The NEANIAS Work Package 6 “Core Services Foundation and Implementation” establishes generic, cross-community services that amplify the potential of thematic services delivered by our thematic work packages (Underwater, Atmospheric, Space), enabling Open Science, and facilitating the migration to the EOSC concepts, by streamlining access to cloud resources.

NEANIAS project aims to develop and integrate services to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) in the field of Underwater, Atmospheric and Space research. The objective is to share these thematic services with scientific researchers of EOSC communities on these fields.


Con l’entrata in produzione di SKA (Square Kilometre Array), il più grande radiotelescopio del mondo, formato da centinaia di migliaia di radiotelescopi, l’astrofisica vedrà un vero balzo in avanti. Le dimensioni di SKA permetteranno agli astronomi di monitorare il cielo con dettagli senza precedenti, migliaia di volte più velocemente rispetto ad altri telescopi già esistenti.

NEANIAS is not only research and technology, but also the people who make it possible and put it in value. We present this conversation we had with Simone Mantovani, Managing Director at Meteorological and Environmental Earth Observation (MEEO) a small and medium enterprise located in Ferrara, Italy, in order to make NEANIAS project better known from different perspectives.

La realizzazione della European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) richiede, oltre al coordinamento tra attori molto eterogenei, anche la creazione di servizi in cloud che rispondano alle esigenze della comunità della ricerca, seguendo il paradigma della scienza aperta, e che siano al contempo adattabili a settori scientifici diversi.

2020 has been a genuinely unusual year, but the NEANIAS Space team never lost its focus. We have been working really hard to walk the first steps towards the materialization of our foreseen collaborative research ecosystem in EOSC. We have had to face a fair number of technological and scientific challenges in the process, which often required out-of-the-box solutions to be overcome. It has been a fantastic experience that made us all give our best, a very enriching road that culminated with the first release of NEANIAS space services.

This article reports on the first release of the NEANIAS WP3 “Atmospheric Thematic services” and the software underlying each service, with special reference to the land-atmosphere interface. The atmospheric services are planned to deliver tools to enrich the workflows of a wide range of users from academic/research institutions to industrial stakeholders, to national institutional level institutes such as Civil Protection agencies. Interest can arise also from more regional governmental institutions such as Regions and Municipalities, especially in relation to detection and evaluation of gas release in the atmosphere.

The WP2 “Underwater Services” involves three out of nine thematic services of the NEANIAS project. The overall common goal is the development of thematic cloud services which support the analysis and data management of a large diversity of tasks within the fields of underwater, atmosphere and space research, development and easy to handle, fair to use and platform independent. We present Bathymetry mapping from acoustic data service implementationSeafloor Mosaicking from Optical Data and Seabed Classification from Multispectral, Multibeam Data services.
