Under public health emergencies, and particularly the COVID19 pandemic, it is fundamental that data is shared in both a timely and an accurate manner.  It is imperative, now more than ever, coupled with the harmonisation of the many diverse data infrastructures, to share preliminary data and results early and often. It is clear that open research data is a key component to pandemic preparedness and response. 

On 20th July, the EOSC Executive Board 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.

We are excited to open the Call for Posters for Virtual Plenary 16 (VP16)!
