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.
We wanted to know what the EOSC means at country level, who the stakeholders are and how they can get prepared. Our Governance Board (GB) Country Delegate, Stefan Hanslik from the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research, explains his role in the GB and the general framework of the EOSC in a video interview.
The EOSC Governance Board
The EOSC Governance Board (GB) is an institutional group gathering representatives from the Member States and Associated Countries and from the Commission to ensure effective supervision of the EOSC implementation. It is tasked with:
- approving the list of the Executive Board members
- deciding the strategic orientations for the EOSC (based on the advice of the Executive Board) and approving an annual work plan
- assessing the progress of the EOSC implementation
- ensuring coordination with relevant Member States/Commission initiatives
- discussing new activities in support of the EOSC, including its long-term sustainability
All 28 Member States and 10 associated countries have delegates sitting in the GB. Find more information on the EOSCsecretariat.eu website.
