The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) initiative aims to support data-driven research and innovation through shared services and digital facilities enabling archiving, management, access, reuse and further analysis of publicly funded research data and advanced digital objects. Services and digital facilities should operate in accordance with the FAIR principles and policies across disciplines and borders to better deliver scientific and societal benefits

Such a vision requires a science-driven shaping strategy, built on a proper understanding of the needs and practices of research communities and organizations and the way these needs are currently satisfied. It also requires understanding of the various challenges and barriers to the development of sustainable business models.


The main objective of this webinar, co-organised by EOSC-Pillar and NI4OS-Europe, is to discuss current practices in business models. The topics cover open data portals, research and e-infrastructures, digital infrastructures, etc. (funding, procurement strategies, service procurement, data access policy, etc.). 


Representatives of International and European organisations (e.g., WDS, ISC/CODATA, RDA, etc), national funding agencies and related EOSC working groups and projects

Main Topics

  • Topic 1: Current practices, gaps and barriers in funding / revenue models
  • Topic 2: Policy, legal frameworks & data access conditions;
  • Topic 3: Services procurement strategies; 
  • Topic 4: Roadmaps and strategies of funding bodies’.

Main Takeaway
