On the occasion of the launch of the European Open Science Cloud on November 23rd, the European Commission disclosed the list of the people appointed to be members of the EOSC Executive Board.
The call for applications opened at the end of August this year to recruit 11 experts in matters related to research infrastructures representing all stakeholders, with the task to provide advice and support on the implementation of the EOSC: from the rules of participation, to making research data interoperable and re-usable according to the FAIR principles, to guidance to service provision.
We are very proud to announce that Natalia Manola, Managing Director of OpenAIRE, is among these experts! This appointment is a recognition of the importance of Open Science and what the OpenAIRE infrastructure represents in Europe for the full success of the European Open Science Cloud. The community and network of National Open Access Desks and the rich set of services bring Open Science at all levels of the research life-cycle and assist in the transition to open research and knowledge sharing. The participation in the EOSC Executive Board, in addition to OpenAIRE’s contribution to the EOSC Portal with its services, will support positioning Open Science as a best practice for research in all its nuances, at the core of the European Open Science Cloud.
OpenAIRE participates in the EOSC Executive Board together with other relevant initiatives such as RDA, CESSDA, Science Europe, GÉANT and many others.
The selection criteria together with the full list of the members of the EOSC Executive Board is available on the EC’s website.
This mutual effort and collaboration between OpenAIRE and FAIRsharing will ensure that this interconnected information will provide greater knowledge to researchers and other stakeholders. For example researchers will be able to discover related standards alongside the databases that implement specific standards.
A big step has been made towards international collaboration supporting Open Science and data sharing aligned with data protection and the high relevance of joint initiatives such as the European Open Science Cloud.
Scholarly Diversity - Skills and Training - Collaboration at a global level are the success points of Open Science. Read on to find out more about OpenAIRE's response to the consultation on open science launched by UNESCO.

ABOUT – EUA and OpenAIRE organise a joint online workshop on Citizen Science to discuss understanding of the challenges and opportunities for universities engaging in Citizen Science, and explore how Citizen Science can benefit from and add to the transition to Open Science.
This joint workshop will discuss themes around institutional support for Citizen Science and offers an opportunity to transfer and share knowledge. The aim is to exchange experiences, lessons learnt, and explore common challenges. To support Citizen Science, the online workshop will discuss tools, guidelines and good practices from Open Science experiences as well. Participating universities will have the opportunity to share expertise, coordinate efforts and exchange advice on services, tools and legal and ethical issues.
