European Open Science Cloud (EOSC): It’s a brave new world - creating and supporting digital Communities
Over recent years, the vision of Open Science has developed, defining a world of transparent, data-driven science capable of accelerating competitiveness and innovation.
The embodiment of this vision in Europe is the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), first proposed in April 2016 as part of the Communication on the ‘European Cloud Initiative’, making it one of the pillars of European Commission’s Digital Single Market Strategy. In order to make this vision a reality a number of implementation projects are in place and you will find out more about them during this interactive session.
Speakers: Mr Stelios Sartzetakis, (GRNET), Mrs Natalia Manola, (OpenAIRE), Ms Tiziana Ferrari, (EOSC-hub/ EGI), Mr Federico Ruggieri, (GARR), Cathrin Stöver, (GÉANT), Ms Liina-Maria Munari, (DGCNCT), Mr Alasdair Reid, (EFIS Centre)
Want to find out more about how different aspects of the European Open Science Cloud support and forge new Digital Societies – and what this paradigm change means for European National Research and Education Networks? Then this is the session for you! We aim to demonstrate how EOSC supports pan-European digital societies and wider communities and also showcase existing and fledgling National initiatives and collaborations. You will also learn more about how Research and Education communities can benefit from current and future European Open Science Cloud initiatives and how you can get involved.
