EOSC-hub supports e-Infrastructures and science clusters in joint statement

Last week, on 17 September 2020, several e-Infrastructures and ESFRI science clusters published a statement - EOSC - a tool for enabling Open Science in Europe following their participation in the consultation on the European Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda. 

The statement called for re-orienting activities towards the development of the EOSC towards higher relevance for research communities and that the focus now needs to be geared towards ensuing uptake of the EOSC by researchers. Involved in the statement are the ESFRI science clusters ENVRI-FAIR, EOSC-LIFE, ESCAPE, PaNOSC, SSHOC and the European e-infrastructures EGI, EUDAT, GÉANT, and OpenAIRE provide inclusive services across Europe and beyond to the benefit of science. 

According to the initiatives, the four key areas that need to be taken into account in the EOSC roadmap include research-oriented services, trust-based open access, collaboration support, and sustainability.
