These days, there is a lot of European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) in the air. There are symposia, many projects (EOSC-hub and SSHOC, to name a few), an association and even whole Horizon calls devoted to it.
But what is it really about? How can you use it? And how does EOSC relate to CLARIN?
Rather than giving lengthy explanations, or drawing huge architectural diagrams about future plans, we thought that a demonstration of readily available services and data sets can give a better impression.
Therefore, we made a video that illustrates how many language processing services, both from CLARIN centres and other providers, are just a click away. Similarly, thousands of digitized language resources are online accessible, at this very moment. The CLARIN infrastructure connects these data sets and tools. That is how we are all working together on the European Open Science Cloud!

All material used in this video is easily accessible via a Virtual Collection (in the FAIR spirit of EOSC!). The links to the input files make it even easier to invoke the Language Resource Switchboard yourself.
