The European Open Science Cloud for Research

Leading European initiatives, EUDAT LIBER, OpenAIRE, EGI and GEANT share their joint vision for the European Open Science Cloud for Research which includes eight elements of success for a concrete contribution to the Digital Single Market.

The Open Science Cloud, part of the European Commission’s Digital Single Market Strategy, will empower research data sharing, data stewardship and data reuse in Europe for the benefit of innovation and growth. Today’s joint statement sets out the partners’ strategic vision for the Open Science Cloud’s organisation, sustainability and governance as a contribution towards the practical realisation of the EC’s vision.

OpenAIRE Interoperability Workshop

120 delegates gathered in University of Minho (Braga, Portugal) last week (February 7/8) to attend a workshop on Interoperability. The purpose of the workshop was to showcase the new set of OpenAIRE guidelines and to discuss and get input onto OpenAIRE’s approach to harvesting metadata. This was in addition to the wider aim of discussion the challenging issue of interoperability within the open access world and repositories. We invited therefore representatives of a range of communities to present on how they see themselves fitting into the knowledge landscape: CRIS, DataCite, publishers, data repositories, EUDAT, research infrastructures, and ultimately, from an OpenAIRE point of view, how we can potentially work together with them.

The breakout groups were a chance to see how the guidelines reflected on other initiatives, and get input into issues such as grant ID encoding, licensing considerations, and some decisions were made such as who and how to harvest in terms of data.

The 2-day event also started off with an open science session, including delegates from the Open Knowledge Foundation and Geoffrey Boulton, who widened the perspective beyond the research institution on this challenging debate.
