EOSC-Pillar D3.2 Final Report: Communities and Usage of Services


The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC)-Pillar National Initiatives Survey (NIS) (Bodlos et al., 2020) provides insights into the landscape of the research supporting infrastructure in the five EOSC-Pillar countries (Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, and Italy). Following the NIS dedicated to research supporting infrastructures, Work Package 3 additionally carried out qualitative interviews and a quantitative survey dedicated to user communities.

This deliverable outlines three main contributions.

  • First, we disseminated and discussed the NIS results with open science experts.
  • Second, we conducted qualitative interviews with 14 researchers about their data reuse behavior.
  • Third, we carried out a quantitative survey with researchers in five different countries about their data reuse behavior.
