Purpose and Scope

This webinar provides an overview on the EOSC Governance Structure including the soon to be released EOSC Strategic Implementation Plan which has been written by the EOSC Executive Board.

Finally, we’ll also be taking a closer look at new opportunities for funding and engagement with EOSC. The webinar is organised by the EOSC Executive Board and the EOSC Secretariat.eu project.

Authored by members of the EOSC Executive Board, the EOSC Strategic Implementation Plan draws from the EOSC Implementation Roadmap to present a comprehensive overview from vision to implementation of the EOSC. An essential part of this is the estabilshment of the the EOSC Executive Board Working Groups which will ensure a community-sourced approach to the current challenges of the EOSC. Topics addressed include examining the EOSC landscape, the architecture, FAIR data, rules of participation, and sustainability.

The EOSCSecretariat.eu project plays an important role in supporting the the EOSC Governance.
