EOSCsecretariat.eu engages with new and existing communities. You can also join EOSC Interest Groups (IGs), an open and collaborative virtual space where you can collaborate, share information, and discuss EOSC related topics.
Open Science and scientific collaboration are vital to tackle key societal challenges as they emerge. "EOSC is an ideal tool to respond to public emergencies such as the COVID-19 virus by (1) opening up scientific data on the virus, (2) sharing live on-the-ground data on the spread of the virus, and (3) accessing and combining this data not only to eradicate the virus but learn how to deal with similar viruses and future outbreaks."
Says Cathrin Stöver, EOSC Executive Board Co-Chair. Read more.
Open science increases the quality and impact of science by placing all information in one, easy access area. This make science more efficient through better sharing of resources, more reliable through better verification and more responsive as we race to find a vaccine for COVID-19. Read more.
