Working together for the European Open Science Cloud

Updates, priorities and opportunities for the EOSC

16 October 2019, 15:00-16:15


Purpose and Scope

It’s been a busy few months for the implementation of the EOSC with the launch of new H2020 EOSC-related projects. Looking ahead, key outputs will be delivered by H2020 projects, national initiatives and other services to ensure EOSC is in operation by the end of 2020. This webinar will focus on the developing EOSC landscape and the growing community of stakeholders.

A series of new EOSC-related projects have kicked-off since our last webinar in July. In addition, the first EOSC Concertation meeting took place in September with the participation of over 30 projects. We’ll be hearing from DG CNECT and DG RTD on how these new projects fit into the EOSC jigsaw and what the next steps are from an EC perspective.

From a governance perspective, the EOSC Executive Board (EB) will very shortly publish their Workplan until 2020. The plan outlines the key outputs of the five EOSC EB Working Groups (Landscape, the Architecture, FAIR data, Rules of Participation, and Sustainability). Importantly, it also highlights the procedures and required inputs from key stakeholders including H2020 projects, national initiatives and disciplinary services. The webinar will provide a further details on the workplan and WG activities.

There are also new co-creation opportunities for the stakeholder community to get directly involved in shaping the EOSC. Find out more about how you or your organisation can apply and contribute fully. Key EOSC-related events are also coming up including the much anticipated EOSC Symposium, 26-28 November and second EOSC Concertation meeting, 28-29 November, both in beautiful Budapest.

So sign up and join us for the second EOSCsecretariat.eu webinar. With 450+ registrants at the first webinar in July, make sure you sign up and book your spot.
