EOSC-hub Week 2020 goes virtual
As EOSC-hub joins the rest of the European scientific community and the world in being responsible in #flatteningthecurve of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to change the format of the EOSC-hub Week 2020 from a physical conference to an online event. This means that the EOSC-hub week 2020 will still continue, but with significant changes to the structure and format of the event. More information on this will follow.
About the EOSC-hub week 2020
The EOSC-hub Week 2020 will bring together key players in the development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and this year will be colocated with the EOSC Executive Board Consultation Day.
Taking place from 18-20 May 2020, the EOSC-hub Week 2020 will be an important and timely platform to align efforts towards a functional federated science cloud.
The first day, Monday 18 May 2020, will host the EOSC Consultation Day, one day organised by the EOSC Executive Board to present the latest developments of the EOSC and to gather feedback and input from the EOSC stakeholders on all the latest released documents.
Since its launch in January 2018, EOSC-hub has achieved a lot of what it has set out to do. As this will also be the final flagship event of the project, EOSC-hub Week 2020 will be an opportunity to ensure the lasting legacy of EOSC-hub in piloting the first in-demand services needed for enabling Open Science in Europe.
There have been a number of significant developments across the EOSC community since the last EOSC-hub Week in 2019: the EOSC Working Groups tackling Architecture, FAIR, Landscape, Rules of Participation and Sustainability have ramped up their activities and produced a number of relevant outputs; the regional EOSC projects have been launched with new contributions for EOSC; and EOSC Enhance has been funded to maintain and add new functionalities to the EOSC Portal. All these developments, along with EOSC-hub's own activities and results will need to be aligned.
