We expect that the latter matches the former in number, and that the number of downloads goes into the dozens for each dataset from pure mathematics and higher for those from other disciplines.

Moreover, the \pn platform gives dataset providers an easy framework for making their results available and academically recognized.
This will also free scarce resources of highly trained researchers that are currently tied up by the overhead of data sharing.

\item \emph{Funding agencies and Hiring Committees} have a central framework to judge direct contributions and re-use patterns in mathematical data. This will ultimately better integrate the recognition of data contributions into the academic reputation economy and make data production a more attractive proposition for junior researchers.
\item \emph{Industry} --- in particular engineering companies --- can use mathematical model databases and related services.
Industrial stakeholders will be directly involved in the development of the data standards and framework, so that the services will be exactly tailored to their specific needs as well as to the needs of the scientific community.

That includes in particular the compatibility of \TheProject's deep FAIR services with the existing shallow FAIR services on the EOSC Hub, such as B2Handle, B2Share, etc.
\inparahighlight{Deep FAIR services are a critical prerequisite for large-scale adoption of the EOSC, especially for transdisciplinary reuse} because they allow much more meaningful interaction between researchers.
Especially for large and complex datasets --- as typical for but not limited to the mathematical sciences --- it is important that researchers can find/access/reuse/interoperate with dataset fragments and moreover do so using automated tools.
Especially for large and complex datasets --- as typical for, but not limited to the mathematical sciences --- it is important that researchers can find/access/reuse/interoperate with dataset fragments and moreover do so using automated tools.
This can only be accomplished if the semantics of datasets is described in machine-accessible ways, i.e., by using technologies as envisioned by \TheProject.
For example, with shallow FAIR services only, a researcher has virtually no chance of even finding a relevant dataset because the shared version of the dataset uses encodings that make them non-understandable to a search engine.
Only by attaching machine-readable semantics, i.e., by enabling deep FAIR services, can a search engine determine which datasets could be interesting for the potential reuser.
