This panel discussion will contribute to a task that is under work in EOSCpilot to investigate and analyze the organizational Principles of Engagement for scientific users (organizational level) and service providers in the EOSC. There are legal/financial/ethical and other organizational aspects that could become barriers for participation – using or providing services - in the EOSC and we aim at a set of Principles that is small and generic enough to allow for participation from all players from the outset.
A study of a series of 20 e-infrastructures and research infrastructures, we are proposing a minimum defined set of principles for EOSC to engage with service providers and users. This set of principles has being refined through an iterative consultation of stakeholders: 2nd EOSCpilot Governance Development Forum, Tallin (EE), Oct 2-3, 2017; EOSCpilot WP2 meeting, Brussels (BE), Oct 18-19, 2017.
Panelists representing scientists and service providers will discuss the proposed set of principles or engagement, and which kind of issues /barriers they would identify in using foreseen EOSC services.


Focus of the session

As Service Providers:
• Would be interested including your services in EOSC with these draft PoE?

As Users:
• Which minimal set of information would you need to select/consume an EOSC service?
(panelists will be asked to reflect on a number of description items identified through EOSCpilot consultations & by the e-InfraCentral project)
•  Which specific criteria would be key for you & your community?
•  From your point of view, do the draft Principles of Engagement identified so far enable open science?
