The digital science, which relies on the use of electronic infrastructures, services, and tools based on ICT, makes scientific processes more efficient and transparent, offers new tools for scientific collaboration, experimentation, and analysis, and makes scientific knowledge more accessible. At the same time, the digital science contributes to the emergence of new scientific methods, disciplines, and paradigms to respond to new challenges through the global distribution of the communities in which individuals and the society are directly involved in the creation and consumption of scientific knowledge. The paper discusses the plans and arrangements of development and use of the digital science in European programs. They are about means to coordinate and support the formation and functioning of an open homogeneous Federated productive infrastructure for the whole of Europe, the single digital Research Area ERA (European Research Area). EGI (European Grid Infrastructure) plays a key role in the provision of services in this online European Research Area, which unifies and supports researchers of different disciplines, enabling them to process the data obtained in the integrated European computing environment. Such an example of the European organization and the active supporting research is very instructive for Ukraine.
