For the third consecutive year, the National Open Access Desks for Greece and Cyprus continue their joint efforts to inform and update the research and academic communities in their countries about important Open Science aspects.
This webinar presented the pan-European electronic infrastructure for Open Science - OpenAIRE and the European Open Science Cloud - EOSC. The webinar was supported also by the NI4OS-Europe project.
Lately, there is a rapid change in the field of Research and Innovation (R&I) in Europe. The adoption of the Open Science model by the European Commission has channelled open standards into national research settings. Complementary to new policies that are created, EOSC is being developed aiming to become the European research web which incorporates good practices and interconnects with national R&I ecosystems by design. Research infrastructures are called to support data-driven research and adapt to the new reality that adds value to their services.
The presentation informed about OpenAIRE, its continuous activity in the European Research Area for more than 10 years now and its evolution into a legal entity based in Greece. It also helped to provide a better understanding of EOSC and its operation, and communicated how OpenAIRE and NI4OS-Europe assist its implementation. In addition, it highlighted the changes brought by EOSC in various R&I areas and explained how everyday activities of researchers will be performed as well as what measures are underway to fully support the research process in all its dimensions.EOSC | open science | policy
