EOSC Association Seeks CTO

The European Open Science Cloud Association was established in 2020 and is now seeking to recruit a Chief Technology Officer (CTO) to provide technical leadership to the EOSC Association. The role will serve as the primary driver and catalyst for delivery of the technical ambitions of the EOSC Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda (SRIA).

The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is an environment for hosting and processing research data to support EU science. The process to create the EOSC was initiated by the European Commission in 2015. It aimed to develop a trusted, virtual, federated environment that cuts across borders and scientific disciplines to store, share, process and re-use research digital objects (like publications, data, and software) following FAIR principles.

The EOSC brings together institutional, national and European stakeholders, initiatives and data infrastructures to develop an inclusive open science ecosystem in Europe. This can lead to new insights and innovations, higher research productivity and improved reproducibility in science.
