Supporting knowledge creation and sharing by building a standardised interconnected repository of biodiversity data | Zenodo

“This EOSC in practice story was developed within the Cos4cloud project and targets a very wide user base as it is addressed to any researchers, teachers, students, companies, institutions and, more generally, anyone interested in knowing, studying or analysing biodiversity information.

The story presents Cos4Bio, a co-designed, interoperable and open-source service that integrates biodiversity observations from multiple citizen observatories in one place, allowing experts to save time in the species identification process and get access to an enormous number of biodiversity observations. This resource is available on the EOSC Portal Catalogue and Marketplace …”

Elena Giglia, Open Science is here to stay — Filologia Classica e Italianistica – Ficlit

“What lessons did we learn from the COVID pandemic? How has the crisis impacted the current scholarly communication system? And, all in all, does the current scholarly communication work? Are you happy with the way your research is evaluated? During this workshop we shall see the reasons why we need Open Science, how it works, and what you can do starting tomorrow to open up every step of your research – without harming your career. We shall also try to overcome common misunderstandings on Open Access, Open Science and FAIR data and we shall discuss the future of research in the EOSC – European Open Science Cloud era.”

Open Science Policy Austria

English (via deepl.com)

On Wednesday 23.2.2022, the Open Science Policy Austria was adopted in the course of a joint presentation to the Council of Ministers by the BMBWF, BMDW and BMK.
With this presentation to the Council of Ministers and this Open Science Policy Austria, Austria is committed to the Open Science movement and the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). The vision of Open Science is to make scientific processes more open and effective and to use both scientific excellence and open innovative and applied research to address current challenges, which are very comprehensively outlined in the policies of the EU Commission and in the framework of the Global Sustainability Goals (UN SDGs).

Am Mittwoch 23.2.2022 wurde im Zuge eines gemeinsamen Ministerratsvortrages von BMBWF, BMDW und BMK die Open Science Policy Austria beschlossen.
Mit diesem Vortrag an den Ministerrat und dieser Open Science Policy Austria bekennt sich Österreich zur Open Science Bewegung und zur European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). Die Vision von Open Science ist es, wissenschaftliche Prozesse offener und effektiver zu gestalten und sowohl wissenschaftliche Exzellenz als auch offene innovative und angewandte Forschung zur Bewältigung aktueller Herausforderungen zu nutzen, die sehr umfassend in den Policies der EU-Kommission und im Rahmenwerk der Globalen Nachhaltigkeitsziele (UN SDGs) dargestellt werden.

Germany and the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) for researchers | EOSC-Pillar

In this webinar you will hear about EOSC, what EOSC can mean for you and what you can do to support EOSC, with a focus on the case of Germany. The webinar is organised by the EOSC-Pillar project, one of four regional projects that were launched specifically to bring EOSC closer to national research organisations and national data infrastructures.

Monitoring EOSC readiness: FAIR data policies | FAIRsFAIR

“The ambition of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is to provide a  ‘multi-disciplinary environment where researchers can publish, find and re-use data, tools and services, enabling them to better conduct their work’. The realisation of the EOSC vision depends upon the availability of FAIR data (i.e., those data that are findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable). The Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) defines the general framework for future research, development and innovation activities in relation to the EOSC and identified the availability of standardised national Open Science and FAIR data strategies, including the description of these policies, as a key priority to enable the continuous monitoring of the landscape with regards to EOSC readiness. 

This workshop will share recent work undertaken by the EOSC Association to monitor additional activities and define key performance indicators relating to FAIR data policies; share the key aims of a survey on policy monitoring currently being carried out with Member States; and introduce solutions being developed by EOSC Future and FAIRsFAIR to support comparable policy monitoring moving forward. The workshop will allow ample time for questions and discussion. This event will be useful for a broad range of stakeholders who are interested in – or may need to contribute to – the ongoing monitoring of the policy landscape at different levels. ”

3rd ESFRI RIs -EOSC Workshop: What does EOSC bring to RI users? | www.esfri.eu

25.01.2022 to 26.01.2022 The 3rd Workshop on the connection of ESFRI Research Infrastructures (RIs) to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) titled will take place on 25 & 26 January 2022, as an Online Event. The main objective of the workshop is to bring together ESFRI, ESFRI RIs and EOSC stakeholders, in order to showcase and better comprehend the EOSC concept, including the Open Science and “FAIR” policy agenda, and the vision for the future, along with the EOSC value proposition for its users, and ensure an optimal federation of clusters and RIs with EOSC. The event will focus on the current state of EOSC and how the thematic RIs and ESFRI clusters fit into the developing landscape, including the partnership with the newly established EOSC Association. The workshop is organised by the ESFRI Task Force on EOSC and the StR-ESFRI2 Project, in close cooperation with ESFRI and the EC, and with participatiob from the EOSC Cluster projects, the EOSC Association Board of Directors, and the EOSC Future project.

EOSC activities update and UK engagement – Research

“The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is a European Commission (EC) initiative to support the development of open science and the digital transformation of research in Europe and further afield. Now in its implementation phase, it aims to develop a “web” of FAIR data and services, providing a multi-disciplinary environment where researchers can publish, find and re-use data, tools and services. The EOSC is complementary to UK efforts to define and adopt open science policies and practices, and the UK contributes to development of the EOSC through participation in implementation projects and in the EOSC Association, a legal entity established to govern the European Open Science Cloud.

As part of its Tech 2 Tech series, Jisc held an EOSC webinar in March 2021 which helped to confirm strong interest in the EOSC across the UK research community. Another Jisc webinar about EOSC will be held on 15 December. This blog provides an update on the numerous activities which have been taking place as part of the ongoing development of the EOSC, and UK engagement with them….

This includes the Dutch government, that has started to monitor the progress and barriers concerning the Dutch data infrastructure and related facilities, which will be presented and discussed during the “From Here to EOSC” workshop organised by DANS in collaboration with the EOSC Synergy project….”

Agreements on Croatian Open Science Cloud Initiative Awarded to Institutions

“The agreements regulate resources and services necessary for the collection, processing, storage, dissemination and availability of research data.

This initiative is the result of years-long joint efforts of many stakeholders from the science and tertiary education in the open science movement, and the initiative was launched with the support of the Ministry of Science and the Croatian Science Foundation.

It creates preconditions for developing the Croatian open science cloud that will enable coordinated development of the country’s e-infrastructure.

 

The initiative will bring together relevant stakeholders in creating required preconditions for the implementation, realisation, and promotion of open science….”
