  • Challenges connected to sustainability, impact and ongoing monitoring of Research Infrastructures in the European Union, and integration with the European Open Science Cloud.
  • Challenges connected to developments at national data services in terms of funding and building capacities internally and complying with CESSDA requirements externally.
  • Challenges connected to widening of CESSDA in terms of support and collaboration with partner countries and new member countries.

During the morning panel of the second day, the Social Sciences & Humanities Open Cloud (SSHOC) project will be presented by Irena Vipavc Brvar, Director of Administration at ADP, The Slovenian Social Science Data Archives of the University of Ljubljana.
