The EOSC Stakeholder Forum is the community actively contributing and participating to the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC). It is composed by organisations, projects and initiatives fully committed to support the EOSC vision.
This was first formalised in the European Commission's Staff Working Document- Implementation Roadmap for the EOSC.
The EOSC Stakeholder Forum is a fundamental component of the EOSC governance as it allows the collection of input and provision of feedback to the other EOSC governance bodies via the series of events organised by the EOSCsecretariat and various online consultation mechanisms.
Every year two major events are organized by EOSCsecretariat.eu, the EOSC Symposium and the EOSC event @RDA (both held in Autumn 2019 and 2020). These events are an important opportunity for the EC and EOSC implementation projects to meet stakeholders face-to-face in order to show progress and identify stakeholder requirements for the EOSC. These building the blocks are a vital step making the European Open Science a user-friendly reality.
EOSC is all about enabling the sharing of technology, resources and data across different disciplines. The Forum is an opportunity to gather the views of different communities and service providers who are all part of the EOSC building blocks. Incrementally these can be brought together to create the EOSC.
The events are a key opportunity for researchers, scientists and service providers to share good practices and information on local initiatives to promote open science that could be generalised in EOSC.
