Posted: 11-12-2017 Topics: Events

LIBER, within the framework of the EOSCpilot project, is organising the workshop: “How Research Institutions and Libraries can help deliver the European Open Science Cloud” during the IDCC18 Conference to take place in Barcelona in February 2018.

About the Workshop

This workshop will take place on the 19th of February 2018, 13:30 – 16:30, NH Collection Barcelona Tower, Floor -1, Jim Mao, Petronas & Liberty.

It is organised on behalf of the EOSCPilot project to discuss the role of research libraries, academic institutions and other research-performing organisations – the key intermediaries between researchers and service providers – in fostering the uptake of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).

The workshop format will be very interactive. An initial presentation session will set the scene and will introduce and clarify the elements of the EOSC to the participating stakeholders. A breakout session will allow the participants to discuss issues and benefits of the EOSC and provide feedback about its future developments.

About the Project

The European Open Science Cloud for Research pilot project (EOSCpilot) project is supporting the first phase in the development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) as described in the EC Communication on European Cloud Initiatives [2016].

The EOSCpilot project is:

  • Establishing the governance framework for the EOSC and contributing to the development of European open science policy and best practice;
  • Developing a number of pilots that integrate services and infrastructures to demonstrate interoperability in a number of scientific domains;
  • Engaging with a broad range of stakeholders to build the trust and skills required for adoption of an open approach to scientific research.

These actions will build on and leverage already available resources and capabilities from research infrastructure and e-infrastructure organisations to maximise their use across the research community.

About the Conference

The 13th International Digital Curation Conference “Beyond FAIR – from principles to practice to global join up” will take place on 19-22 February 2018 in Barcelona (NH Collection Barcelona Tower)

The conference brings together digital curation professionals and educators with data producers and consumers to consider digital curation in a multi-disciplinary context.
