Evidence Based Policy Making in Europe Summit 2021

  • By Zachary Smith

Evidence Based Policy Making in Europe Summit 2021

The convergence of Cloud, Big Data and AI has already resulted in major transformation across Government services, yet the process of policy making itself is often left behind. Join Policy Cloud, Decido, AI4PublicPolicy, DUET and Intelcomp at the virtual Evidence Based Policy Making in Europe event to explore major challenges, trends and opportunities to improve public sector decision making that will deliver healthier, happier places to live and work.

Digital technologies have changed the world. Today people expect faster, seamless, on-demand services from their providers, and Government is no exception. For effective urban operations which make life easier for residents, workers and visitors, Public Sector decision making needs to become more agile, breaking down data silos to combine day-to-day tactical decisions with longer term policies and strategies. Disruptive technologies such as Digital Twins, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and High Performance...

EOSC-Pillar Second Annual Report available on Zenodo

  • By Federico Drago

In Year 2 of EOSC-Pillar, we have built on the solid foundations laid last year, strengthening interaction and collaboration on Open Science in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany and Italy, as well as with other European regions and beyond.

The Second Annual Report of the project was published on our Zenodo Community, also featuring an introduction by EOSC Association Director Marialuisa Lavitrano, University of Milano-Bicocca:

To succeed, EOSC and Open Science in general must be both coordinated and widespread, one without the other won’t be enough. That’s why I look at regional coordination projects like EOSC-Pillar as key initiatives to really turn the EOSC in reality.

Read about the main updates from the second year of EOSC-Pillar, interviews, use cases descriptions, in-depth articles!

SSHOC Dataverse Translation follow-up event

  • By Serenella Muradore Gallas

Dataverse is a repository software developed by the Institute for Quantitative Social Science of Harvard University to enable researchers to archive and publish research data. It's supported by an active Dataverse Development Community with contributors around the world.

Currently, the User Interface (UI) is in English. Task 5.2 of the SSHOC project integrated the Weblate tool into the installation pipeline of Dataverse to translate the UI more easily. This procedure can be used by organisations who are interested to have a UI in their national language(s). On June 2nd and September 8th, workshops took place to explain the ins and outs of the tool, and participants shared their very first translation experiences in Weblate.

The next follow-up meeting will give the participants further opportunity to exchange translating experiences. Topics can include translating issues, the Weblate software, the content of the User Guide and future collaboration.

FAIR SSH Data citation: a practical guide

  • By Athina Papadopoulou

Data citation in Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) can be a rather complicated task, in particular when it comes to making it machine actionable. The incompleteness of existing citation methods and complexity of the technical landscape only add to the challenge.

To address this problem, after doing an inventory of citation practices (See https://zenodo.org/record/4436736) SSHOC project T3.4 set out to create recommendations (see https://zenodo.org/record/5361718) and software to:

  • Make SSH data-sets citable;
  • Visualise and exploit citations;
  • And provide facilities for curation and semantic annotation of these resources.

This webinar will focus on practical aspects of SSH citation based on these recommendations, more specifically:

  • The value/necessity of data citation;
  • “FAIR SSH Citation prototype” and other existing tools;
  • Practical advice on how to cite SSH data; 
  • And a

Welcome to the last issue of the Dev Diary created by the EOSC Enhance project, as we approach the end of these exciting two years, over which we have brought together the previously existing and scattered EOSC Portal into one environment.

We have quite a few updates for you, such as our two final webinars in November, one of which in collaboration with EOSC Future on 18 November at 14:00 CET, the project that is going to handle all official EOSC Portal communications and activities from next month.

The seven EOSC Enhance Key Exploitable Results remain as core building blocks for the upcoming evolution of the EOSC Portal, a tangible part of our legacy for upcoming initiatives.

In this issue of the Dev Diary, we will look at the latest updates for users of the Marketplace, at how to register as a provider and onboard...
