Important | 2018-11-23

On 23 November 2018 the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is officially launched. The inauguration marks the conclusion of a long process of consultation and reflection with stakeholders led by the European Commission. The EOSC Portal is the first step towards the EOSC implementation, putting into practice the European Commission’s vision for Open Science. It brings convergence to a fragmented research ecosystem and fosters FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable) rules of participation.

Official EOSC launch in Vienna, as part of the programme of the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, emphasizes the importance of the European Open Science Cloud to European research excellence. The EOSC Portal is the first step towards the EOSC implementation, putting into practice the European Commission’s vision for Open Science. It brings convergence to a fragmented research ecosystem and fosters FAIR rules of participation.The portal is a universal entry point to the services, data and resources that researchers need to perform their science in a collaborative, open and cost-efficient way for the benefit of society and the public.

All service providers, research communities and other entities with a stake in EOSC are invited to visit the EOSC Portal www.eosc-portal.eu and explore how they can benefit from its functionalities.

The EOSC Portal is jointly developed and maintained by the eInfraCentral, EOSC-hub, EOSCpilot and OpenAIRE-Advance projects funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme with contribution of the European Commission.
