EOSC Pillar is glad to announce the in-person workshop “National Policies relevant to EOSC deployment – Status, gaps, and steps towards harmonisation’, organised by EOSC Synergy, together with EOSC Nordic, ExPaNDS, NI4OS-Europe, EOSC Future, FAIRsFAIR, beyond EOSC Pillar itself.
The event will be held in Strasbourg, France on May 4th, 2022. During the workshop, the findings of the regional EOSC projects on national open science, funding, and access provisioning policies will be presented across three main sessions.
This session focuses on the presentation of findings from the EOSC regional projects on the status of national Open Science Cloud and EOSC policies in various regions. Countries in different regions have different approaches and are progressing at a different pace. The workshop will discuss differences and gaps, with the view that these make the implementation more complicated. Moreover, it will aim to increase understanding of the different policies/approaches and suggest recommendations and steps that can be taken to support a successful EOSC implementation and uptake.
This session focuses on the presentation of findings from the EOSC regional projects with respect to funding policies It will include presentations of successful business models and viable funding schemes at the institutional, national, or regional and international level. It will address the shortage of coherent and stable funding policies, discuss differences and gaps, and it will suggest recommendations and steps that can be taken to foster better alignment of funding policies nationally and internationally.
This session focuses on the presentation of findings from the EOSC regional projects with respect to access provisioning policies. Specific aspects to be considered will be related to EuroHPC and cross-border resources provisioning, cross-border collaboration, and conditions for transnational access; however, access will also be considered in terms of sustainability, from the user point of view and the availability of skills and capacity building. The findings and recommendations will look at the applicable scope (national/cross-border) and the profile of service policies for access (how, where they are provided, to which users and under which conditions).
