Greek Research Infrastructures leaders on the next steps for Open Science
Self-organizing research communities for open science: Locating Open Science (OS) at the core of European Union strategies and flagships led an increasing number of public stakeholders with an active role in the academic and research fora to embrace this new paradigm, though in a decentralised way. Developments of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) contribute both to accelerating this shift and to introducing a coherent approach to communicating, internally among national stakeholders, and e...
