FAIR-IMPACT and FAIRCORE4EOSC collaboration explained in two brand new videos!

  • By Federico Drago

Project and Technical coordinators showcase a FAIR Collaboration for Open Science in Europe.

This June 2022, two European Horizon projects kicked off in Amsterdam, FAIRCORE4EOSC and FAIR-IMPACT. Both projects will contribute to the implementation of the FAIR principles across the European Open Science Cloud in close collaboration with other actors in the EOSC ecosystem.  We interviewed both project and technical coordinators about the envisaged collaboration, watch the videos now!

Contributing to the web of FAIR data and services

In 2015 the vision of a European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) emerged. EOSC would provide an open and trusted environment for accessing and managing a wide range of publicly funded research data and related services, helping researchers reap the full benefits of data-driven science. EOSC is currently in its implementation phase (2021-2027) which requires active engagement and support to ensure widespread implementation and adoption of the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable,...

EGI Conference 2022 - Together for Tomorrow - Innovative Computing for Research

  • By Magdalena Brus

The annual EGI conference is widely recognised as the venue that brings together like-minded professionals from the world of science and scientific computing. During EGI2022, we will look towards the future – how will innovative computing services and solutions help to build a better research ecosystem? How can we work towards innovation? And what opportunities are there for new collaborations?


Together for Tomorrow – join us on a journey of turning ideas into reality, recognising the fact that big ideas require collaboration.

EGI2022 will consist of plenary sessions and breakout sessions, posters and demo sessions, and social events to allow learning and networking, many of them focusing on the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC).


Hosted by EGI and CESNET, EGI2022 will take place on the 20-22 of September 2022. Several co-located events will be organised on Monday, September 19th and Friday, September 23rd.

ESCAPE to the future

  • By Luigi Colucci

ESCAPE (European Science Cluster of Astronomy & Particle physics ESFRI research infrastructures) is an H2020 project and one of the five ESFRis cluster that aims to produce versatile solutions to support the implementation of EOS, encourage cross-fertilisation and foster joint multiwavelength/multi-messenger capabilities in the astronomy, astrophysics and particle astrophysics communities.

The project brings together a cluster with ESFRIs projects with aligned challenges of data-driven research, with demonstrated capabilities in addressing various stages of data workflow and concerned with fundamental research through complementary approaches.

To support the EOSC implementation, ESCAPE has created the “EOSC Cell”, a cross-border and multidisciplinary environment to enable the EOSC community to adopt the services, e-infrastructures, and data stewardship of ESFRI projects.

Why is EOSC relevant to researchers?! Check out our communication material!

  • By Marie Czuray

Dear colleagues,

We hope that you are well and enjoy the beautiful sides of summer - or at least looking forward to enjoying them soon! 

We are wondering...

Would you like to support your network and institution to get involved with the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and show them how they can benefit from it?

For you and everyone else interested in Open Science, we offer an information package to raise awareness about EOSC. On our website you can find more information and download promotional material such as flyers, PowerPoint templates, posters, etc. You can also find the link to our new podcast "Stories of Data: Open.Science.Talk“ there: https://www.eosc-pillar.eu/ambassadors-programme


Our goal is to make the vision and concepts of EOSC tangible and explain it’s practical benefits for researchers. 

If you like our materials and the podcast, please share it within your network so people understand what EOSC is all about! 

When you have shared it, please let us know...

  • How useful is the material to you? How do you adapt it?  
  • How do you promote it

Third TRIPLE ThatCamp on Sustainability in Open Science 13th September, Zadar - Croatia

  • By Tiziana Lombardo

Sustainability is easily one of the most pressing matters and most discussed topics of our time. This is as true for the economy and society as it is for research and thereby for Open Science. At the third TRIPLE ThatCamp we want to discuss and brainstorm on the relationship between sustainability and Open Science with you. If you are a researcher, a librarian, an interested citizen or someone otherwise involved or interested in sustainability in Open Science you are welcome to join us at this event.

Topics of discussion could be:

  • How can the long-term quality of data be secured?
  • What governance/business models are sustainable for Open Science?
  • How do tools and services that have been developed within the life span of Open Science projects live on after?
  • Do training sessions provide sustainability?
  • How can we ensure and support sustainability via scholarly communication?
  • Any other topic that crosses your mind!

What is a ThatCamp?

A ThatCamp (The Humanities and Technology Camp) is an “unconference”, a spontaneous...
