Why is EOSC relevant to researchers?! Check out our communication material!

  • By Marie Czuray

Dear colleagues,

We hope that you are well and enjoy the beautiful sides of summer - or at least looking forward to enjoying them soon! 

We are wondering...

Would you like to support your network and institution to get involved with the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and show them how they can benefit from it?

For you and everyone else interested in Open Science, we offer an information package to raise awareness about EOSC. On our website you can find more information and download promotional material such as flyers, PowerPoint templates, posters, etc. You can also find the link to our new podcast "Stories of Data: Open.Science.Talk“ there: https://www.eosc-pillar.eu/ambassadors-programme


Our goal is to make the vision and concepts of EOSC tangible and explain it’s practical benefits for researchers. 

If you like our materials and the podcast, please share it within your network so people understand what EOSC is all about! 

When you have shared it, please let us know...

  • How useful is the material to you? How do you adapt it?  
  • How do you promote it

Third TRIPLE ThatCamp on Sustainability in Open Science 13th September, Zadar - Croatia

  • By Tiziana Lombardo

Sustainability is easily one of the most pressing matters and most discussed topics of our time. This is as true for the economy and society as it is for research and thereby for Open Science. At the third TRIPLE ThatCamp we want to discuss and brainstorm on the relationship between sustainability and Open Science with you. If you are a researcher, a librarian, an interested citizen or someone otherwise involved or interested in sustainability in Open Science you are welcome to join us at this event.

Topics of discussion could be:

  • How can the long-term quality of data be secured?
  • What governance/business models are sustainable for Open Science?
  • How do tools and services that have been developed within the life span of Open Science projects live on after?
  • Do training sessions provide sustainability?
  • How can we ensure and support sustainability via scholarly communication?
  • Any other topic that crosses your mind!

What is a ThatCamp?

Ask Me Anything about DICE and Sensitive Data!

  • By Luigi Colucci

DICE is proud to be organising and presenting in the Ask Me Anything session of the EOSC Future Sensitive Data in EOSC on Tuesday 6 September 2022.

Participants will hear about issues of working with sensitive data when viewed as a full cybersecurity challenge, including threat analysis, risk assessment, and vulnerability monitoring. In addition, the challenges of working with sensitive data in an Open Science context will be discussed. DICE researchers will present strategies for keeping metadata freely available even while protecting the underlying datasets. OpenAIRE researchers will present strategies for anonymizing sensitive data. Participants will also hear about the challenges of sensitive data in the context of a heterogeneous resource federation.

HSbooster.eu 1st Open Call for R&I projects: Application is now open!

  • By Julie Arteza

As part of the EU Strategy on Standardisation, the EU Standardisation Booster (HSbooster.eu) will provide professional support to EU projects (either ongoing or closed) to help them increase impact and exploitation of project results by contributing to the creation or revision of standards.

Open Calls for EU Projects

It is now possible to submit your application to the first Open Call for R&I projects (in a series of 5 Open Calls that will run until 2024).  All services are funded by the European Commission, therefore at no cost for the project applying. The project can rely on a wide spectrum of Standardisation Experts categorised under multiple domains, in order for each project to be coupled and assisted by the right professional and to receive the necessary support to break into the Standards arena.

The Biodiversity Digital Twin: a new solution to support protection and restoration of ecosystems - Webinar on 13 July 10:00 CEST

  • By Rita Giuffrida


Understanding the forces shaping biodiversity is needed for rational management of natural resources and also to meet the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030 to restore biodiversity in Europe. In particular, researchers need to be able to better predict global biodiversity dynamics and how species interact with their environment and with each other. This can be an extremely difficult task because the processes underlying biodiversity dynamics are complex. Innovative ways to combine data, models and interaction processes are required to predict these dynamics and offer solutions that promote a sustainable management of Earth’s biodiversity and its ecosystems.

In this context, the BioDT project aims to bring together a dynamic team of experts in biodiversity, High-Performance Computing, Artificial Intelligence, digital twinning and FAIR data to develop this Biodiversity Digital Twin prototype. This is going to be achieved through a cooperation between 22 partners that aim to push the current boundaries of...
