This paper describes the new EGI ‘Applications on demand service’, that the EGI collaboration specifically designed for individual researchers, small research teams and early phase research infrastructures that do not have dedicated computational and storage resources, online applications and science gateways to perform scientific data analysis. The described service is available at and through a lightweight registration and user identity vetting process allows user-friendly access to a growing number of scientific applications and application hosting frameworks (science gateways, VREs) that are configured to use the dedicated pool of cloud computing and HTC clusters from EGI. The service operates as an open and extensible ‘hub’ for providers and e-infrastructure user support teams who wish to federated and share applications and services with individual researchers, or small, fragmented communities, typically referred to as ‘the long tail of science’.

The paper is accepted at the International Workshop on Science Gateways 2017 event, and will be will be published in the open access, online-only workshop proceedings under
