COVID-19 Highlights the Need for EOSC

It was only almost four months ago when the first case of the 2019–20 coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak was reported. Fast forward today and we see confirmed cases reaching the hundred thousand mark, more than 4,000 dead, and governments and international agencies scrambling to find a cure or vaccine. For us to find such a solution, the work is no different from putting together pieces of a puzzle. Bits of data and knowledge here and there, not to mention policies that should not only be conducive, but actually encouraging such activities. The future European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) can be the answer to societal challenges as they emerge.
