ESFRI RIs and EOSC Workshop Summary Report
The Report of the ESFRI RIs and EOSC workshop summarizes the main outcomes and conclusions of the workshop that ESFRI organized in London, January 30th 2019.
The main objective of the workshop was the liaison among ESFRI, ESFRI RIs and EOSC stakeholders, in order to align activities and ensure the optimal integration of ESFRI RIs in developing the EOSC ecosystem. This covered, among others, sharing existing good practices and experiences in Open Science policies, data sharing and reuse, FAIR principles adoption and strategies for federating RI services.
The EOSC has been progressing following a series of agreed policies and strategies; the Strategic Implementation Roadmap and the first elements of the EOSC ecosystem have already been launched. In parallel, the ESFRI RIs have been or will be producing research datasets which need to be made FAIR + Reproducible. Panel discussions revealed some hot topics on how to best coordinate and harmonise EOSC and ESFRI RIs/cluster projects and the breakout sessions dived deeper into some of the key EOSC areas, such as services, policies, architecture, skills and training.
The Workshop has been only the start of a more structured frame of exchanges between ESFRI and EOSC. The objective was broadly met with more than 150 participants joining the workshop from all the above stakeholder groups, including all major projects, initiatives and governance boards of horizontal and vertical (cluster) EOSC projects, ESFRI RIs and ESFRI itself, all with high-level representatives. A next step would be to further identify areas for co-operation between the two bodies.
