European Open Science Cloud-related projects: liaison with RDA and new contributions - RDA 11th Plenary Collocated Event

23 Mar 2018

EOSC is a high-level European Commission initiative intended to set off the ground by federating existing scientific data infrastructures that are now spread across disciplines and EU member states to support open science. EOSC will make access to scientific data easier and more efficient. According to the vision, EOSC will be underpinned by “minimal and rigorous global standards for open research data, as well as standards for EOSC based services for collaboration through the EOSC (e.g. to facilitate inter-disciplinarity and avoid fragmentation). These standards (technical, semantic, legal and organisational) must combine long-term sustainability with optimal freedom of local implementation.” 

In this context three EC projects will collaborate to realize the EOSC vision.

EOSC-hub brings together an extensive group of national and international service providers to create a central contact point for European researchers and innovators to discover, access, use and reuse a broad spectrum of resources for advanced data-driven research.  

OpenAIRE-Advance continues the mission of OpenAIRE to support the Open Access/Open Data mandates in Europe.  

FREYA is focussed on building the sustainable infrastructure for persistent identifiers as a core component of open science, in the EU and globally.

Meeting Objectives
Following the related BoF “EOSC-related European Projects getting Global: Engaging with the RDA”, the goal of the meeting is to present and examine the vision, objectives and complementarities of the three Horizon 2020 projects (EOSC-hub, OpenAIRE-Advance and FREYA), that will contribute to the implementation of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). The liaison with existing RDA groups will be presented, and potential new RDA topics will be discussed to support the projects’ vision. The meeting will offer the opportunity to to liaise with interested RDA members from all regions.

Meeting agenda
The structure of the event will have two parts:
PART I. Presentation of vision, objectives and approach of the three projects individually, with attention to both technical and human aspects. The presentations will include the liaison with existing RDA Groups (including a first list of relevant RDA Recommendations and Outputs), their existing engagement with Groups and their plans. 30’ per project
EOSC-hub - Speaker: Diego Scardaci] 
PART II. Interactive discussion of complementarities, and the definition of next steps for joint contributions to RDA existing and new groups. 
Target Audience: researchers and research communities, research infrastructure operators and policy makers, libraries, research data management experts and service providers, scholarly communication service providers, research administrators, funders, open science experts.
