openaire-nexus-project

“OpenAIRE-Nexus brings in Europe, EOSC and the world a set of services to implement and accelerate Open Science. To embed in researchers workflows, making it easier for them to accept and uptake Open Science practices of openness and FAIRness. To give the tools to libraries, research communities to make their content more visible and discoverable. To assist policy makers to better understand the environment and ramifications of Open Science into new incentives, scientific reward criteria, impact indicators, so as to increase research and innovation potential. To foster innovation, by providing SMEs with open data about scientific production. To this aim, OpenAIRE-Nexus onboards to the EOSC fourteen services, provided by public institutions, einfrastructures, and companies, structured in three portfolios: PUBLISH, MONITOR and DISCOVER. The services are widely used in Europe and beyond and integrated in OpenAIRE-Nexus to assemble a uniform Open Science Scholarly Communication package for the EOSC. The project aims at forming synergies with other INFRAEOSC-07 awarded projects, the INFRAEOSC-03 project, research infrastructures, einfrastructures, and scholarly communication services define a common Open Science interoperability framework for the EOSC, to facilitate sharing, monitoring, and discovery of EOSC resources across disciplines….”

Research Libraries, Researchers & the EOSC: Central/Eastern European Landscape – Scientific Knowledge Services

“A highly participative workshop format, with only 3 short presentations and generous time for a creative discussions session.  Make your participation remarkable!

 

Research libraries have been championing Open Access and Open Science both within and beyond our institutions. We have demonstrated strong leadership in Open Science as policy-makers on the one hand and sound management when implementing plans to realise that policy on the other. Research libraries have been the key holders of data for a long time and play a key role in connecting end-users/researchers to Open Science and the EOSC. Also research libraries develop and maintain services that users rely upon and that need to be integrated into the EOSC. Libraries can, therefore, help develop the requirements for the inclusion of services and data into the EOSC. The strong experience in advocating for Open Science for many years can help to advocate for the EOSC in the research community….”

EOSC SYNERGY SURVEY ON DATATHON TOOLS

“This survey to landscape datathon tools falls under the framework of the EC-funded EOSC SYNERGY Project https://www.eosc-synergy.eu/

EOSC SYNERGY kicked off in 2019 with the aim to expand the capacity and capabilities of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) by leveraging the experience, effort and resources of national publicly-funded digital infrastructures in Britain, Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Slovakia and the Netherlands.

One package of the Project is exploring the variety of software that support training and manipulation of research datasets. In particular, with this survey our intention is to learn more about existing tools that support the organization of datathon events….”

Politics and Open Science: How the European Open Science Cloud Became Reality (the Untold Story) | Data Intelligence | MIT Press Journals

“It is fair to say note the word FAIR here that realizing se European Open Science Cloud (EOSO IS now part and parcel of the European data science policy In particular since EOSC will be from 2021 in the hands of the independent FOSC association and thus potentially way out of the so-called Brussels Bubble”.

This article will document the whole day of how EOSC emerged in this bubbler as one of the policy intentions to foster Open Science un Europe In addition, it will describe some of the typical non rational Toadblocks on the way to implement EOSC The article will also argue that the only way Europe can take care of its research data in a way that fits the European specificities fully, is by supporting EOSC….”

FAIR metrics and certification recommendations for EOSC | EOSCSecretariat

“Two further reports with recommendations have been released by the FAIR Working Group:

Recommendations on FAIR Metrics for EOSC – https://doi.org/10.2777/70791
Recommendations on certifying services required to enable FAIR within EOSC – https://doi.org/10.2777/127253 …”

Recommendations on FAIR metrics for EOSC – Publications Office of the EU

Abstract:  The Recommendations on FAIR Metrics for EOSC document contains an analysis of activities relevant to the definition of FAIR Metrics in the EOSC context. It makes recommendations on the definition and implementation of metrics, proposes a set of metrics for FAIR data in EOSC to be extensively tested, offers an analysis of gaps and potential opportunities for extension, and defines priorities for future work. The report analyses recent and on-going activities relevant to the definition of FAIR metrics for data and other research objects at the European and international levels, in particular in the FAIRsFAIR project and RDA. It also discusses the maintenance of Turning FAIR into reality Recommendations and Action Plan and of the FAIR guiding principles themselves. It then offers seven recommendations on the definition and implementation of FAIR metrics.

 

EOSC Portal Unveils New and Improved Major Release | EOSC Portal

“EOSC Enhance announced the launch of a new Release of the main entry point to information and resources in the European Open Science Cloud, the EOSC Portal.

The new functionalities, which were geared towards improving the experience for users and providers of the EOSC Portal, were implemented following a requirements gathering campaign carried out within 2020. This EOSC Portal Release is one of the key milestones of the EOSC Enhance project (www.eosc-portal.eu/enhance) and will be followed by minor releases during 2021 as well as by a major release scheduled towards the end of 2021. 

The new release features the new EOSC model for the description of providers and resources, more automated processes especially in onboarding resources to the portal, allows providers more control over their resources, enriches the information for each resource allowing users to make better choices, and supports users with more information such as tutorial and documentation areas for providers. 

Across the portal, feedback mechanisms have also been implemented to allow users and providers to provide feedback to the enhancements implemented in the portal. …”
