EOSC Coordination Day

EOSC Coordination Day

Danubius Hotel Helia, Budapest, Hungary

START: 28 Nov 2019
END: 29 Nov 2019


Coordination is key for a successful EOSC. This event aims to engage the 30+ EOSC related projects in a structured dialogue in order to:

  • facilitate collaboration and definition of common lines of activities and goals
  • coordinate activities and actions in order to avoid duplication of effort

Link to previous Concertation Meeting (9-10 September 2019 in Brussels) outputs:




  • Representatives from EOSC-related projects
  • Representatives from EOSC Working Groups
  • EOSC Secretariat.eu consortium members (as event organisers)
  • European Commission

This meeting is an invitation only event for the EOSC-related project representatives. As with the previous EOSC Concertation meeting we are restricting participation at the workshop to a maximum of two participants per project. Please only register or attend if you have been invited.



Day 1: Objectives of the meeting, presentation of examples of existing collaborations, introduction of possible collaboration topics and selection of the most relevant themes to be discussed during the breakout sessions on Day 2

Day 2: Two breakout sessions each divided by two discussion rounds on selected topics.


Format and discussion topics

Discussion topics consist of two fixed topics (EOSC Catalogues and their sustainability) and two topics selected by the participants through an open discussion. In order to maximise interaction, presentations from the projects are not foreseen. A chair will introduce the specific topics and a rapporteur will be appointed for each session. 

In particular, the discussion topics include: 

TOPIC 1: Catalogues for services and for research products ( federated approaches,  of authentication, registration policies, quality assurance and certification, support, etc.). 

TOPIC 2: Sustainability of Catalogues for services and for research products (where and how these services will be run, how Research Infrastructures and National Infrastructures will contribute to it, how services will be funded, etc.)

TOPIC 3: will be selected by the meeting participants in the last session of the First Day (Open coordination Forum) from  INFRAEOSC-05 Task Force topics, i.e.: 

  • landscaping
  • training and skills
  • dissemination and events
  • FAIR data and Infrastructures
  • policies and governance

TOPIC 4: will be selected during the Open coordination forum (the last session in day 1) among the topics suggested via Slido . This open discussion session will allow projects to suggest topics not covered by the above. All projects are invited to suggest prior to the meeting additional topics for discussion via the slido tool provided.



  • Improved coordination of future collaboration activities and coordination events
  • Formulation of new/needed actions (use of EOSC secretariat co-creation budget if new studies/request are required)
  • Input to the EOSC Governance
  • Share and enhance best practices and success stories
