The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is a project from the European Commission to enable and facilitate access to a wide range of open data and services in Europe. The EOSC financed two projects dedicated to developing data services for the Photon and Neutron (PaN) community – PaNOSC ( ) and ExPaNDS ( ). This talk will present the outcomes of the two projects and how they can be used to build a PaN Data Commons as part of the EOSC. The Data Commons acts as a single point of entry to search for and find data from the PaN facilities in Europe. The PaN Data Commons will provide a community service available to the EOSC to boost data sharing and re-use and ensure data from the PaN facilities are FAIR.
