The Evolution of the European Open Science Cloud towards a federation

EOSC Beyond is a new Horizon Europe project which is committed to enhancing the EOSC ecosystem by enabling seamless integration of EOSC resources through a federated network of pilot Nodes. Utilizing co-design methodologies and partnerships, it is dedicated to improving existing EOSC Core services and framework, including Authentication and Authorization Infrastructure, Persistent Identifiers, Resource Catalogue, Metadata Knowledge Graph, Marketplace, and more. 

OpenAIRE plays a crucial role in EOSC Beyond by enhancing the interoperability and integration of services within the EOSC ecosystem. As a key provider of EOSC Core services, including the EOSC Knowledge Graph, Providers Dashboard, and Research Products Accounting, OpenAIRE focuses on extending the capabilities of the EOSC platform to connect regional, national, and thematic nodes. 

DMP Platforms Sign the Salzburg Manifesto 

At the dawn of 2024, the key Data Management Plan (DMP) service providers—ARGOS, DAMAP, and DSW—published the Salzburg Manifesto on machine-actionable Data Management Plans (maDMPs). This manifesto proudly presents the shared commitment of major DMP service providers in the EU, US, and UK to collaborate and optimize data management planning through common standards and automation.

Charting New Paths: EC's New Action Plan for Research Assessment 

COARA signatories have begun publishing action plans to implement the ten commitments outlined in the Agreement on Reforming Research Assessment (ARRA). The European Commission's plan aligns closely with OpenAIRE's initiatives to support open science practices. This plan aims to enhance the diversity, transparency, and quality of research assessments across the EU.
