To kick-start the year EOSC Finnish Forum organises a webinar that has already become a tradition. We will look back summarizing the main achievements of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) in the past year and look ahead to 2024 that is going to be crucial for EOSC in many ways. Two big topics among other developments are the EOSC federation and the post-2027 governance model. 

This is going to be the year when the EOSC federation will be established. The EOSC federation refers to a federation of distributed systems, combined into a system of systems consisting of multiple “nodes” that are interconnected and can collaborate to share and manage information and resources across thematic and geographical boundaries. The federation and the concept of EOSC nodes have raised a lot of questions within the EOSC community. In the webinar, we will explain these in more detail and point out which are the open questions that still need to be answered. 

EOSC is currently governed through a co-programmed European Partnership under the Horizon Europe framework programme that will end in 2027. This means that the current EOSC governance comes to an end with it. Figuring out the future governance model for EOSC is another major issue to be tackled in 2024. The European Commission, the EOSC Association and the EOSC Steering Board, who together comprise the current tripartite governance and strategic coordination system, have been busy initiating discussion on the future governance of EOSC and investigating different scenarios. Join us to hear what are the options on table for the post-2027 governance model and what are the next steps in making the final decision.
