During the last two weeks of January 2021, LIBER, the Association of European Research Libraries, and Scientific Knowledge Services organised a series of five workshops on the interaction between research libraries, researchers, and the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). These workshops were aimed at discussing the role of the libraries in connecting researchers to Open Science and the EOSC, and at analysing how their services developed to support researchers can be integrated into the EOSC.

This workshop was held on 20 January 2021, between 14:30 - 16:15 CET on Zoom. The event was the second in a series of five workshops with the aim of answering the following questions:

1. What is the value of EOSC for researchers and research libraries, based on the goals/work of the EOSC?

2. What is the input needed from these stakeholders towards the EOSC?

3. How can these stakeholder groups be actively involved in EOSC activities and what do they need to get involved?

4. What feedback mechanism could be built to continuously inform EOSC, in its quest to remain an agile infrastructure?

This 2nd workshop focused on the Eastern European landscape. The target audience were researchers and research library staff. The participation was 34 people from 31 institutes from 12 countries with the following distribution: Austria (1), Croatia (2), Czech Republic (2), Hungary (1), Italy (1), Lithuania (2), Netherlands (3), Poland (7), Republic of Moldova (1), Romania (8), Slovenia (4), UK (2). The gender distribution of the 34 attendees was: 22 female (65%) and 12 male (35%).
