Implementing an inclusive European Open Science Cloud

The European Open Science Cloud has finally entered its highly-anticipated implementation phase (2021-2027). The EOSC Symposium 2021 provides a key engagement opportunity for the EOSC community. 

Building on the EOSC Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA), the EOSC Association is establishing a number of Advisory Groups and Task Forces, which will be in place by June. These will focus on priority areas for the implementation phase. 

At the same time, a plethora of EU, regionally and nationally funded research projects are carrying out activities, and actually producing key exploitable results which can contribute to this new phase.

The Symposium also offers an inclusive platform for all stakeholders to share objectives, visions, activities and results in order to shape the future of the EOSC. 

The Symposium is organised by the EOSCsecretariat.eu project as part of its support to the EOSC Governance.

On Thursday 17 June at 11:15 CEST, George Papastefanatos (University of Athens) represents the Horizon 2020 project EOSC Enhance in the session "Sustaining EOSC", joining other key contributors to the EOSC ecosystem such as Peter Doorn from DICE and Ron Trompert from CS3MESH4EOSC.

The EOSC Symposium 2021 is also the perfect chance to learn more about the new EOSC Future project which takes part in several sessions, in particular "The EOSC Symposium and beyond" on Friday 18 June at 14:00 CEST. The session features an overview of the EOSCsecretariat.eu project and the handover of next year's edition of the EOSC Symposium to EOSC Future.


On Thursday 17th June 2021, Michela Magas joined the event on behalf of the OntoCommons project to discuss Alignment and harmonisation between EU marketplaces and synergies and collaboration opportunities between EOSC and OntoCommons (DOWNLOAD THE PRESENTATION).
