Open Science Commons

First Open Science Commons workshop (19 May 2015)

First Open Science Commons workshop (19 May 2015)

The goal of the first Open Science Commons workshop (19 May 2015) is to discuss with representatives from funding agencies, policy makers, data archiving organisations, knowledge institutions, research infrastructures and e-Infrastructures how to collaboratively contribute to the development of an open science commons.

The workshop will take place at the EGI Conference 2015, to be held in Lisbon, Portugal (18-22 May).

The preliminary list of topics to address are:
– the governance, policies needed at national and European level to implement the Open Science Commons
– the economies of scale achieved by sharing of instrumentation, data, e-Infrastructures and knowledge
– the role of member states to ensure the availability of persistent national e-Infrastructures for archiving, storage, computing, networking and other horizontal capabilities necessary to support Research Infrastructures, and of the EC in federating these to support the ERA
– the access policies needed to avoid a digital divide in Europe
– how Research Infrastructures can benefit from the Open Science Commons
– the roadmap for the implementation of the Open Science Commons
