    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.

    Towards the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC): reflections on a local basis for domestic Infrastructures

    In November 2018, the European Commission launched the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) at the University of Vienna. 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. But, what does it mean at a domestic level, and how does it fit with the now launched EOSC? Understanding the EOSC structure is a first step in recognizing the opportunities offered by the newly launched EOSC. This presentation offers some reflections for a better understanding of the realization of the EOSC at the present stage. A main topic addressed by the The Austrian Presidency effort is the focussing on the development of sustainable collaborative ecosystems, as foreseen by the EOSC. The attention is particularly directed on Data Culture, Research Data Services, Architecture and Funding. So domestic initiatives will link with the huge pan European initiatives, infrastructures and bodies, e.g.. ESFRI, RDA, GO FAIR, EGI, EUDAT, e-IRG, EOSC-Pilot, EOSC-Hub, OpenAIRE as well as expert groups and advisory groups like the High Level Expert Group on the European Open Science Cloud or the Standing Working Group on Open Science and Innovation of the European Research Area and Innovation Committee (ERAC). A second topic is the governance model. A long-term, sustainable research infrastructure in Europe such as the European Open Science Cloud requires a strong and flexible governance model based on trust and increasing mutuality. As interdisciplinarity is one of the main objectives of the EOSC, the governance model is based on representativity, proportionality, accountability, inclusiveness and transparency. Further several important EOSC milestones occurred during the Austrian EU presidency in the second half of 2018. One of this is the proclamation of the “Vienna Declaration on the EOSC” at Member State level. The Declaration is composed of 11 statements meant to capture our common understanding on the required governance to make the EOSC a reality by 2020. The Declaration recalls already agreed conclusions (Council Conclusion EOSC, Brussels 29. Mai 2018, 9291/18) and the roadmap on EOSC (Commission Staff Working Document, Implementation Roadmap for the European Open Science Cloud, Brussels, 14.3.2018, SWD(2018) 83 final) to start the process of implementation. The implementation of these processes does not mean that everything is already written in stone. Member States and The Commission will work together towards the implementation of the European Open Science Cloud realizing that EOSC is an ongoing Pan-european Process.

    Towards the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC): Reflections on a Local Basis for Domestic Infrastructures

    In November 2018, the European Commission launched the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) at the University of Vienna. The EOSC is a process of making research data in Europe accessible to all researchers under the same conditions of use and usage; it gives a strong push in Europe towards a culture of open research data that are findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR); it fosters networking within the existing European data infrastructures, integrating high-capacity cloud solutions, and in due course, widening the scope of these services to include users from the public sector and industry. Understanding the EOSC structure is a first step in recognizing the opportunities offered by the newly launched EOSC. This presentation offers some reflections for a better understanding of the realization of the EOSC at the present stage, including the activities of the newly established EOSC Secretariat and the so called “5b-EOSC Supporting Projects” (with special focus on EOSC Pillar).

    Towards the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC): Reflections on a Local Basis for Domestic Infrastructures

    In November 2018, the European Commission launched the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) at the University of Vienna. The 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. The EOSC is not a new dedicated infrastructure or software package: it is a process of making research data in Europe accessible to all researchers under the same conditions of use and usage; it gives a strong push in Europe towards a culture of open research data that are findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR); it fosters networking within the existing European data infrastructures, integrating high-capacity cloud solutions, and in due course, widening the scope of these services to include users from the public sector and industry. But, what does it mean at a domestic level, and how does it fit with the now launched EOSC? How can relevant relevant communities engage with the EOSC? How can EOSC Stakeholders contribute to the structuring of the co-creation processes? How can the addressed communities help to prepare the transition to a new "Stakeholder-based governance”? Understanding the EOSC structure is a first step in recognizing the opportunities offered by the newly launched EOSC. This presentation offers some reflections for a better understanding of the realization of the EOSC at the present stage, including the activities of the newly established EOSC Secretariat and the so called “5b-EOSC Supporting Projects” (with special focus on EOSC Pillar). The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) fosters open science and the digital transformation of science by providing a trusted and open virtual environment for the scientific community with seamless access to services addressing the whole research data life cycle. Focus is on user-orientation and inclusiveness across borders and disciplines, whilst the governance should be characterised by a minimal set of rules of participation. Addressed main topics: Open science and the digital transformation of science - Development of sustainable collaborative digital ecosystems - trusted and open virtual environment for the scientific communities - Digital Single Market - Data Culture - Research Data Services - Architecture and Funding - Governance models - Pan European initiatives, infrastructures and bodies – co-creation processes.
