Shape the future of the Blue-Cloud! Take our short survey now

  • By Federico Drago

The H2020 project Blue-Cloud has taken a step further towards co-designing a collective, community vision for the future evolution of a web-based cyberspace where marine researchers and innovators will come together to share data and engage in Open Science to advance knowledge and sustainability of the Ocean. Have your say in the way this ambitious initiative develops into the future, so it responds to your needs and expectations as a member of the marine and maritime community.

Blue-Cloud is piloting a web-based Open Science cyberspace to service the needs of marine scientists and researchers in the marine domain. This survey was launched to build a vision for its long-term evolution into 2030, generating value and benefits for a much larger user base and for wider stakeholder communities -including not only scientists & researchers, but also Blue Economy SMEs, maritime industries, policy makers, NGOs and ultimately citizens.

Your response to this survey will...

Open Research Europe: the framework, the goals, and the developments Webinar

  • By Athina Papadopoulou

Open Research Europe is a new publishing platform launched by the European Commission. The platform provides all Horizon 2020 beneficiaries and their collaborators with an easy, high-quality venue to publish Horizon 2020-funded research at no cost and in full compliance with the Commission’s open access policies.

On 15th October 2021, LIBER will host a webinar – ‘Open Research Europe: the framework, the goals, and the developments’. During this event, attendees will get the opportunity to get acquainted with the ORE platform, learn about its goals and the developments so far. Examples and statistics of current users will also be presented to paint a better picture of the platform’s functionalities and importance.

During the fall of 2020, LIBER & ORE ran a survey to gain insights on the awareness, perception and experience with open practices and tools – with a special focus on research librarians. The results and the insights gained from...

ESCAPE and EOSC Future 2nd Citizen Science Workshop

  • By Luigi Colucci

 

This summer ESCAPE Citizen Science will be running our second online ESCAPE and EOSC Future Citizen Science workshop over three days between September 15th and September 17th. If you have a big dataset that could be usefully mined by human volunteers, then we’re keen to hear from you. At the workshop, you will learn from domain experts how to build a citizen science project from scratch using your data and the Zooniverse citizen science platform. Two hands-on hackdays will allow you to apply the skills you have learned with experienced project builders in attendance to help you get up and running quickly and easily.

Our first workshop focussed primarily on the scientific interests of the ESCAPE collaboration partners and provided a pedagogical introduction to deploying citizen science projects on the Zooniverse platform.We would like the second workshop to have a much broader scientific and social-scientific remit,...

FAIRsFAIR and EOSC Nordic synergy

  • By Bert Meerman

Read the attached FAIR Adoption story :  Interesting cooperation and synergy between FAIRsFAIR and the EOSC Nordic FAIRification project, using an automated FAIR evaluator (F-UJI) to measure the FAIRness of the repository's (meta)data. 

In the EOSC Nordic FAIRification project, we defined a sample size of about 100 repositories, for which we made an effort to evaluate the FAIRness of their (meta)data, with the aim to guide and coach the repositories, over time, to a higher level of FAIRness. The guiding and coaching was done via a number of webinars, whereby we selected specific topics that generated a relatively low FAIRness score and where we felt improvements could be achieved.  In this process, we have made a number of  concrete conclusions that could be helpful for similar projects where data sharing and FAIR are relevant. 

The article is attached as a PDF and also available on Zonodo via the link :  https://zenodo.org/record/5226082#.YR-NRC2iFp9

1st EOSC Future RDA Call

  • By Katrien Witpas

EOSC Future launches the first of its RDA Open Calls

As part of the EOSC Future project, the Research Data Alliance (RDA) is launching a call for proposals to improve the technical data frameworks for the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). These proposals should focus on maintaining, optimising and documenting existing frameworks in keeping with RDA’s outputs and recommendations. Applicants can submit their proposal until 29 October 2021, 16.00 CEST via the EOSC Future Grants Platform.

EOSC Future wants to develop a European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) whose technical specificities align with the real-life needs of the EU’s diverse research communities. While many trusted frameworks for FAIR data interoperability already exist, they need to be optimised and documented further to be (re)implemented in EOSC. The RDA Open Calls look to engage the scientific community to improve and document existing frameworks while leveraging existing RDA...

EOSC User SURVEY

  • By Katrien Witpas

The EOSC Future project wants to develop a European Open Science Cloud that can support the shifting needs of the EU’s research communities. To do so, it is looking to understand the day-to-day work culture and habits of its current and potential users. That’s why it is launching its first user survey.

WHO SHOULD RESPOND?
The survey welcomes inputs from everyone in the European research ecosystem. This includes researchers, research librarians, policymakers, higher education administrators or funders as well as citizen scientists. It is also looking to collect insights from any other stakeholders with knowledge of research data practices in general and EOSC in particular.

Above all, this survey hopes to collect responses from scientists in different stages of their careers, from different disciplines and in different European countries to get a better understanding of how they work.

HOW TO RESPOND?
Via the EOSC Portal

Implementing EOSC together: read the report of the EOSC Symposium 2021

  • By Federico Drago

The EOSC Symposium 2021 provided a key engagement opportunity for the EOSC community after the European Open Science Cloud finally entered its highly-anticipated implementation phase in 2021. Delivered online to just under 1,000 EOSC stakeholders from over 63 different countries, this was not only the largest EOSC Symposium yet, but it was also an essential opportunity for convergence and alignment on principles and priorities.

The EOSC Association will play an important role in this phase. With already over 210 member and observer organisations from across Europe, the Association represents a single voice for the advocacy and representation of the broader EOSC Stakeholder community in Europe, promoting alignment of EU research policy and priorities.

The Association will continuously develop the EOSC Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) which will influence future EOSC activities at institutional, national and EU level (including the EOSC-related work programmes in Horizon Europe). This living document will adapt to...
