The bigger picture (key takeaways from this 2-day meeting)

  • The EOSC is starting to emerge, so is its identity, due to the rising interest in all the projects that participated in the meeting.
  • Coordination and alignment among all EOSC-related projects is crucial and needs to be encouraged.
  • Openness and transparency will define the success of our mission, responding to the requirements of users.
  • Setting priorities and providing network solutions, certified services and the required software should be at the focal point in this stage of the process. For this to happen, it will take coordination of the European Commission and the Member States.
  • This is just the beginning. Questions remain open and they need to be covered by all means.
  • “EOSC branding” and effective communication will define our mission’s success.


What is next:

The European Commission, the EOSC Governance
and Executive Boards and all other stakeholders
are invited to use this report to promote the
objectives of EOSC and raise awareness amongst stakeholders.
