EOSC Secretariat’s Funding Opportunities: Let's co-create now!
The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) fosters open science and the digital transformation of science by providing a trusted and open virtual environment for the scientific community with seamless access to services addressing the whole research data life cycle. Focus is on user-orientation and inclusiveness across borders and disciplines, whilst the governance should be characterised by a minimal set of rules of participation.
According to definitions, co-creation is a process of a product-service development that is focusing on customer experience and interactive relationships. It is “an active, creative and social process, based on collaboration between producers and users, that is initiated by the firm to generate value for customers.” (London Research and Consulting, 2017).
The EOSC Secretariat responds to this clear plea for stakeholder engagement by introducing the Co-creation approach and a budget for its realisation. Therefore, retains a high degree of flexibility in its roll-out plan by adopting a co-creation approach and providing budget for all upcoming, foreseen and unforeseen, activities and actions related to the work of the EOSC Secretariat to support the EOSC Governance.
Submission of application for the EOSC Funding Opportunities for Co-Creation and Studies are now open.
