A shared glossary is of central importance for the European Open Science Cloud development (EOSC). In fact, the lack of a set of shared terms with their explanations is among the factors hindering a solid and effective communication and collaboration between the diverse actors involved in the EOSC development.
This is the reason why a Glossary Interest Group has been created on the Liaison Platform of the EOSC Secretariat website. The aim is to collect contribution and feedback on this set of shared terms deemed of interest to fully understand the characterization of the European Open Science Cloud.
The first intermediate version of the EOSC glossary consists mainly of the basic concepts required to create the concept system and targets the infrastructure domain. This set of concepts will affect the entire development of the glossary, therefore any comment added through the dedicated Interest Group will be of crucial importance.
