What is EOSC?

European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is one of the new partnerships supported by the European Commission and the Member States. It aims to realise a web of FAIR data and related services and provides a virtual environment with access to various services supporting open science and the management of the research data lifecycle, from sharing to processing and preserving data. The objective of EOSC is to give the European Union a global lead in research data management and ensure that European scientists reap the full benefits of data-driven science.

EOSC at national level

In January 2021, the Ministry of Education and Culture, Academy of Finland, the Federation of Finnish Learned Societies and CSC – IT Center for Science launched the EOSC Finnish Forum (EOSC-FF), the national-level coordination instrument and network that will allow the Finnish stakeholders to: 

  • discuss and exchange information on the latest EOSC developments and assess its implications on national initiatives;
  • represent the collective interests of Finland into EOSC by formulating a shared approach/message to be communicated to the EOSC Governance;
  • discuss potential future EOSC-related collaborations and opportunities at national level and strengthen the collaboration between Finnish RDI actors.

The EOSC Finnish Forum welcomes the participation of all individuals who are interested in EOSC and have signed or are working for an organisation that has signed the Declaration for Open Science and Research 2020–2025. (See the full list of signatories.)
