The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) has been promoted and supported by the European Commission over several years since the adoption of the European Cloud Initiative in 2016. Through H2020 funding, the policy concepts are turned into the initial core technical infrastructure, tools and services of EOSC. EC also funded training and resources to enhance skills and laid the groundwork for the design of rules of participation and a governance framework. The governance structure has been established through the Governance and Executive Boards.
In this context eInfrastructure and Science Cloud projects are invited to join a 2-days project meeting and workshop on "Building EOSC through the H2020 projects - current status and future directions" on 9-10 September 2019 in Brussels at the Centre de Conférences Albert Borschette, Rue Froissart 36, 1040 Brussels.
The aim of the workshop is to increase the visibility of the EOSC-related projects funded by the DGs CNECT and RTD, explore their current state of achievement and discuss issues and potential regarding the next steps towards building the EOSC. In addition to all currently active EOSC-related projects funded from the H2020 programme by the DGs CNECT and RTD, the meeting also provides an opportunity to interact with the members of the Governance and Executive Boards and to understand the work done within these bodies.
Each project is invited to join with max 1-2 representatives for both days by replying to the European Commission's CNECT.C.1 - eInfrastructure and Science latest by 19 August 2019.
