EOSCsecretariat.eu engages with new and existing communities. You can also join EOSC Interest Groups (IGs), an open and collaborative virtual space where you can collaborate, share information, and discuss EOSC related topics.
Hello and welcome to the EOSCsecretariat.eu newsletter. Next Monday's EOSC Consultation Day is a key event for the implementation of the EOSC with the EOSC Executive Board and its Working Groups discussing results and next steps in a series of public consultation sessions. The day is part of the EOSC-hub Week 2020 event which brings together key players in the development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). With COVID-19 keeping restricting our movement, this is the perfect way to keep networking and up to speed with the evolving EOSC landscape.
In this edition, we also have updates on key publications from the Sustainability and FAIR WGs and news on the newly published EOSC branding guidelines.
Science is global endeavour and this month we also have two interviews from international experts. Nobel Laureate Joachim Frank, Columbia University and Isabel Krug, University of Melbourne discuss the needs and visions in their fields of Biological Sciences and Clinical Psychology, as well as the value of the European Open Science Cloud.
For this and more, read on.

This is one of the main reasons for the current barriers to Open Science. Read on...
Isabel Krug is a Senior Lecturer in Clinical Psychology at the University of Melbourne. She sees the EOSC as facilitating inter and multi-disciplinary teams to work together internationally.
