The EOSC Consultation Day took place in May and was co-located with the EOSC-Hub week 2020. Held at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was delivered online with 600 people from around Europe tuning in and joining in on the interactive discussions held in the various break-out sessions.
The event was an opportunity for community engagement on the work of the EOSC Executive Board and its Working Groups. The EB forms an important part of the EOSC interim governance which with the EOSC Governance Board have worked tirelessly over the last 17 months to address a series of strategic challenges on how to implement the EOSC.
This report covers each of the main sessions at the event including a focus on the future as the EOSC interim governance comes to an end at the end of 2020 and the EOSC Association is established. This landmark moment coincides with the beginning of the Horizon Europe programme which will be key in the next implementation phase of the EOSC.
