The European Open Science Cloud is a giant effort to provide a single point of access to all scientific data. But getting all the infrastructures to integrate and engendering a culture of sharing is a daunting task, say those involved in its creation
Draft roadmap for the European Open Science Cloud paves the way for a governance structure to be in place by the end of 2018. A ‘soft overlay’ will gradually pull resources across Europe into a seamless whole
As the globalisation of research proceeds apace, the nascent European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) will need to be connected with similar initiatives elsewhere in the world. This paper explores how open science is developing around the world and the ramifications for EOSC and research in Europe.
This report explores the case for open science, illustrated by use cases and case studies, spanning academia, start-ups and enterprises. It seeks to explain why public sector and private sector researchers should support open science by highlighting concrete examples of disciplinary breakthroughs that have been fuelled by the sharing of research data, tools and infrastructure.
In April 2016, the European Commission announced a bold new initiative to pull European science fully into the age of the “cloud”. Its €6.7 billion European Open Science Cloud plan could change the future of research, cloud services and data technologies in Europe - affecting strategies for companies, universities and governments.
To track this important initiative, Science|Business, together with the Science|Business Network, is forming a platform for companies, universities and research infrastructure. The group will meet regularly in private and public to gain intelligence and facilitate dialogue in Brussels. For more information about how to get involved, contact David Pringle, Senior Adviser.
