World Café Session: Rules for Participation for EOSC

Date: 9 Oct 16:15 - 17:45, Main auditorium

The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) brings together research and e-Infrastructures to provide a world-class infrastructure environment for excellent science. The aim of EOSC is to support research communities and scientists to discover, request, access and use services and resources they need to pursue their research in an open framework.

The notion of Rules of Participation has been proposed to specify the conditions under which any service provider may participate in EOSC.
The EOSCpilot project has delivered a minimal set of rules following a consultation process with e-Infrastructure and research infrastructure stakeholders. The EOSC-hub project is approaching the topic from a service provisioning perspective, in order to set up common principles for federating service providers as part of the Hub. The 2nd High Level Expert Group on EOSC has gathered further input from stakeholders with a view to propose an initial set of rules which could be taken up by EOSC.

In this World Cafe session, we will review the current state of the discussion regarding these EOSC Rules of Participation, by presenting the work from the EOSCpilot project, the EOSC-hub project and the 2nd High Level Expert Group on EOSC on this important topic. We will identify commonalities and differences between the three initiatives and discuss the next steps.

Via a panel discussion, valuable feedback will be collected from the audience and from the presenters on the current status and direction taken in designing the rules.

Target audience:

  • Community representatives interested in joining or using the EOSC
  • Service providers interested in offering services via EOSC
  • Representatives from funding agencies interested in the rules of participation of EOSC Structure

Presenter(s): Mark VAN DE SANDEN (SURFsara BV), Dr. Isabel CAMPOS (CSIC), Dr. Pascal KAHLEM (ELIXIR)

Room: Main Auditorium

Structure of the session:

  • Presentations 3x20 mins + Q&A = 60 mins
