Event: Building Consistency for Open Science in Europe: Rhetoric and Practice Title: Towards the European Open Science Cloud: The Austrian Experience
Moment of truth: April 2021 – Setting up the Austrian Mandated Organisation
Abstract: The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) envisions establishing a European data infrastructure, integrating high-capacity cloud solutions, eventually widening the scope of these services to include the public sector and industry. In November 2018, the European Commission launched the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) at the University of Vienna. Two years later the EOSC Association was established as a legal entity on 29th July 2020 with four founding members. In January 2021 TU Wien created a new organizational unit, the EOSC and International Liaison Office, based at TU Wien Bibliothek – and in February 2021 the Austrian Mandated Organisation applied for membership in the EOSC Association. But, what does it mean to implement the EOSC at a domestic level, and how does it fit with the now launched EOSC Association? How can relevant Austrian communities engage with the EOSC? How can Austrian EOSC Stakeholders contribute to the structuring of these co-creation processes? How can the addressed communities help to prepare the transition to a new "Stakeholder-based governance” at domestic level?
This presentation offers some reflections for a better understanding of the realization of the EOSC at the present stage at a local level, including the newly established Austrian EOSC Mandated Organisation and the EOSC Support Office Austria.
