On Tuesday, September 28, between 15:30 and 17:00 CEST, the DANS Data Trail Workshop: From here to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) will take place.
Since the online event in November 2020 more steps have been taken on the road to Open Science. The first iteration of a monitor of the progress and barriers concerning the Dutch data infrastructure and related facilities will be presented and discussed with the audience. Do you as a researcher, policy maker or service provider know where we stand and want to provide your insights? Please join this workshop on 28 September from 15.30 to 17.00 PM CEST.
In 2015, the European Commission initiated the process to create a European Open Science Cloud. The EOSC aims to become a “trusted, virtual, federated environment that cuts across borders and scientific disciplines to store, share, process and re-use research digital objects (like publications, data, and software) following FAIR principles”. The EOSC brings together institutional, national and European stakeholders, initiatives and data infrastructures to develop an inclusive open science ecosystem in Europe. The higher goal is that this will lead to new insights and innovations, higher research productivity and improved reproducibility in science.
By 2020, several steps have been taken on the “stairway to the EOSC heaven”. There are a couple of EOSC projects, an EOSC Association, a website full of documents, a list of services to be included in EOSC, but also a lot of promises remain hidden in the clouds. And which gaps and obstacles do you as a researcher, policy maker or service provider observe or experience?
The workshop that is organised in collaboration with the EOSC Synergy project will feature several speakers providing short updates followed by an interactive session using interactive polling.
