The Open Science Policy Platform has adopted consensual reports on the European Open Science Cloud governance and on Open Access Publishing in Europe. The report on EOSC includes recommendations on governance and financial schemes, while the report on Open Science Publishing gives recommendations on how to implement open access publishing in Europe by 2020.

The First Call for Science Demonstrators to the EOSCpilot (European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot) received 30 applications from 86 institutions in 19 countries, with challenging projects that would help to define the infrastructure needed by European researchers, while showing the scientific excellence and societal impact that could be achieved by EOSC (European Open Science Cloud). Following peer review, five of these proposals were selected to receive 12 months support starting from 1 July 2017.
The EOSC Summit took place in Brussels, on the 12th of June, collecting 120 invited experts and key players in the European Open Science Cloud. The Summit was the “moment of commitment to the EOSC”, as clearly highlighted by director-general Robert-Jan Smits during the day.
EOSCpilot & DI4R, together!
We are happy to announce that the DI4R2017 (Digital Infrastructure for Research, 2017 edition) will take place on the 30th November and 1st December, right after the EOSCpilot 1st Stakeholder Event - at the SQUARE, in Brussels city center.
Don't miss the opportunity to take part in these two milestone co-located events: sign up to our newsletter and be the first to know when the registrations will open!
European E-Infrastructure Services Gateway project (eInfraCentral http://einfracentral.eu/) aims to gather structured information about all digital services for research from independent providers to create a single entry point to European e-infrastructure services. This survey is designed for digital service providers, their users, customers and interested stakeholders to help to solicit requirements and needs for the development of a common e-infrastructure service catalogue in Europe.
There are decades of lessons learnt and resources to build upon … where does the EOSCpilot project fit in?
According to a recent article in The Economist, the world’s most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data. Today Europe is the largest worldwide producer of scientific data, but an insufficient and fragmented infrastructure means that data is not being exploited to its full potential.
The EOSCpilot project is excited to announce its 1st Stakeholder Engagement event, which will take place at the SQUARE in Brussels on the 28th and 29th November 2017.
This promises to be an extremely interactive gathering of representatives and experts from the numerous stakeholder groups that drive the project, enabling them to have their voice in the first phase of development of the future European Open Science Cloud.
First Call for Science Demonstrators for the EOSCpilot (European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot) project
Applications open until 30th April 2017
“We must create infrastructure. Europe’s final transition must be one from fragmented datasets to an integrated European Open Science Cloud. By 2020, we want all European researchers to be able to deposit, access and analyse European scientific data through a European Open Science Cloud”
The H2020 BlueBRIDGE project has just launched a Competitive Call for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) operating in the fisheries, marine, environmental, ecological and aquaculture). The scope of the call is to support 5 SMEs in solving data management issues by using, completely free of charge, the BlueBRIDGE services and resources (i.e. datasets, services and technologies, and data analytics).
As we are in an age of “data deluge”, private and public institutions and research communities need to tackle the high demand of data-intensive science. The potential of sharing data is incredibly high and indeed can completely revolutionise the way researchers work.
