The EOSCpilot project’s second and final EOSC Stakeholders Forum will be held on 21-22 November 2018 at the Austria Center Vienna.

The event will have a crucial role in the implementation of the EOSC work plan. Building on the challenges faced and the outcomes of the fifteen Science Demonstrators within EOSCpilot, the Stakeholders Forum is a way of further building on the results around the EOSC Governance Model and Architecture and the Rules of Participation.

Who should attend?
This workshop is meant for all players in the EOSC ecosystem who want to be part of the formation of the EOSC Working Groups:

Main takeaways
The EOSCpilot Project has shown that technological progress alone is not enough to ensure Europe’s economy fully benefits from the existence of an open science cloud. The EOSC Stakeholders Forum is key to:

  • share the lessons learned and recommendations from the first early adopters (SDs) & further working titles for additional working groups in the EOSC
  • have practical examples of how the EOSC can facilitate access of researchers across all scientific disciplines to data
  • create a cross-border and multi-disciplinary open innovation environment for research
  • contribute to the shaping of the ‘Rules of participation’ for users and service providers of the EOSC


LIBER’s role in the project

LIBER plays a significant role in the Engagement and Communication activities of the project. LIBER coordinates the engagement strategy that is establishing effective and clear communication channels and outreach activities with various stakeholder groups, towards the goal of broadening the awareness on the value-proposition of the EOSC. LIBER also participates in the project’s activities that identify and catalogue current competencies and capabilities and analyse future requirements.

LIBER’s involvement in the project is tied to two sections of our 2018-2022 StrategyInnovative Scholarly Communication and Digital Skills & Services.
