LEUVEN, 18 October 2022
As one of the first signatories of the 2017 European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) Declaration and as one of the four founding Members of the EOSC Association, our association has been and remains a strong supporter and constructive partner in developing and implementing the EOSC.
Karel Luyben (Rector Magnificus Emeritus of Delft University of Technology and former President of CESAER) is currently the President 2020-2022 of the EOSC Association following his election in December 2020 after a candidacy which was endorsed by major stakeholder organisations demonstrating broad support amongst European scientific communities and research performing and funding organisations.
Karel’s background in European research, education and innovation in general, open science in particular and especially his unequalled experience related to the EOSC, combined with the strong leadership and collaboration he established with the broader community over many years, makes him ideally placed to serve the EOSC Association and its community.
We are therefore honoured to nominate Karel Luyben as our candidate for re-election as President of the EOSC Association during the fifth General Assembly of the EOSC Association taking place from 28 to 29 November 2022.
He has the full support from our association.
