Open science is for many scientists still a statement rather than part of their scientific research and publication routine. To promote the practice of open science, and to inform the Dutch scientific community about the European infrastructural developments that facilitate open science, Data Archiving and Networked Services (DANS) organized an Open Day on Open Science.

The EC-funded project EOSC-hub project started on January 1st 2018, bringing together an extensive group of national and international service providers to create the Hub: a central contact point for European researchers and innovators to discover, access, use and reuse a broad spectrum of resources for advanced data-driven research.
A pillar of the European Open Science Cloud
Over 300 people will gather in Brussels today for the first Stakeholder Forum of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). The European Open Science Cloud will bring together existing scientific data infrastructures to offer Europe’s researchers and science and technology professionals a virtual environment with open and seamless services for storage, management, analysis and re-use of research data.
How are authors of journal articles paying Open Access fees or Article Processing Costs? What is the administrative burden for authors? And do their research organisations have an accurate overview of all these payments?
Knowledge Exchange has just published two new open access journal reports, both based on their recent study carried out among authors of six research organisations.
The European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot project (EOSCpilot) project is supporting the first phase in the development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) as described in the EC Communication on European Cloud Initiatives.
This is your chance, through this 2nd (and last) Open Call for Applications, to take part in the exciting EOSCpilot project, started in January 2017, as one of the Science Demonstrators.
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.
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.
