Shaping the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC)


The universities of science & technology united within CESAER with a Statement contribute to the ongoing shaping of the EOSC. Recalling our Statement on Long-Term Sustainability (LTS) of Research Infrastructures (RI) dated 9th December 2016, we underline that we (co-) design, (co-) host, (co-) operate, (co-) own, (co-) evaluate (both the quality of data as well as whole infrastructures), (co-) govern etc. significant systems that should co-form the EOSC. Moreover, we help defining and adherence to standards and educate, train and employ key talent for the EOSC. We thus constitute essential stakeholders for its successful implementation.

Our contribution contains five key messages:

  • Federated and decentralised approach needed
  • Ensure broad definitions and scope
  • Fair and secure data principles are central
  • Boost interoperability and inter-disciplinary research
  • Establish alternative metrics, incentivise behaviour & output and train talent

On 26 October 2017, the European Commission (EC) made the EOSC Declaration available for endorsement and commitments to the realisation of the EOSC by 2020. Scientific stakeholders have endorsed the Declaration and first signatories - amongst which CESAER - have signed up to play a role in the EOSC coalition of doers.

For more information, please contact our Vice President for Research Karel Luyben or Secretary General David Bohmert.
