Opportunities, shortcomings and challenges of open science | GOV.SI

“In the area of research infrastructures, the Swedish presidency proposed that ministers focus on the issue of data-driven research infrastructures as a basis for enabling and facilitating both the research process and the transfer into practice of the knowledge generated. In addition to the necessary investment in data capacity, the challenge is to create a system where research data can be found, accessed, reused and made interoperable between different systems, the so-called Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) principle. Coordination between EU Member States, the European Commission and stakeholders in this area is mainly through the European Strategy Forum on Research Infrastructures (ESFRI) and the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

Among the framework conditions to be achieved for the realisation of open science, the most frequently mentioned by EU Member States were:

 reforming the system of research assessment to foster a research culture of open science;
creating incentives for data sharing;
integrating research infrastructures, including data infrastructures, into the European Open Science Cloud and coordinating EU Member States through the Cloud;
training researchers to implement the FAIR principle in their work;
developing appropriate data management plans as well as a framework (indicators) to monitor success in achieving these objectives….”

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.
