A highly participative workshop format, with only 2 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.
Target audience: researchers, research library staff
Are you interested to learn more about the EOSC and to contribute with your insights as a key stakeholder group? Please register your interest below, including a short motivation for your participation. In order to ensure the interactivity and the regional representation of each workshop we will evaluate all registrations before they are finalised and we will select 30 participants from all applications. We are looking for your participation and we will be in touch with you promptly with more information.
Make your voice heard and help build EOSC. The European Open Science Cloud is a world-leading initiative. Contributing to its first design represents a lifetime opportunity. It requires fresh, new ideas and bold ambitions. Community work is the most suitable approach to deliver a service which suits the interest of many.
We count on your enthusiasm, creativity and energy. We are looking for your participation!
Expect to be stimulated and to engage in a deep, highly interactive discussion. You are expected to contribute with ideas, including out of box perspectives, visions, unique practices, less traveled routes that could help build EOSC.
Don’t expect a workshop-like-a-conference. Don’t expect long presentations with “two immediate questions” at the end. Don’t expect a learing programme. Expect an interactive one. Become a part of it! Register now!
Once you registered, please book the day and the time slot in your calendar. Digital events have – statistically – a lower turn up rate. Those that register and don’t turn up will block a valuable participation of another colleague. Thank you for understanding!

Wilhelm Widmark, library director of Stockholm University
Wilhelm Widmark is the Library Director of Stockholm University scince 2012. He has a Master of Arts in literature and a Master of Arts in library and information science from Uppsala University. Wilhelm is active in the Open Science movement in Sweden and Europe. He is the Vice Chairman of the Swedish Bibsam consortia and the Vice Chairman of The National Library’s council on Open Access to Scientific Publication and a member of the Swedish Rectors conferences Open Science group. He is also a member of EUAs Expert Group on Open Science and since December one of the Directors of EOSC Association.
Why should HEI’s engage in EOSC?
What is EOSC and why should research performing institutions, researchers and research libraries engage in the work with EOSC. How can we get people involved? I will give some examples how we have organized the work with EOSC in Sweden.
Klaus Tochtermann, Director, Head of Department: Digital Information Infrastructure, ZBW, EOSC Sustainability WG, Kiel, Germany
The Landscape for a sustainable EOSC
The talk will give an overview of the outcomes of the two EOSC working groups, namely the Country Sheet Analysis report of the Landscape working group and the FAIR Lady Report of the Sustainability working group. The first report compares the extent to which European Member States have introduced or implemented Open Science Policies. The second report explores possible means for sustaining the European Open Science Cloud beyond its initial phase which terminates at the end of 2020. It recommends beginning with a first iteration to establish a Minimum Viable EOSC (MVE) addressing the needs of publicly funded researchers exploiting openly available data.
