EOSC Symposium 2023

Find EGI at booth #5

From 20-22 September 2023, the extended EOSC community will come together in Madrid, Spain.
EOSC Symposium 2023 will be organised by EOSC Future, together with the EOSC Tripartite collaboration (the EOSC Association, the EOSC Steering Board and the European Commission) in the context of the Spanish Presidency of the Council of the European Union.
This year's subtheme is "Paving the way for a European Data Space for Science, Research and Innovation".
Last year’s event, which took place in Prague on 14-17 November 2022, marked the EOSC Symposium’s return as an in-person event with over 400 participants.

This year, the event will be fully hybrid, facilitating broader in–person and online exchanges between stakeholders from ministries, policymakers, research organisations, service providers, research e-infrastructures and research communities from across Europe and beyond.

Where to meet us

EGI booth

At booth number 5, we will present the EGI services for Research and the activities we do to support the development of EOSC, as well as our key projects contributing to EOSC. The services and expertise of the EGI Federation are being recognised as key assets for the EOSC, especially for the Federating Core. EGI supports the implementation of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) and is contributing to the EOSC Compute Platform, key components of the EOSC Federating core, service portfolio & new service onboarding, EOSC Digital Innovation Hub, user support actions, and EOSC Taskforce support. These elements will be presented at the booth, and participants can engage in discussions with the key EGI people supporting the development. In addition, we will present the key results and impact of the EGI-ACE project.
