The EOSC Symposium is the main EOSC annual event and takes place this year in Prague, Czech Republic, from 14th-17th November 2022 as part of the calendar of events of the Czech presidency of the Council of the EU. This coincides with the Second EOSC Tripartite Event on the 15th of November 2022.

Over 500 stakeholders from ministries, policy makers, research organisations, service providers, research infrastructures and research communities across Europe and beyond are expected to attend the Symposium to reflect on the EOSC key achievements and strategic challenges, and to identify priorities and concrete actions at the European, national, and institutional level to speed up EOSC implementation.

EOSC-Pillar takes part in the EOSC Symposium exhibition with project materials showcased at the EOSC regional projects booth, as well as with the joint workshop "EOSC engagement at regional level", in collaboration with the other Horizon 2020 EOSC regional projects.

EOSC engagement at regional level - Joint workshop

17 November 2022 - 11:00-12:30 CET

During this session regional projects discussed the current topics, challenges and issues concerning the EOSC engagement at regional level. The projects outlined briefly main achievements and regional structures that have been put in place (MoUs, infrastructures etc) to enable EOSC buy-in and highlight success stories. Intra-national pilots for EOSC implementation were also discussed as another approach. Main take-away was an understanding of sustainability of such regional networks and what elements of EOSC will be engaged with in the future. A deeper understanding of how future regional networks can continue and what they would need from the Tripartite.
