The Governance Framework considers a number of bodies which perform similar roles to that envisaged for the Stakeholder Forum, and considers a generic organisational structure based on these bodies, which would consist of:
- An Oversight Board that agrees the rules of membership, engagement and processes and acts as the key contact point with the Strategic and Executive layers.
- A number of Thematic Area Committees, either based on the Interoperability Contexts, the Stakeholder Roles or broad scientific or infrastructure domains, dealing with specific thematic domains.
- Working Groups, that are time based, work on specific areas with the priorities determined by the Stakeholder forum governance in conjunction with the Strategic and Executive layers of the EOSC Governance.
- Bird of a Feather Groups discuss new activities which may lead to working groups
