Chair: Suzanne Dumouchel, Huma-Num (CNRS) & Director, EOSC Association/ESFRI

The Research Infrastructures and their thematic communities are key stakeholders for EOSC, both as providers of thematic quality data and services, and as users of EOSC generic data and services.

Chair: Suzanne Dumouchel, Huma-Num (CNRS) & Director, EOSC Association/ESFRI

The Research Infrastructures and their thematic communities are key stakeholders for EOSC, both as providers of thematic quality data and services, and as users of EOSC generic data and services.
