Webinar: Get together to reflect the national landscape at EOSC

Friday, 11 October 2019, 11:00 – 12:00

Description and scope

The launch of EOSC-Pillar last July and the other regional projects (EOSC Synergy, EOSC Nordic, and NI4OS-Europe), marks an important milestone for the development of the European Open Science Cloud as it further connects national initiatives, policies, infrastructures, services, and people to the EOSC.

The importance of these regional projects cannot be underestimated as without the committed involvement of the Member States and the stakeholders within them, the EOSC risks being unable to reach end-users, source services really needed by them, and create a true platform that enables widespread collaboration, reuse of scientific data and results. 

We want to show that together, the projects themselves, by uniting, make for a stronger voice in Europe and this webinar will be the first of many mutual synergies and engaged activities that will be carried out over the coming months.  

What will these new projects bring to the table? How much of an impact can these projects really make within their covered countries? What are the similarities and differences between them? How much backing and support do these projects have on a national level? How will they synchronise with each other to ensure actions are not duplicated and effort wasted ? These are just some of the questions that this webinar will answer. Register now!
