The 2nd Workshop on the connection of ESFRI Research Infrastructures (RIs) to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), "Research Infrastructures shaping EOSC" that was planned to take place as a physical event was transformed into a virtual event.
The main objective of the workshop was to bring together ESFRI, ESFRI RIs and EOSC stakeholders, in order to showcase and better comprehend the EOSC concept and value proposition for its users and ensure the optimal federation of ESFRI clusters/RIs with EOSC. The latest developments on the EOSC next phase governance and the technical areas were presented, so that the thematic infrastructures could actively contribute and provide feedback to the on-going dialogue, being able to make informed decisions.
The workshop was organised by the ESFRI Task Force on EOSC, the EOSC Cluster projects, the EOSC Secretariat and the StR-ESFRI2 Project, in close cooperation with ESFRI and the EC.
EOSC-Pillar was represented by Project Coordinator Fulvio Galeazzi (GARR) on Wednesday 7 October, during Session 3 "Present and Future: Panel 3 - Report on horizontal EOSC services, along with future goals", chaired by EOSCsecretariat.eu's Per Oster.
Galeazzi joined other key actors in the EOSC Landscape such as Sverker Holmgren (e-IRG), Tiziana Ferrari (EOSC-hub) and Helmut Dolsch (LEAPS), presenting the latest developments and outputs on horizontal, transversal and regional approaches from e-Infrastructure/EOSC thematic providers. His presentation focused on resources, services, and tools for thematic providers from a regional perspective, which is at the core of the EOSC-Pillar mission.
