This deliverable outlines a minimal set of Rules of Participation for Service Providers and Users in EOSC, and aims at feeding decisions within future discussions on EOSC Governance.
The proposed organisational Rules of Participation for EOSC embrace the principles of openness, transparency and inclusiveness. They have been designed after deep analysis of widely accepted working practices in already established European infrastructures and organisations, and iterative consultations of EOSC Stakeholders.
The deliverable presents a main Rule of Participation for all EOSC service providers, complemented by a series of 7 specific requirements which could be applied depending on the needs of each scientific field. The main rule is that “EOSC services shall be registered in an EOSC compliant or compatible service catalogue visible to the global EOSC gateway”.
