Environmental research infrastructures (RIs) support their respective research communities by integrating large-scale sensor/observation networks with data curation services, analytical tools and common operational policies. These RIs are developed as pillars of intra-and interdisciplinary research, however comprehension of the complex, pathologically interconnected aspects of the Earth's ecosystem increasingly requires that researchers conduct their experiments across infrastructure boundaries. Consequently, almost all data-related activities within these infrastructures, from data capture to data usage, needs to be designed to be broadly interoperable in order to enable real interdisciplinary innovation. The Data for Science theme in the EU Horizon 2020 project ENVRIPLUS intends to address this interoperability challenge as it relates to the design, implementation and operation of environmental science RIs, the theme focuses on key issues of data identification and citation, curation, cataloguing, processing, optimization, and provenance, supported by a generic cross-infrastructure reference model.
