Europe’s big open science cloud project is formally getting underway, with the launch of its Governing Board. In this white paper, a cross-sector group of experts – from academia, industry and public-sector institutions – offers its suggestions on which issues need tackling first.
The EU’s proposed Open Science Cloud is an ambitious effort to interlink data, results, labs and researchers across the EU. In this report, members of the Science|Business Cloud Consultation Group suggest how this initiative could be governed.
The Commission’s cloud project could draw on Europe’s strengths in science to improve overall competitiveness – and change the way science is done in many disciplines. So concludes a special report from the Science|Business Network’s consultation group on the science cloud.
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.
