EOSC - a tool for enabling Open Science in Europe

EOSC clusters

OpenAIRE is happy to be a signatory to a joint statement with the Science Clusters and eInfrastructures signaling the importance of making EOSC relevant for scientific communities and researchers. Integration of relevant research support activities in the EOSC Roadmap is crucial.

The following points were highlighted:

Research oriented services: An inclusive and FAIR research eco-system

Trust based open access: Regulation light and free to access resources

Collaboration support: By nature EOSC is a community-led enterprise, it must be kept that way

Sustainability: A plan is needed for long-term support for EOSC from the EC Member States

OpenAIRE is fully committed to the success of EOSC and will work concertedly to support the roll-out of EOSC and its success, in particular leveraging the OpenAIRE network on the ground to support Open Science.

Report from the EOSC executive board working group (WG) landscape

Landscape of EOSC-related infrastructures and initiatives

Report from the EOSC executive board working group 

Mapping exercise of the existing research infrastructures in Europe which are candidates to be part of the EOSC federation identifies OpenAIRE as a crucial contributor. 

The Landscape Working Group (WG) of the EOSC Executive Board has surveyed and documented the landscape of infrastructures, initiatives and policies across Europe relating to the development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
The report has now been officially published in its final version. It is available for download in the EU Bookshop.

DOC 2This report describes activities in the Member States (MS) and Associated Countries (AC) related to EOSC, summarising existing policies and investments based on input from the MS and AC, the expert knowledge of the WG members and delegates to the EOSC Governing Board, as well as information from Horizon 2020 research projects and from open sources. The work builds on existing surveys and information provided by national authorities, stakeholder communities and the relevant H2020 projects in close collaboration with MS and AC.

The report identifies OpenAIRE as a crucial player - as a valuable network through its NOADs and as a provider of  essential Guidelinesand Services (such as ARGOS, Zenodoand AMNESIA).

The EOSC Landscape Working Group is hosting the Final Validation Workshop, organised in collaboration with EOSCsecretariat.eu. This invitation-only event is being organized on 28-29 September 2020.
