EOSC-hub survey: the demand for procurement of digital services for research

In order to better understand the demand for digital services across research, the EOSC-hub project is conducting market research on how these service are currently provided how to improve the procurement process.

In particular th EOSC is specifically looking to:

  • Identify current level of need, demand, spending and funding streams for e-infrastructures and FAIR data management,

  • Understand current and future preferred service supply models, procurement approaches and constraints.

The survey is structured with specific questions dedicated to the following profiles:

  • Researchers or research managers: to identify user requirements

  • Internal IT service provision & support: to understand how services are currently delivered

  • Procurement and finance managers: to understand current funding streams and approaches to procurement

The survey consists of three sections. Depending on your role, you will be automatically taken through the relevant parts of the survey.

The survey should take around 30 minutes and will give us valuable insights to help the future European Open Science Cloud to best meet your needs. You are also welcome to share the survey with other people working in different departments or organisations or having a different role.

The results of this study will be shared on April 11th at the EOSC-hub Week 

Thank you in advance for participating!

Take the survey.
