EOSC Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda Version 0.9
The EOSC Executive Board is pleased to present Version 0.9 of the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) for EOSC. The European Open Science Cloud will enhance Europe’s contribution to the full realisation of the potential of researchers in the digital age, consolidating Europe’s global leadership in exploiting digital capabilities at the service of science.
The first full Version 1.0 of the SRIA is expected to be published by the EOSC Association in January 2021 and will be annexed to the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the EOSC Association and European Union for the EOSC European Partnership.
The current draft 0.9 built upon the outputs of the EOSC Executive Board Working Groups presented at the EOSC Symposium 2020 in October 2020, as well as on the feedback received from the community via the Open Consultation on the EOSC SRIA over the summer.
The SRIA indicates a roadmap for realising EOSC and will support the European Commission in developing the next work programme Horizon Europe (2021-2027). The EOSC is an integral part of the European Commission’s strategy for realising and revitalising the European Research Area (ERA).
In particular, it helps deliver the policy priorities of Open Innovation, Open Science and Open to the World and the goal of Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) data. It also contributes to the six priorities driving the EC’s work programme for 2019 to 2024, and to the specific objectives of the Horizon Europe framework programme.
