EOSC In Focus Open Consultation

Open consultation for the EOSC Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda

EOSC Open Consultation SRIA

The EOSC Executive Board has published an open consultation on the EOSC Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA). The consultation, which closes on 31st of August 2020, asks for the input of EOSC communities and beyond in setting out the future vision of the European Open Science Cloud.

The open consultation is part of the move towards the next phase of the EOSC and the creation of a legal entity. A first proposal, the ‘European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) Partnership‘ setting out the structure for this entity, was published in May. The SRIA document builds on the EOSC Partnership proposal by drawing from its structure, the work of the Executive Board & its Working Groups and input from stakeholders in order to set out a full and strategic vision. It is imperative to the success of EOSC that its communities directly shape this vision. Therefore, it is vital that stakeholders participate in the creation of the SRIA through the open consultation launched today. Research organisations and universities including their IT departments, individual researchers, policymakers, industry representatives and citizens are all welcome and strongly encouraged to respond.
