Welcome to the EOSC Liaison Platform, an online discussion environment that allows the collection of input and provision of feedback to EOSC governance bodies.


Why take an active role in the Forum?

By 2021, the European Open Science Cloud is expected to play an important role in how researchers in Europe work. With several action lines currently in progress to produce the science cloud, this forum is a new channel for you to take part in shaping it.

RDA4EOSC Webinar - Organisational Approaches To Enhancing Skills And Improving Training - 25th May, 12:00 CEST / 10:00 UTC

  • By Timea Biro


We welcome you to this webinar organised as part of the RDA4EOSC activities supporting organisational engagement with EOSC and similar initiatives. 

This webinar is focused on organisational approaches to enhancing skills and improving training related to research data management and Open Science. The aim is to highlight how alignment in terms of skills and training policies and practices enables improved organisational engagement with EOSC and other research commons in the longer term. 

Realising the promise of Open Science is highly dependent on and, at the moment, limited in many areas by the shortage of appropriately skilled workforce (OECD, 2020) (European Commission, 2021). Endeavours like EOSC and other global and regional research commons are dependent on this expertise but also play an instrumental role in building and nurturing the workforce in the future to empower individuals and organisations. To best contextualise this, the webinar will discuss in particular the relevant outcomes of the work of the EOSC Skills & Training Working Group from an organisational perspective. 

REGISTRATION open at https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_LaGY-dhbRRWdnLXhECu6OA

The webinar falls under the activities related to the institutional, policy maker and global stakeholder engagement pillar of RDA4EOSC co-creation grant.

Enhancing the EOSC Portal together - take the survey now!

  • By Luigi Colucci

The EOSC Portal is a gateway to information and resources in EOSC, providing updates on its governance and players, the projects contributing to its development and implementation, key events for the EOSC community, as well as training materials for its different components. 

The EOSC Portal Catalogue & Marketplace acts as a user-friendly entry point to the multitude of services and resources for researchers across different domains, provided by leading European and international organisations.

The Horizon 2020 project EOSC Enhance launched an open survey targeting the entire EOSC community, to look more closely at the individuals who will use and interact with the EOSC Portal, understand who they are, where they come from and, most importantly, what they need in their everyday (research) activities. With this portion of knowledge, with the feedback gathered in this survey, the project wishes to capture most needed and expected enhancements that can be introduced...

Towards an All-Atlantic Data Space for the Ocean: Register for the 3 June side event at #AllAtlantic2021

  • By Federico Drago

This year's All-Atlantic R&I for a Sustainable Ocean: Ministerial High-level & Stakeholders Conference aims at taking existing dialogue and cooperation undertaken under the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance to a new level. This Conference is co-organised by the Portuguese Presidency of the European Union Council and the European Commission. 

On Thursday 3 June, the Horizon 2020 project Blue-Cloud is co-hosting a joint workshop with the All-Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance (AANChOR), the G7 Future of the Seas and Oceans Initiative, and the two Horizon 2020 projects iAtlantic and AtlantECO, as a side-event at the All-Atlantic 2021.

Towards an All-Atlantic Data Space for the Ocean

The purpose of this workshop is to provide a stage to discuss EU and international initiatives working to harmonise and facilitate data sharing across the Atlantic, and provide demonstrations of available tools, training, and the latest open science ‘blue cloud’ technologies to make data findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable.

The workshop engages Atlantic partners in a dialogue to identify the technical needs and challenges of data sharing across the Atlantic ‘pole to pole’, and work to establish the necessary collaborations between nations and organisations required to jointly address regional and global ocean issues in the coming decade.

“As long as you are asking questions such as who is the lead researcher, who owns the research that in itself is setting up a hierarchy”

  • By Katharina Flicker

Adrian Tchaikovsky is a psychologist, zoologist and a Science Fiction-author. If you want to know why too strong an emphasis on hierarchies cripple attempts to build improved societies, or why little knowledge and horribly misconstrued pop science are dangerous, this is the thing for you to read!

Science Mesh in High Energy Physics and Endangered Linguistics - Open Data Systems & Data Science Environments

  • By Stefano Ingallina

The first CS3MESH4EOSC webinar, entitled “Science Mesh in High Energy Physics and Endangered Linguistics - Open Data Systems & Data Science Environments” is taking place on 6th May from 11:00 am-12:00 pm CEST.  The webinar will showcase how the Science Mesh is integrating both data science environments and open data repositories into the federated Science Mesh, supporting collaboration of distributed science teams across disciplines. Exemplary benefits of this integration in Humanities and High Energy Physics fields will be presented by real use-cases that are already getting societal and scientific benefits from those Science Mesh’s features.
