e-IRG Workshop under French EU Presidency - registration is open

  • By Jan Wiebelitz

e-IRG Workshop under French EU Presidency

(30.-31. May, virtual event)

The upcoming e-IRG Workshop under French EU Presidency will be organised as a virtual event with three sessions on 30.-31. May 2022.

The first session addresses the topic "Towards a sustainable European Open Science Cloud - The role of e-Infrastructures" and is jointly organised with the EOSC Steering Board. The goal of this session is to raise awareness on the required sustainability analysis in the e-Infrastructure community and make the first steps in this area, shedding some light on the above elements, with the aspiration that e-IRG recommendations on policies coming out of such an analysis and work, can be brought to the EOSC SB for implementation.

The second session again takes up the topic of the twin “green and digital” transition in e-Infrastructures. The Green Deal is one of key EU priorities in this decade aiming at reaching the climate goals...

Workshop: Open Research Europe-Key synergies for an open and sustainable platform

  • By Athina Papadopoulou

When: Thursday 9 June, 14:00-15:15pm CEST

Register to secure your spot here.

With one year of Open Research Europe (ORE) under the belt, it is timely to review and address the main challenges brought forward both by researchers that have already published with ORE and those that are still hesitant to do so. The platform provides all H2020 and Horizon Europe beneficiaries and their collaborators with an easy, high-quality platform to publish Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe funded research at no cost and in full compliance with the Commission’s open access policies. Despite the indisputable benefits of ORE, a joint effort for advocacy is needed to ensure the success and longevity of the platform.

The vision of ORE is to deliver a high quality, reliable, and efficient publishing venue for EU research and a sustainable venue where grantees can publish post-grant the results of their work while respecting their...

EOSC-Pillar Recommendations for Legal and Policy Harmonisation of Open and FAIR Science in the EU

  • By Federico Drago

EOSC-Pillar produced a set of recommendations reflecting a selection of the most relevant identified shortcomings of the current regulations on FAIR and Open Science across EU member states, which have been operated based on three criteria:

  • The relevance of the legal obstacles at comparative level (e.g., profound regulatory fragmentation and divergences across the five EOSC-Pillar Member States);
  • The relevance of the legal obstacles to the guidelines issued for the benefit of individual stakeholders (e.g., specific needs to facilitate good practises);
  • The urgency of intervention upon provisions, whose modernisation has been deemed to be long overdue.
