The Big Mechanism: from text to experiments using text mining


The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) initiative aims to accelerate and support Open Science and Open Innovation in the Digital Single Market. The vision is to enable trusted access to services, systems and the re-use of shared scientific data across disciplinary, social and geographical borders through a globally interoperable infrastructure and lightweight international governance. Funders and research organizations (universities, research centers, and by extension other intermediary actors in the space, like research libraries) not only need to be aware of the development of the EOSC policy framework, but also need to play an active role in its development as major stakeholders in the Open Science landscape.

This interactive workshop will showcase the initial steps towards an emerging EOSC policy framework, and seeks at validating the current work and future direction in the EOSCpilot project. It will engage stakeholders from funding agencies, research organizations and research libraries in a constructive discussion around opportunity and challenges for its current and future development and the aligned implementation at national and local level.
