How the EOSC Association stimulates community-based Open Science

1 February 2022

The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) Association was founded in 2020 and aims at advancing Open Science in Europe. In order to coordinate and steer the implementation of the EOSC, community based Advisory Groups and corresponding Task Forces covering key areas of implementation have been created. 

An open call was held and recently the Task Forces have been installed. DANS is involved in: 

  • Task Force: Semantic interoperability (Andrea Scharnhorst)
  • Task Force: Technical interoperability of data and services (Wim Hugo)
  • Task Force: FAIR metrics and data quality (Marjan Grootveld)
  • Task Force: Upskilling countries to engage in EOSC (Ellen Leenarts)
  • Task Force: Long-term data preservation (Ingrid Dillo)

Each of these now has members and chairs to lead the work and a charter to describe the impact and outputs that you may expect from each of them. In the coming months, requests for feedback on their work can be expected. DANS is planning to organise a workshop on these EOSC Task Forces and their activities before the summer.
