Online on 11 June 2021, this workshop aims at addressing potential sustainable actions to consolidate the cluster work programmes as well as presenting to the European Commission, ESFRI and the EOSC Association a longer-term vision to support the uptake of Open Science by the global scientific community.
The Science Clusters, ENVRI-FAIR, EOSC-Life, ESCAPE, PANOSC and SSHOC, are EU collaborative projects that were launched in 2019 to link ESFRIs and other world-class Research Infrastructures (RIs) to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).
The main impacts of the Science Clusters' work programmes are: improving researchers' access to data, tools and resources, leading to new insights and innovation for data-driven science both within and beyond the clusters' domains; creating a cross-border open innovation environment for FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) data management for economies of scale; and developing synergies and raising the efficiency and productivity of researchers through open-science standards and thematic services.
As important stakeholders of EOSC, the Science Clusters contribute to its development and its implementation.
This afternoon session participation is restricted to delegations of the European Commission, the EOSC Association and ESFRI Boards and representatives of some international research organisations.
Invited attendees take part in panel discussions about the Science Cluster long-term work-plan as detailed in their Position Statement Document and presented during the morning session of the workshop.
