BE OPEN project results

  • By Caroline Alméras

Open Science presents a novel approach to practice science, in a way that increases openness, integrity, reproducibility of research and faster progress. It aims at making scientific process and results more transparent and accessible at all levels and to everyone. It allows to make science more efficient through better sharing of resources, more reliable through better verification and more responsive to society’s needs.
To support the implementation of Open Science in the transport domain, the European BE OPEN project was launched. In two years’ time, the BE OPEN project succeeded in:

  • (1) Establishing a common understanding of Open Science in transport research by putting forward the main principles and practices of open science, identifying the needs, benefits and means to ensure an appropriate and sustainable implementation and uptake.
  • (2) Engaging key transport stakeholders and creating legal specifications for Code of Conduct on Open Science and Key Performance Indicators for

Help us shape the future of the Blue-Cloud! Take our short survey now

  • By Federico Drago

Join us in shaping the future of Blue-Cloud! 

The Blue-Cloud Project has taken a step further towards co-designing a collective, community vision for the future evolution of Blue-Cloud, a web-based cyberspace where marine researchers and innovators will come together to share data and engage in Open Science to advance knowledge and sustainability of the Ocean. If you work in the marine & maritime domain, you too can have your say in the way this ambitious initiative develops into the future, so it responds to your needs and expectations

It will take you 20 minutes to answer a survey towards this end, yet your answers will inform the Blue-Cloud Roadmap to 2030, a strategic vision and plan to drive the future development of Blue-Cloud into the decade.

The consultation begins on 28 June 2021 and remains open until 20 September 2021.

Open Science FAIR | 20-23 September 2021 | book on your agenda

  • By Paula Moura

Once more this event aims to bring together and empower Open Science communities and services to identify common practices; to see what are the best synergies to deliver and operate services that work for many; and to bring experiences from all around the world and learn from each other.

Open science stands at a crossroads, the reinforcement of implementation and adoption are progressing, with researchers, research institutions, funding agencies, service providers and infrastructures, all engaging at various levels. 

However, different models are emerging which produce a seemingly fragmented ecosystem and achieve small steps on top of traditional scholarly communication system. In order to enable international and interdisciplinary research, we need to ensure interoperability across communities and services, while still maintaining our ability to support diversity of workflows and knowledge systems.  

In this year journey OpenAIRE joined forces with other projects in Open Science area, and with the support...

Missing SSH data and repositories

  • By Suzanne Dumouchel

Dear all, 

The TRIPLE project is looking for SSH resources to be part of the future discovery service of OPERAS Research Infrastructure, the GOTRIPLE platform. 

GOTRIPLE has several added values that makes it completely useful and needed by the SSH community: 

  1. It is a multilingual service: 9 languages (French, Spanish, English, German, Greek, Portuguese, Croatian, Italian, Polish) are part of the platform and the vocabularies of the 27 SSH disciplines have all been aligned in each of the languages (HALSHS - MORESS.xlsx). 
  2. It is a dedicated SSH service, that means the data model is especially adapted to the SSH and that the search is made on SSH concepts. 
  3. It links the results between data (& publications), researchers projects and researchers profiles in order to build a very strong picture of the topic in Europe. 
  4. It is plugged to several innovative services (visualisations, annotations, recommendation, etc.) that increase the reuse
  5. ...

EOSC Future Call for Evaluators

  • By Luigi Colucci

After its official kick-off last week, EOSC Future is going into high gear with the launch of a call for external evaluators by the Research Data Alliance (RDA). This call is seeking experts to evaluate a series of diverse grants to be awarded over the course of the EOSC Future project. Though the call will remain open for submissions until June 2023,  experts will be called on to evaluate grant applications as soon as October 2021.

Over the next two and a half years, the EOSC Future project will develop an environment with professional data services, open research products and infrastructure. It looks to create a so-called ‘system of systems’ that will support European researchers in managing the entirely lifecycle of data: from sharing, managing and exploiting their own data to discovering, re-using and recombining the data sets of others. The project will engage, train and support...

“Scientists and institutions should take the responsibilities to support and increase people’s understanding of research and science”

  • By Katharina Flicker

This month, in order to collect as many perspectives on (future) research environments as possible, we talked to Cixin Liu who is a Computer Engineer and Science Fiction Author. If you want to know why we AIs are “intelligent”, or why it matters to teach scientific reasoning, this is the thing for you to read!

The interview is available for download (English Version, Chinese Version) and can be read on the EOSCSecretariat Website.

SSHOC at LIBER 2021 Conference - Onboarding Citizen Science and the role of research libraries: barriers and accelerators

  • By Serenella Muradore Gallas

This workshop will be building on the outcomes of the session “Citizen Science: What it means for SSH and how can multidisciplinarity be achieved?” that took place during the conference “Realising the European Open Science Cloud: Towards a FAIR research data landscape for the social sciences, humanities and beyond.” in November 2020. The session provided an overview of what Citizen Science is, how research libraries have an essential role to play in its deployment through the BESPOC model and other means, acting as knowledge broker and facilitator among others. At the same time, several Citizen Science and crowdsourcing projects/activities were presented. At the panel session, possible collaborations were uncovered and the organisation of a potential second event was suggested with the prospect of addressing the relation and interaction between EOSC, Research Libraries and Citizen Science.

RDA4EOSC Webinar - Addressing Organisational Interoperability - 10 June, 13:00 CEST / 11:00 UTC

  • By Timea Biro

10 June 2021 - 11:00 UTC / 12:00 BST / 13:00 CEST - REGISTRATION


We welcome you to this webinar organised as part of the RDA4EOSC activities supporting organisational engagement with EOSC and similar initiatives. 

The webinar is focused on addressing issues of organisational interoperability as a means to support internal and external coordination and collaboration, increase efficiency, alignment and engagement with the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). 

As defined in the context of both the European International Framework and the EOSC Interoperability Framework, organisational interoperability refers to the way in which organisations align their business processes, responsibilities and expectations to achieve commonly agreed and mutually beneficial goals. 

In this webinar we will look at a practical example of work done at organisational level to support interoperability. Oscar Corcho, co-author of the EOSC Interoperability Framework report will detail the ongoing organisational interoperability work at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), especially in reference to the strategy, policy and process development and alignment.  

He will be joined by Juan Bicarregui, STFC and chair of the EOSC WG on Rules of Participation and Kheeran Dharmawardena, Cytrax Consulting and chair of the RDA Interest group on social dynamics of Data Interoperability. The panel discussion will explore the topic of organisational interoperability addressing in particular issues connected to organisational processes. It will also look at how this connects to the EOSC Rules of Participation and how initiatives within the RDA can support this and similar organisational interoperability work going forward.
