20 April 2021

At the RDA Virtual Plenary 17 (VP17) on 23 April 2021, a workshop on priorities and international alignment for the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) will take place. DANS deputy director Ingrid Dillo has been invited to participate in the panel.

As the EOSC enters the implementation phase 2021-2022, the recently published Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda of the EOSC sets out a clear roadmap for the next decade to ensure commitment, cooperation and consensus from all stakeholders.


The workshop will first provide an overview of the key aspects of the roadmap, with specific references to both the strategic and practical priorities that will be the main focus of the newly formed EOSC working groups. It then goes on to elaborate on the various partnerships and international collaborations that the EOSC should establish based on an initial exploratory study commissioned by the RDA from the EOSC Board.

Topics to be covered include:

  • The landscape of research and scientific communities and their readiness to engage with Open Science Clouds / Open Research Commons.
  • Collaboration between regional, disciplinary and national Open Research Data Commons and Open Science Clouds through the RDA Global Open Research Commons Interest Group.
  • Supporting organisations to participate in Open Science Clouds / Open Research Commons.
  • Overview of the benchmarking of the RDA Global Open Research Commons Working Group

The workshop will take place from 13:00 to 15:30 CEST. From 14:45 to 15:30 CEST Ingrid Dillo, deputy director DANS, will participate in the panel: Priorities and next steps for RDA-EOSC collaboration.
