"The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is to be established as a central infrastructure for open science in Europe. It is therefore important for libraries and other infrastructure institutions to know what role they can play in this context and how they can already become involved in the course of development. The development of the EOSC is flanked by projects such as EOSCpilot. Ilaria Fava and Valentina Cavalli report on the opportunities for libraries to participate and how they can promote open science.
What are the goals of the EOSCpilot project?
The EOSCpilot is a two-year EC project to support the first phase in the development of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). The EOSCpilot project is working on the definition of the governance framework for the EOSC and is contributing to the development of relevant policies and best practice. The EOSCpilot project funded 15 Science Demonstrators to showcase how real and mature research communities in a wide range of domains could use the services to be provided by EOSC to enhance their research projects with additional storage, HPC and cloud facilities, and so on). In addition to this, the project aims at engaging with a broad range of stakeholders, crossing borders and communities, to build the trust and skills required for adoption of an open approach to scientific research...."
