The understanding of legal and ethics issues arising from the Rules of Participation in the European Cloud for Open Science (EOSC) constitutes a major challenge in the implementation of EOSC. The “EOSC RoP Legal & Ethics Compliance Tool” (RoLECT) has been developed by ATHENA Research Center team in the context of the EU-funded “NI4OS-Europe – National Initiatives for Open Science in Europe” project and is addressed to scientists and professionals wishing to onboard a resource (i.e. services or data) to the EOSC ecosystem. By using this tool, stakeholders have the opportunity to verify before the onboarding process whether their resource complies with the basic legal and ethical standards of the EOSC Rules of Participation.
