Report - A Vision for Open Science

Funders are well positioned to shift the incentives for open science inherent in grant application processes and improve the way research is evaluated. Institutions can change the status quo by promoting and rewarding researchers'careers, and collaborating with research libraries in contributing to development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) infrastructure, tools and relevant skills.

EOSC Stakeholder Forum Report - Soap box session for Intermediaries, Research communities & Libraries

SESSION DRIVERS

The driver for the session was to allow stakeholders from research performing organisations, academic institutions and research libraries to discuss amongst themselves some key elements of Open Science and the way the EOSC enables them. Most of the session participants belonged to organisations that do not participate directly in the EOSCpilot project.

 

TAKEAWAY MESSAGES

Very valuable input was provided by this group. It was collected and fitered and is structured below according to the questions asked.

OSFAIR 2017 - How FAIR Friendly is your data catalogue? Exposing FAIR data in EOSC

Research communities and specially research infrastructures are making a concerted effort to homogenize, collect their (meta)data and publish them in the open through community specific data catalogues. This is a good start towards making data FAIR, but how can we ensure availability of domain specific FAIR data and data-analysis services through a common virtual research environment like the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC)?
