23 January 2020

"(...) In a special address which covered work, climate, data, and BREXIT, President von der Leyen stated that Europe would "co-create a framework to allow the use of this data." She added that the creation of the European Open Science Cloud was underway and that it would be a "trusted space for researchers to store their data and access data from other disciplines." 

The President's highlighting of the EOSC at the World Economic Forum signals the importance of the EOSC initiative to the EC's  policy priorities. There is no doubt the EOSC will play an important role in Europe's future."
