The EOSCpilot project is organising the pre-conference Workshop “Research Institutions and Libraries and the Role of Funders in the European Open Science Cloud” on July 4th (09:00 – 12:00), just a few hours before the LIBER Conference. The workshop’s purpose is to bring together research funding bodies, institutions and research libraries as key stakeholders of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC), in order to create the opportunity for them to discuss about how to promote alignment across local policies and workflows and EOSC policies, workflows and services.
Representatives of these three stakeholder categories will have the chance to meet and present their views on how to support research data management, provide incentives for libraries and research institutions on data stewardship as well as on researcher assessment and career. EOSC policies and alignment of DMP requirements will be discussed as well. Part of the workshop will be reserved for speakers and representatives of research institutions to engage in an open debate with workshop participants.
This workshop builds on the outcome of the workshop “How Research Institutions and Libraries can help deliver the European Open Science Cloud” an event focusing on research libraries and institutions in their role as intermediaries of the EOSC, which was held at the International Digital Curation Conference in Barcelona on 19 February 2018.
LIBER plays a significant role in the Engagement and Communication activities of the EOSCpilot project, coordinating the engagement strategy that will establish 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.
The EOSCpilot Project has received funding from the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Grant Agreement no 739563.
