On 4 May 2022, EOSC Synergy, together with EOSC-Pillar, EOSC Nordic, ExPaNDS, NI4OS-Europe, EOSC Future and FAIRsFAIR held a workshop, ‘National Policies Relevant to EOSC Deployment: Status, gaps, and steps towards harmonisation’ in Strasbourg, France.
During the workshop, the findings of the regional EOSC projects on national open science, funding, and access provisioning policies were presented. The workshop was timely as it was organised within the last year of the regional EOSC projects. The workshop was also organised right after the EOSC Policy Event organised by EOSC Future in collaboration with the European Commission, the EOSC Association, the EOSC Steering Board and the University of Strasbourg which tackled the same topic but more on a European policy level and context.
Ludek Matyska, EOSC Synergy opened the event and welcomed more than 100 online and on-site participants. At the opening, he stressed the importance of implementing EOSC at all levels and having a proper geographical coverage, which is one of the main themes of the event.
