EOSC symposium 2023

  • 20-22 September 2023
  • Madrid, Spain

The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) symposium will be held in Madrid from 20 to 22 September 2023, as part of the Spanish Presidency of the Council of the European Union. The event is being organised by the EOSC Future project, in collaboration with the EOSC Tripartite Collaboration (the EOSC Association, the EOSC Steering Committee and the European Commission).

This year’s event will be fully hybrid, facilitating wider exchanges between stakeholders from ministries, policy makers, organisations, infrastructures and research communities, who are leading the development and engagement with the European Open Science Cloud.

The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is a flagship EU initiative to foster open science practices in Europe. It aims to offer European scientists and professionals in the fields of science and technology, humanities and social sciences a virtual European space for managing research data. This involves open science services for storing, managing, analysing and re-using satellite data, across borders and scientific disciplines, federating existing infrastructures and services.

As part of the European Research Area policy agenda for 2022-2024, EOSC aims to provide a federated network of FAIR data and associated services for researchers in Europe and beyond. EOSC Future is committed to making this vision a reality by integrating existing infrastructures and services into a coherent ‘system of systems’ approach that adds value to the research community.

In this context, the European FAIR-EASE project, part of the HORIZON INFRA 2021 EOSC programme, aims to implement distributed and integrated services for observing and modelling the Earth system, the environment and biodiversity. This will be done in collaboration with user communities, EOSC and research infrastructures.

Data Terra participates in various technical and scientific projects at European level: EOSC 2023 is one of them, particularly on the aspect of data openness.

The 2023 edition, entitled “Taking EOSC into the future”, will address the following topics:

EOSC after 2027
Governance and guidelines
Impact on the European data and infrastructure ecosystem
