EOSC-hub's and OpenAIRE's input to the EOSC implementation roadmap

The Commission Staff Working Document on the Implementation Roadmap of the European Open Science Cloud released in March 2018, presents the outcome of the exploration of appropriate governance and financing mechanisms for EOSC in the form of an implementation roadmap, based on six strategic action lines: a) architecture, (b) data, (c) services, (d) access and interfaces, (e) rules and (f) governance.

EOSC-hub and OpenAIRE Advance are proud to be part of this initiative and are already contributing to the six strategic directions as follows:
Action lines
Architecture Provides a framework to manage services sourced from a number of service providers and plays the role of service integrator. Connects institutional, national and thematic infrastructures in Europe into supporting open/FAIR science and links to them to similar infrastructures around the world.
Data Through the EOSC-hub Marketplace, provides a discovery and access channel to FAIR-accredited datasets Facilitates the discovery, accessibility and re-use of data produced by scientists and fosters a FAIR and open research data management culture via systematic training.
Services Contributes to the definition of a participatory and lightweight service portfolio management process in collaboration with the participating service providers. Supports the optimum use of resources through middleware services that connect all types of research artifacts, from all phases of the research life cycle.
Provides Research Data Management services to plan, store, anonymize, publish and link research results.
Engages with the demand and supply side of the EOSC, and will co-develop and operate a marketplace as one entry point to EOSC. Monitors (open) research in Europe via provenance-based services.
Provides a coordinated Open Science Helpdesk (in 34 European countries) for support and training of data scientists, research administrators and project coordinators.
Rules of Participation Collaborates with partners and external projects/initiatives to establish and maintain a corpus of policies that is attractive and provides value for both service providers and service users. Transforms open science policies into concrete rules and guidelines for:
  •  Content providers to allow seamless access to research artifacts
  • Research communities to embed open science in their publishing workflows
  • Citizen Science initiatives to integrate their efforts in national or EU open science infrastructures.
