The ESFRI Clusters at RDA House of Commons - 19 April 11.00-14.00 UTC

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 (EOSC-Life, ENVRI-FAIR, ESCAPE, PaNOSC and SSHOC),  FAIRsFAIR, 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. 
We want to beat your Zoom fatigue and engage you in a spiked house-of-commons styled debate moderated by Science communicator Martijn van Calmthout  on three pillar topics: 

  • Thematic data services: “Metadata. Everyone thinks it's a great idea, but no-one wants to use someone else's”.  
  • Connecting to end-user communities: “Onboarding the communities and end-users to EOSC still lacks a clear grassroot, bottom-up approach.”
  • Governance: “In the EOSC governance model, there is no clear link with disciplinary research communities”
