Presentation Open Access
Are you establishing and integrating EOSC activities within your country? Do you need more support and opportunities to swap experiences on how embark on an EOSC action plan and how to reach out effectively to research communities about EOSC services? EOSC is gathering a huge momentum, and how this new research support network is established at national level is now at a critical stage, aspects of which are ongoing at a variety of implementation levels in some member states. While activities are different in each country, they could benefit from and be supported by alignment and good practice exchange. This workshop initiated by OpenAIRE, EOSC hub, and RDA-Europe will explore, with the support of the recently funded EOSCsecretariat.eu project, two areas of implementing EOSC at national level: Establishing national action plans and working with research groups and libraries to raise awareness about EOSC.
In particular the workshop will touch on how to set up national action plans, set priorities especially at governance level, how to establish coordinated commitment from key stakeholders and to develop value added support and commitments for local infrastructure within the EOSC vision. Another aspect will be that of serving local research groups and how to target specific EOSC services to them, which is a challenging part of EOSC implementation.
This session will be structured in a way that will showcase regional examples of EOSC implementation and good practice. The breakout sessions will be grouped at a regional level in order to identify common threads. This workshop will also provide a perfect setting to meet and network with national counterparts and help prepare and pave the way to set up EOSC and a better understanding of how EOSC works at the national level.
