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 3rd workshop focused on universities and research organisations from Northern Europe. The target audience was research libraries and researchers. The following questions were addressed:

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

2) What is the input needed from these stakeholders toward the EOSC?

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

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

Excluding the speakers and organiser staff 34 people registered to the event from 34 institutes from 16 countries with the following distribution: Sweden (9), Bulgaria (1), Germany (2), Netherlands (3), UK (3), Chile (1), Romania (5), Norway (1), France (2), Denmark (2), Ireland (1), Scotland (1), Croatia (1), Finland (1), Italy (1), Moldova (1). The gender distribution of the 34 attendees was: 12 female (63%), 6 male (32%) and 1 unknown (5% - did not provide a real person name on Zoom).
