The EGI-ACE Horizon 2020 project delivers the ‘EOSC Compute Platform’, a distributed federated compute infrastructure that serves users of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). EGI-ACE (EGI Advanced Computing for EOSC) builds on the pan-european EGI e-infrastructure federation and provides various types of infrastructures, platforms and software services from publicly funded compute centres, commercial service providers and research communities with pan-European relevance. 

With this call for use cases the EGI-ACE project offers access to infrastructure and platform services,  dedicated user support and training. The services, support and training are sponsored by the European Commission and various national funding agencies and are free to access to the use cases that will be selected through the call.  
 
The target audience of this call are international researchers, research projects, communities and infrastructures, as well as national research groups who need services and support for:

- Large-scale data processing, scientific analysis, visualisation 
- Hosting data analysis platforms and applications in the cloud to offer them for international use cases 
- Federate and make accessible community-specific compute services in EOSC
