The EOSC Future project is hosting its first series of open days on 23-25 November 2021. During this virtual event, participants will have a unique opportunity to ask questions about the inner workings of the EOSC Future project, recent developments as well as priorities going forward.
The EOSC Future Open Days will bring together various stakeholders active in the EOSC community to discuss topics that are high on the agenda for EOSC Future, not to mention EOSC in general. These topics include:
- the EOSC Portal
- how EOSC Future supports scientific communities
- EOSC Future engagement opportunities
- the Digital Innovation Hub Business Pilots
- the EOSC Observatory
- the EOSC Future Working Groups
- the EOSC Future Knowledge Hub.
The event agenda, available below, is built around thematic sessions, so participants can choose the sessions that are most relevant or of interest to them. The goal of these sessions is not only to be informative but also to gage the interest and potential contribution of the EOSC community.
Interactive Q&A sessions will elaborate on these thematic topics and session discussions.
