-based inquiries” helping to answer questions that reach beyond that possible with the relatively small datasets acquired in a single collection or site. In order […]Read
