The European Commission (EC) and the newly formed EOSC Association signed a Memorandum of Understanding at the EU R&I Days 2021, marking the start of the Co-programmed European Partnership on EOSC under the Horizon Europe Framework Programme.
President of the EOSC Association Karel Luyben, Rector Magnificus Emeritus of the Delft University of Technology, signed the MoU on behalf of the EOSC Association. He stated:
“The Partnership that we sign today will pave the way for advancing EOSC as the research foundation of the industry-driven European Data Spaces that focus on various sectors relevant for society. EOSC will start federating and strengthening research disciplines and will foster interdisciplinary research. It will support Research and e-Infrastructures to be more widely used and better connected. Overall, we are working on a cultural and technical transition of the way we do science in Europe and beyond. A more efficient and reproducible science trusted by society, more relevant to societal needs and with increased involvement of the society (e.g. through Citizen Science developments).”
The Partnership represents strong commitment from all sides and from all corners of Europe, as we come together to enable impactful science in the digital age.
