The Eighth International Conference on Scientific Communication in the Context of Open Science PUBMET2021 continues a series of very successful conferences on scientific communication organized by the University of Zadar, the Croatian Association for Scientific Communication – ZNAK, the University of Zagreb and the Ru?er Boškovi? Institute. The conference will be held from 15 to 17 September 2021 under the auspices of the Ministry of Science and Education, OpenAIRE, the European Association of Science Editors (EASE) and SPARC Europe.
“Technological advancements have changed rapidly the way Scientific Research is performed. Modern electronic Infrastructures and digital services have enabled the transition from traditional to high-performance Research, paving the way towards scientific Innovation, to the benefit of the citizens worldwide. Still, knowledge exchange and digital service and data availability beyond geographical borders and scientific domains remains limited, preventing global Research from producing maximum outputs.
?he European Commission tackles these barriers by leading the activities for the creation of the European Open Science Cloud. EOSC is a trusted, integrated virtual environment that provides seamless access to data and interoperable services, enabling millions of scientists to access, store, manage, analyze, share and reuse research data, across borders and scientific disciplines. In this effort, NI4OS-Europe project is a key contributor: it provides integrated solutions to support the EOSC Governance, contribute to its portfolio of services and engage the regional research communities, enabling innovation and inclusiveness in Science. The NI4OS-Europe project is funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Grant Agreement no. 857645….”
“National Initiatives for Open Science in Europe – NI4OS Europe, aims to be a core contributor to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) service portfolio, commit to EOSC governance and ensure inclusiveness on the European level for enabling global Open Science.
Lines of action
Support the development and inclusion of the national Open Science Cloud initiatives in 15 Member States and Associated Countries in the EOSC governance.
Instill within the community the EOSC philosophy and FAIR principles for data Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability and Reusability.
Provide technical and policy support for on-boarding of service providers into EOSC, including generic services (compute, data storage, data management), thematic services, repositories and data sets….”
