Debating commonalities and collaboration for thematic services, training and governance towards the European Open Science Cloud

One and a half years after the RDA session in Helsinki, the five ESFRI cluster projects, the RDA community, and European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) representatives come together again, to discuss the past, present and future of their collaboration during the journey of integrating thematic services into EOSC.

This time ESFRI clusters embarked in a house-of-commons styled debate. Looking at commonalities and collaboration in the ESFRI clusters, when contributing to the European Open Science Cloud on three pillar topics:

  • Thematic data services
  • Connecting to end-user communities
  • Governance

The ESFRI cluster projects asked for input from members of the international RDA community, the ESFRI community, EOSC ecosystem and data experts and domain researchers being the end-user community.
